The Age of Sensation
(19th century American political comic art)
Art by Frederick Burr Opper
Issued 1889, NY by Puck
Wonderful and uncommon original antique 19th century color lithograph print.
Printed in the late 19th century on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In about VG or better condition, some light age toning as typical and some faint trivial age staining, a few scattered tiny original stitch holes along centerfold as issued, overall the printed image remains clean, attractive and well worthy of ownership and display [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
Text on verso as issued, an original lithographed double-page sheet from this once famous and now scarce 19th century biting political periodical.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting satirical image.
Please note-this is a single sheet only, offered for the great visual appeal for framing or collecting.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
Sheet measures c. 13 1/4" W x 19 3/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 11 1/2" W x 18 1/4" H.
Original fold line as issued.
