September 7, 1878
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN SUPPLEMENT, New York, Sept. 7, 1878 This title was a totally separate, stand-alone publication from the more well-known SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Having begun to report on the Centennial Exposition in 1876, its success caused it to continue as a weekly publication into the 20th century. This title is much like its more famous cousin, but tends to have more mechanically-themed articles and illustrations. There are many prints in each 16 page issue. Some very light wear at the margins and a slight bit of scattered browning, this issue is generally in very nice, clean condition.
The outer green wrapper, rarely present, is not included and is extremely decorative. Some very light damp stains, generally very nice condition.
