Hanging of Lincoln's assassins...

Item # 678030

July 22, 1865

FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, July 22, 1865  The entire front page is taken up with a print captioned: "Execution of the Conspirators in Washington, D.C.--The Final Preparations--Appearance of the Criminals on the Scaffold." which includes Mrs. Surratt in her dress, among the others. 
The foldout doublepage centerfold is quite dramatic, captioned: "Execution of the Conspirators, Mrs. Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell (Alias Payne), George Atzerodt and David Harold, in the Prison Yard of the Old Penitentiary, Washington, D.C." showing them moments after the hanging, with their coffins and graves ready for them.  Another full page shows 8 scenes: "In & Around the Old Penitentiary on the day of the Execution of the Conspirators."
Sixteen pages, some foxing with a bit of dirtiness, even toning, a slightly rough left spine, but generally good condition. See images for details.
