Homer's famous "Snap The Whip"...
Item # 631011
September 20, 1873
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, September 20, 1873
* Winslow Homer's most famous print
* Great for framing
This issue has a double page centerfold titled: "Snap The Whip" done by famed artist Winslow Homer. This print, considered by many to be the most desirable illustrations done by Homer to appear in Harper's Weekly--and arguably the most desired issue from the 60 year run of the newspaper--features several young boys playing snap-the-whip in a schoolyard. Very nice, clean condition, sewn-in centerfold with 5 quite tiny binding holes which are almost unnoticeable (one fully in the upper margin, with three of the other four blending in nicely with the image itself). A great display item. Another page has a brief article about the illustration, and a related poem (see images).
Other illustrations include, on the front page: "The New School-Mistress", a fullpg. inside: "Saved" being a life-saving scene on a beach, plus a halfpg. of University Hall on the campus of Northwestern University, & a report about this institution.
Complete in 16 pages, nice condition.
