Moved: The web site to a new host due to the demise of AT&T Worldnet, the site's home since it was first created back in 1999. The new home page URL is: http://www.arbycards.info
2/10/2010
Added: Four illustrations to the Zoological series (#12 - Gnu, #22 - Bison, #23 - Polar Bear, and #27 - Big-Horn), which were taken from the 1886 McLoughlin Bros. "Bird and Animal Series" publications, Wild Animals and Game Animals, held in the University of Florida Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature Digital Collection. These full-color illustrations are clearly based on the same previously published drawings used by Arbuckles', yet they differ significantly from Arbuckles' renderings.
2/9/2010
Replaced: The Trip Around The World #32 - Brussels card with a much better image.
Added: Many more notes and references to the Zoological - Origins page (and to the individual card pages) regarding additional books where many of the original illustrations that served as the basis for the Arbuckle Zoological series were also published, including the earliest known use (1861) of any of those drawings (the Otocyon). (Many thanks to Diane Scherzler, the great-granddaughter of the original engraver of the Lion drawing, for her assistance and inspiration in this latest research.)
Additional non-Arbuckle usage (by Holloway) for two of the Sports & Pastimes illustrations - Denmark and Central Africa, contributed by Jerry Anderson.
Another non-Arbuckle usage (by Chocolat Besnier) for one of the Sports & Pastimes illustrations - Lapland.
A non-Arbuckle usage (by The German Dyes) for one of the Rolled White Oats floral vase illustrations.
Updated: Much more of the underlying HTML coding for the entire web site to convert most of the text formatting from basic HTML to Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) methodology. These modifications do not change the format and layout of the site, and most returning visitors should see few differences, other than minor changes in some text fonts and colors. Since I received no reports of page viewing problems following my first, much more limited, CSS implemention 2+ years ago, I'm hopeful that this update will be mostly transparent, as well. (HOWEVER, because I've applied changes to all 979 pages of this site, it's probably inevitable that I've screwed something up. Please let me know if you run across any anomalies.)
11/26/2009

11/1/2007
Updated: Some of the underlying HTML coding for the entire web site, finally taking advantage of a bit of CSS methodology to, hopefully, ensure that each page of the site is being displayed to all viewers with the same appearance that I've always intended. This does not change the format and layout of the site and most returning visitors should see few differences. However, some visitors may notice changes in the text fonts, particularly in the menu. (NOTE: Because I've applied changes to all 961 pages of this site, it's probably inevitable that I've screwed something up. Please let me know if you run across any anomalies.)
Merged: The Birds category into the Miscellany - Numbered series (a long overdue consolidation).
Replaced: One of the Greetings / Holiday "Counter" cards with a slightly better image.
Added: A second variety for one of the Non-Coffee Candies cards.

Moved: The two "Counter" cards that had previously been classified separately as "Pre-1870", into other categories that I think may be more appropriate, one into "Artistic" and the other into "Religious". I've dropped the "Pre-1870" designation.
8/16/2007
Added: Another non-Arbuckle usage for one of the Miscellany - Unnumbered, Dogs illustrations, contributed by Jerry Anderson.
