About this Item

Large volume comprising a total of 40 weekly issues. Pagination of volumes as follows: pp.271-414, 1-414, and 1-96. Lacks May 5, 1860, issue which does not appear to have ever been bound in but otherwise collated complete. This volume contains untold illustrations of important events (many full and double page, plus some very large fold outs). *** A beautifully illustrated work that is invaluable for studing war events as they were reported at the time. Frank Leslie's Illustrated was regarded as one of the most popular and profusely illustrated periodicals of its day. *** Condition: Extensive shelfwear with boards detached or nearly so; backstrip mostly perished. With the exception of the missing May 5th 1860 issue (as noted above), all pages are present. Light toning to most pages with light scattered toning spots, as usually found. The large fold out in the May 12, 1860 issue is detached and split with damage and loss to the folding illustration. All other oversized folding illustrations appear to be complete and intact though fragile due to their size. Most front pages have the penciled name of a former owner; in a few cases, other minor notations are present, else all pages are clean. Worthy of rebinding or use as a breaker. Significantly rarer that Harper's Weekly and seldom offered. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000598
