Ups & Downs

A. N. Myers & Co (1865-1899) were publishers of popular card games during the 19th century, often manufactured in Germany with high quality litho printing. Titles include: Cock-a-doodle-doo, Struwwelpeter, Natural History Dominoes and Ups & Downs. Each card contains humorous verse which builds into an illustrated story when the cards are laid in correct sequence as a complete set. Each set is identified by a symbol at the lower left-hand corner.
