Covington & Newport, Kentucky Prints in 1856...



Item # 540306

December 20, 1856

BALLOU'S PICTORIAL DRAWING-ROOM COMPANION, Boston, December 20, 1856  This title was formatted much like the more popular "Harper's Weekly" being tabloid-size with several pages of prints. This title actually precedes Harper's, which did not begin publication until 1857. Within this issue are prints captioned: "Covington KY (2 scenes)" "Newport KY (2 scenes)" "Servian Musicians" "Lythan, England" "Surry Gardens, London" "John Neal" and more, all having related text as well.
Sixteen pages with little margin wear and foxing, otherwise in good condition.
