Dedication of the Franklin statue in Boston...



Item # 631180

October 11, 1856

BALLOU'S PICTORIAL DRAWING-ROOM COMPANION, Boston, October 11, 1856 

* Benjamin Franklin bronze statue
* Old City Hall, Boston dedication


Within this issue are prints captioned: "Tufts College, Somerville, Massachusetts" "Warwick Castle"  "The Village Postman"  with a full back page print of: "The French Soldiers' Return From War".
The prime print is the very nice doublepage centerfold captioned: "Inauguration Of The Statue Of Franklin" in Court Square, Boston" with a related article headed: "Inauguration of the Franklin Statue, Boston".
This title was formatted much like the more popular "Harper's Weekly" being tabloid-size with several pages of prints. This title actually precedes Harper's, which did not begin publication until 1857.
Complete in 16 pages, never bound nor trimmed, some minor margin wear, generally good condition.
