(Old Periodicals, 19th Century Newspapers, Americana, Harper's Weekly, Civil War, Illustrated Newspapers, Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln).
Issued December 5th, 1863, New York, by Harper & Brothers.
An actual piece of American history issued during the Civil War. Filled with commentary and wood engraved images relating to that war and issued contemporary to the events.
Original mid-19th century weekly newspaper. An actual, complete newspaper published at the date listed, not a modern re-issue.
During this period, this journal was a major, influential national publication which employed many of the top artists of the era. The centerfold by Nast shows six vignettes, one of which is Emancipation of slaves.
Paper uniformly age toned as typical, some pages loose, balloon page with small loss at bottom edge, "printers crease" to paper on front cover. Issue was once bound up in a volume and is now free-standing and complete unto itself as originally issued.
Nice looking, clean, well preserved example, pages loosened, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. Text on reverse of each page as always, images and maps from Harper's like this are often offered separately for display.
Newspaper measures c. 16" H x 11" W.
