Winslow Homer print... Map of the Northern & Southern states...



Item # 172444

February 23, 1861

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Feb. 23, 1861  The front page is taken up with: "Chantrey's Statue of Washington, Now in the State House at Boston, Massachusetts". Prints within include: "Officers' Quarters at Fort Sumter", "Good-by to Sumter", and a quarter page print by famed artist Winslow Homer: "The Late Rev. Dr. Murray", plus a great full page map: "Map Showing the Comparative Area of the Northern and Southern States East of the Rocky Mountains, 1861" which would be nice for display.
Of particular note is the text of the various speeches President Lincoln gave as he left Springfield and headed to take the oath of office in Washington, D.C. Included are those he gave at Springfield, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Pittsburgh. Of particular interest is the "adieu" speech he gave upon his departure from Springfield, Illinois (see image).
Other prints include: "Fort Pickens, Pensacola Harbor, Florida--Looking Seaward, Fort M'Rae In the Distance", "Fort Jefferson, Tortugas (Key West), Florida", "Lieut. Slemmer, U.S.A., Commanding Fort Pickens" "Leiut. Gilman, U.S.A., of the Garrison at Fort Pickens" and a print showing: "Davis and Stephens, President and Vice President of the Southern Confederacy" with biographies of both.
This issue also includes a serialized portion of "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens. The back page has 3 cartoons.
Complete in 16 pages and in good condition.
