Baseball scenes... Texarkana...

Item # 672593

May 03, 1890

LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER, New York, May 3, 1890  The full ftpg. is a nice cartoon: "Trying to Convince the President--A Sketch in the White House from Life".
Among prints inside: "May Day in Central Park" "KoKo-Ko-Ho, the Largest Canoe Ever Seen in New York Waters"; a full page with 11 prints of buildings: "Views in Texarkana, Arkansas and Texas".
Perhaps the best is a full page with 8 prints of: "The Opening of the Base-Ball War in New York--General View of the New Grounds of the Rival Clubs" with several baseball-themed prints. A related article on an earlier page.
Complete in 20 pages, very nice, clean condition.
