Springfield, Massachusetts... Philadelphia, Pennsylvania...

Item # 614084

August 26, 1854

GLEASON'S PICTORIAL, Boston, Massachusetts, August 26, 1854  The front cover is a half-page "Philadelphia" which includes an illustration of William Penn and an accompanying article "City of Philadelphia". Inside the issue is a half-page "Don Pedro II., Emperor of Brazil"; an article "Springfield, Mass." which includes three illustrations; half-page  "Turner's Falls, on the Connecticut River"; "The Bosphorus" includes two illustrations. Additional illustrations, articles and advertisements are within.
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. 
This is complete in 16 pages with some lite scattered foxing, otherwise is in nice condition.
