Very early Abraham Lincoln print in a newspaper...
Item # 172414
November 10, 1860
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Nov. 10, 1860 This is a terrific issue for display as the entire front page is taken up with a nice Winslow Homer illustration of Abraham Lincoln, beardless (see), captioned: Hon. Abraham Lincoln, Born in Kentucky, February 12, 1809." Certainly one of the more desirable issues from the Lincoln era, from before he became president.
Other good content as well with the doublepage centerfold containing a print captioned: "Reading the Returns of the Presidential Election."
Also an intriguing article headed "Death of Grizzly Adams", the fabled mountain man upon whom a television series was based.
Complete in 16 pages.
