eBay Fixed Price Item # 392807468571

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, October 30, 1886 Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the somewhat rare four page foldout of the Statue Of Liberty.

This large print measures 44 x 15 1/2 inches and shows New York Harbor with a closeup of the newly dedicated Statue Of Liberty recently given to the United States by France. This dramatic foldout is rarely found bound in within the regular issue, and usually when it is, it's in very poor condition due to the constant folding & unfolding.

Great 1886 STATUE OF LIBERTY Bedloe's Island Dedication 44 x 16 Foldout PRINT


eBay Auction Item # 392798108785

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, October 30, 1886 Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the somewhat rare four page foldout of the Statue Of Liberty. Of the many Supplement issues which appeared in Harper's Weekly over its 60 years, this--in our opinion--is the very best. This large print measures 44 x 15 1/2 inches and shows New York Harbor with a closeup of the newly dedicated Statue Of Liberty recently given to the United States by France. This dramatic foldout is rarely found bound in within the regular issue, and usually when it is, it's in very poor condition due to the constant folding & unfolding. The massive print is captioned: "Liberty Enlightening The World--Bartholdi's Colossal Statue On Bedlow's Island, New... See More
