Apollo Amusing the Gods
Issued, November 16, 1872 by Harper's Weekly
Art by Thomas Nast
Fine original antique wood engraving. Printed in the mid 19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition, overall very clean, paper is lightly uniformly age toned as typical with some faint scattered staining but the image remains presentable and attractive [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws]. Text on verso as issued.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting image.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photo.
Sheet measures c. 21 7/8" W x 15 5/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 20 3/8" W x 13 5/8" H
Original fold line as issued.
