Valentine's Day... Scenes of Colorado...
Item # 656918
February 17, 1866
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Feb. 17, 1866 The entire front page has two prints: "Central City, Colorado" which is a town view; and "A Gambling Scene in Denver City, Colorado". Inside is a large print of "George Bancroft"; a full page of the: "Grand Reception Given by the 7th Regiment at the Academy of Music, New York"; a print of: "The Late Rev. Eliphalet Nott"; a half page of: "General Sherman's Reception in the United States House of Representatives".
Perhaps the best print is the doublepage centerfold: "St. Valentine's Day" which is a very decorative & displayable print (see). This centerfold is sewn-in with small binding holes. Also, the back page has a print: "St. Valentine's Post Office".
Complete in sixteen pages, generally nice.
