Harper's Weekly, edited by George Harvey.
Published New York by Harper & Brothers.
6 weekly issues from 1908. Each issue c. 36 pp.
All with little known and very elusive color illustrated covers by Peter Newell.
Each issue well illustrated with many b&w photographs touching on a wide range of topics plus great period advertising, often pictorial.
Scarce complete issues, with their supplemental outside color extra pictorial advertising wrappers, each here with a scarce Peter Newell color cover.
A nice batch of six Harper's Weekly periodicals from the early 20th century. Covers and articles often focus on the 1908 Presidential election between Howard Taft and William Jennings Bryant.
All remain mostly clean, various assorted small age flaws as typical for random survivals such as these (most loose issue periodicals of this early 20th century era are inherently uncommon/ scarce).
Magazines each measure: 16" H x 11 1/4" W.
