Terrific full page baseball print...
Item # 675266
November 03, 1866
LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, Nov. 3, 1866 Certainly the most desired print in this issue is the great full page captioned: "The Great Contest Between the Atlantic Baseball Club of Brooklyn, and the Athletics of Philadelphia, at the Capitoline Grounds, Fulton Ave., Brooklyn". This is one of just a few baseball prints showing the entire field of play with both offensive and defensive players. There is a large crowd of spectators in the foreground as well as the background. A very rare & desirable baseball print.
Although they pale in comparison, other prints within include a full page: "Scene of the Great Conflagration at Quebec, Canada..." "Indigenous Animals of the Andes" and several prints of the: "New Chicago Water-works for Supplying Pure Water from Lake Michigan".
Sixteen pages, some minor edge wear and minor foxing, generally nice.
