Great 1886 STATUE OF LIBERTY Bedloe's Island Dedication 44 x 16 Foldout PRINT


eBay Fixed Price Item # 392807468571

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, October 30, 1886 Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the somewhat rare four page foldout of the Statue Of Liberty.

This dramatic foldout is rarely found bound in within the regular issue, and usually when it is, it's in very poor condition due to the constant folding & unfolding. The massive print is captioned: "Liberty Enlightening The World--Bartholdi's Colossal Statue On Bedlow's Island, New... See More
