Great baseball print...
Item # 175080
May 8, 1886
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, May 8, 1886 The full ftpg. shows: "Some Setters & Pointers at the Dog Show" with a related article inside. Other prints include: "The Canoe Exhibition", a Thomas Nast political cartoon: "The Root Of The Matter"; a doublepage centerfold of: "Trinity Church, Boston"; and a fullpg: "Unveiling the Statue of Senator Hill at Atlanta".
But the prime print is the terrific & very displayable full page captioned: "A Double Play--First League Game, New York Against Boston, April 29" which shows a game in progress, showing the entire infield and a play about to be made on a runner at second base (see). This is one of the better baseball prints to be had from the 19th century.
Other news and advertisements of the day are included. Complete in 16 pages.
