Captain Haff Drilling the Crew for the "Defender" on Board the "Colonia"
(Late 19th Century American Culture, Sailing, Boats, Naval, Sailors)
Issued 1895, New York, by Harper's Weekly
Very interesting original antique printed image. The original paper sheet issued at this time in the 1890's, not a modern copy or reprint of it.
In Good+ [or better] condition: sheet displays some minor uniform age toning as typical, light scattered spotting or foxing, light edge wear or small minor nicks, perhaps slight creases, could be a small institutional rubbers stamp (visible in scan if present), could have small edge splits which have been carefully and almost invisibly repaired on verso, etc.- any flaws primarily outside of the printed area and of minimal importance to the value or aesthetics (especially at this low price level for an original artifact over 14 3/40 years old); overall the image remains clean and very attractive. Any defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the images.
If you place any value on your time at all, the time spent trying to locate another example in this condition with this lifetime guarantee of authenticity would almost certainly cost far more than simply purchasing this example here now :-)
Because it is an original printed sheet from this scarce 20th century American periodical, it has printed text or images on the back, which is the only way this image sheet can be acquired as an original other than perhaps as a modern reprint.
Please examine the scan closely as it forms the central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
A delightful 20th century print any collector, dealer, or institution would be happy to possess. Perfect item for display purposes or gift giving.
Sheet measures c. 10 5/8 " H x 14 3/4 " W .
