June 23, 1860

LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, NY, June 23, 1860 

* Capture of a slaver - slave ship

Most of the front page is taken up with a print captioned: "Landing Of The Cargo Of Slaves Captured On Board The American Bark Williams By The U. S. Steamer Wyandotte--Disembarkation At Key West" showing slaves coming off a ship in carts (see). The rest of the front page is an article: "Capture Of The Slave Vessels And Their Cargoes" which carries over to page 2. A related print on page 5 shows: "Buildings at Key West...for the Accommodation of the Negroes Captured from Slavers by the United States Cruisers" (see).
Other illustrations in this issue as well but the pale in comparison to the slave prints.
Complete in 16 pages, some dirtiness near margins, generally good..
