Tissue Views, Page two. Views of countries other than France and Italy

A word about tissue views. Each view has a scan and a backlit photo. The camera does weird things with the focus on these and sometimes they are blurred or the detail is not picked out. The photos should be used as an indication of the tinting only as, often what seems like very crude images, will turn out to be totally different (and very much better) on the actual view. It is very difficult to judge the view from the screen but please remember we will refund on any view you are not happy with, if returned within 10 days of receipt.

The question of damage on tissues needs some comment. Piercings were sometimes done in lines and the holes join and become a split. Often the backing tissue has damage whereas the view is fine. The most common type of damage is what I will describe as a fingernail split where, literally, someone's fingernail has pierced the view. So cut your nails before viewing! There is a cottage industry repairing tissues with varying degrees of success. I do not repair or restore ANY views because: 1. My customers prefer it that way, and 2. I am useless at it.
One other term you might see on these pages: 'delaminated mount' means that the layers of card are coming apart and need refixing - an easy job.

Piercings, by the way, were often done on one image (usually the left) only as, obviously, they were not needed on both to get the effect.  I will try to mention all damage but will restrict condition to that.
