Two dramatic issues on the Chicago fire...



Item # 653582

October 28, 1871

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, October 21 and 28, 1871 

* Great Chicago Fire of 1871

A nice pair of consecutive issues on the Chicago fire, the Oct. 21 issue containing a very nice doublepage centerfold: "Bird's-Eye View of Chicago As It Was Before The Great Fire" as well other unrelated prints.
The Oct. 28 issues has a very dramatic doublepage centerfold: "Chicago In Ruins" which is a large overview showing the city in flames. Additionally the full front page is a dramatic print: "The Great Fire in Chicago--Group of Refugees in the Street" with prints inside including a nice fullpg: "Chicago In Flames--The Rush for Life over Randolph St. Bridge", with two more full pages with seven fire scenes.
Both issues are complete in 16 pages, and overall, they are in very nice condition. Both centerfolds are in good condition as well, but do have slight imperfections along the vertical fold which are quite common. A discounted price offered as a pair.
