About this Item

Two years of 12 page weeklies that are well illustrated. The 1876 portion of the volume is supposed to have 648pp but one month of issues from last part of June to last part of July are missing. Probably taken out because of their Centennial content. Still, much content surrounding the 1876 Centennial remains, including an issue illustrating the Centennial building(s) and an issue with wonderful portrait of George Washington on front page. The 1877 issues are numbered through page 636 and there is included a very nice front page treatment of the July 4, 1877 celebrations. Condition of issues varies. Some have cuts horizontally on the last page of advertising and at least one issue has horizontal cut affecting front pages. One page noted that has top of text torn off. On the whole, most of the issues are still in satisfactory collector condition. A treasure trove for anyone interested in breaking the volume for individual issues. The binding of paper over boards with leather spine is rough, with chipping of much of the spine leather. This volume conservatively priced to account for missing issues as noted and some pages with cuts or tears, but overall the content is profuse and pleasing with many outstanding illustrations reminiscent of Harper's Weekly. A heavy book and extra shipping may apply, especially for out of USA orders. Elephant Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 2670
