HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Oct. 15, 1859
* Centerfold print of a baseball game in progress
Half of the double page centerfold is a terrific illustration of: 'A Base Ball Match at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken' showing a game in progress. A very displayable print, showing almost the entire field. The other half shows a cricket match.
The frontpage shows: 'A German Beer Garden in N.Y. City on Sunday Eve.' Nice full page: 'The English Cricketers--the Eleven of All England'. This issue also contains a serialized portion of "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens and a portrait of Juan Rafael Mora, President of Costa Rica.
Complete in 16 pages and in nice condition.
