The desired F. S. Church centerfold featuring his bears...
Item # 671536
November 27, 1886
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Nov. 27, 1886
* Artist Frederick Stuart Church
* Thanksgiving bears illustration
Nice full ftpg. illus. of: "Chester Alan Arthur" with text inside. Doublepg. centerfold: "The Return of the Native". A half page print shows two views of: "The New Statue of Washington for Philadelphia". A near full page print by Thomas Nast: "What the Colored Race Have To Be Thankful For".
But certainly the most notable & desired print is the doublepage centerfold in the "Supplement" attached which has: "Preparing For A Thanksgiving Dinner--Drawn by F. S. Church", the print showing the 4 bears, as was a common theme of this famed artist. This Supplement issue is rarely found due to the desirability of this print.
The prints in the Supplement are in orange ink.
Complete in 24 pages with the Supplement, very nice, clean condition.
