One of the more rare Winslow Homer prints...

Item # 216510

September 12, 1857

BALLOU'S PICTORIAL, Boston, September 12, 1857

* Winslow Homer print: "A Boston Watering-Cart"

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 the front page titled: "A Boston Water-Cart" (see photos). The ftpg. also has a related article, and even mentions Homer with the text beginning: "Our artist, Mr. Homer, has sketched for the delectation of the patrons of the Pictorial one of our prominent Boston notions--a perambulating fountain in the shape of a water cart...". 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 has mild wear at the edges, some edge tears (with margin a slight text loss as shown in the images), and scattered foxing and/or browning mainly towards the edges
