July 03, 1869

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, July 3, 1869 

* Very early baseball team illustration
* Cincinnati Red Stockings - Reds


The front page features an article on "Henry J. Raymond" with a large illustration of him. A full page illustration "Peace - Finale, Boston, June, 1869".
Certainly the best print is a very nice half page: 'The Picked Nine of the Red Stocking Baseball Club, Cincinnati' showing ten players in uniform with some equipment.
Another half-page illustration is the "Farewell Dinner to Hon. A. G. Curtin, at the Academy of Music, Philadelphia, June 12, 1869". Half of a centerfold: 'View of the City of Boston, Massachusetts, from the South' is very displayable plus 'International Regatta - The Harvard Crew Training on the Charles River'.
A nice full page illustration is 'Strawberry Culture, New Jersey - Pickers in the Field'. A half page illustration by Thomas Nast is "Six Days with the Devil and One with God".
Sixteen pages, lightly & evenly toned, more so at the margins, minor loss to a lower, blank corner, nice condition.
