Tennis on Staten Island... Death of Garfield, with an additional print...



Item # 664188

September 24, 1881

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Sept. 24, 1881  Although we have offered this issue many times, we have not seen before the foldout print: "President James A. Garfield After Death" which is tipped on to the front leaf. See the photo for this print, slightly smaller in dimension than the issue.
As for the balance of the issue: the front page is taken up with a print captioned; "At The Window--A Brief Respite in a Weary Struggle" showing Garfield recovering from being shot (he would die very soon)
The prime content may be the full page print: " A Game Of Lawn Tennis, Staten Island Club Grounds" which shows two men playing tennis. A very nice & early tennis print with a related article on another page headed: "Lawn Tennis".
There are other nice prints in this issue as well, including "The New Harvard Gymnasium" "In the Hop Fields of Central New York" and a full page print: "Opium Smoking in New York" among others.
Complete in 16 pages plus the foldout print noted, good condition.
