BALLOU'S PICTORIAL, Boston, Massachusetts, July 4, 1857
* Winslow Homer Print
* "Hon. William Haile"
Winslow Homer prints are very desirable, and among the more difficult periodical titles in which to find Homer prints is "Ballou's Pictorial", as it rarely comes on the collector market from the Homer era.
Here is one such issue, with a Winslow Homer print on an inside page titled: "Hon. William Haile, Governor of New Hampshire" (see photos). The ftpg. also has a related article, and even mentions Homer with the text beginning: "The accompoanying likeness was drawn expressly for us by Mr. Homer...". Very rarely is there mention of the artist in a related article.
You get the complete 16 page issue which also contains other prints within, but they pale in comparative significance to the Homer print.
This issue is generally in very poor condition, mostly loose at the spine, quite ragged at the margins with some loss a ew tape mends, and scattered dirtiness & foxing. But fortunately the page with the Homer print--and particularly the Homer print itself--are in rather nice condition.
