Issued, 1885 by Harpers Weekly
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 age toned and somewhat brittle, short minor edge splitting repaired on back with tiny pieces of archival tape and of no visual consequence[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. 16 1/2" W x 11 1/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 13 1/2" W x 9 3/8" H.
