Very rare print of Kit Carson...
Item # 666039
April 20, 1867
FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER, New York, April 20, 1867
* Kit Carson - frontiersman
In 33 years of selling rare newspapers I recall only seeing one image of Kit Carson in a newspaper, and this is it. See the photos for the nice front page image captioned: "Kit Carson, the Celebrated Explored & Indian Agent...". On an inside page is an article on him headed: "Christopher Carson, the Indian Agent".
Note: this issue is missing half of the inside pages, so only 8 of 16 pages are present. But fortunately both pages relating to Kit Carson are present. Some dirtiness to the ftpg., some edge wear. A nice display issue.
