St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands... fire engine...

Item # 629761

April 10, 1852

GLEASON'S PICTORIAL, Boston, April 10, 1852  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: "View of the Island of St. Thomas, West Indies"; "Market Place, At St. Thomas"; "Messina, Italy"; "Fire Engine 'Casco' of Portland, Maine"; "Merchant's Exchange, State Street, Boston" and more. All illustrations have related text as well.
Complete in 16 pages with some very lite dampstaining at the upper and right margins, otherwise in nice condition.
