HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, NY, September 20, 1873

* Famous Winslow Homer original print

This issue has a tipped-in double page centerfold:

* Snap-The-Whip

drawn By Winslow. This print, considered by many to be the most desirable illustrations done by Homer to appear in Harper's Weekly, features several young boys playing snap-the-whip in a schoolyard.

Another page has a brief article about the illustration as well as a related poem.

Other illustrations include, on the ftpg., a halfpg: "The New School-Mistress", a fullpg. inside: "Saved" being a life-saving scene on a beach, plus a halfpg. of University Hall on the campus of Northwestern University, & a report about this institution.

The Homer print, which is loose, has a stain in the lower margin below the caption, there is a bit of fold separation at the very bottom in the lower margin, has archival mends to two minor tear in the caption, & to a few minor margin tears, has mends on the reverse to two minor weak spots (barely noticeable) along the fold, otherwise the illustration is in very good condition.

Issue is missing an inside leaf, has some lite foxing on the ftpg., otherwise in nice condition.
