Item # 622537
January 2, 1858
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, January 2, 1858 The front page features a full page print: "New Year's Visiting in New York". Two other nice full page prints inside: "The Birth of the New Year' and 'A Happy New Year!" and an article "The Life of American Students at Heidelberg" features several small illustrations.
Interesting article with two illustrations: "Plan of a Submarine Railway" between England & France, which has just now become a reality. An article "Pin-Money and Needle-Money" features two illustrations entitled the same. "Travel Notes in Bible Lands" features a one-third page print: "Iskanderoon, and the Field of the Battle of Issus" with another small print.
Sixteen pages, this is a "2nd rate" issue with various minor disfigurements causing it to be less than nice condition. But no missing portions or serious damage.
