Great, early scenes from Yellowstone...
Item # 674710
September 15, 1888
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN SUPPLEMENT, New York, Sept. 15, 1888
* Early Yellowstone Park
The title is a bit of a misnomer as this was actually a separate, stand-along publication, not a supplement to the regular title.
The front page features four illustrations showing: "Scenes In The Yellowstone National Park" including "On the Shores of the Yellowstone Lake" "Paint Pots" "The Beehive Geyser in Action" and "Old Faithful Geyser in Action". There is a related article: "Yellowstone Park" which carries over to take all of pg. 2, with most of pg. 3 taken up with 6 more prints from Yellowstone.
Page 4 includes a nice print: "A Sketch In the 'Bad Lands' ".
Sixteen pages, irregular at the spine from disbinding, good condition. A bit disguised at the middle of the ftpg. is a stamp "Wilmington Institute".
