HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Oct. 15, 1859

* Early baseball game in progress print

The prime content is the nice fullpg: "The English Cricketers--the Eleven of All England", and the double-page centerfold, which has both a terrific illus. of "A Base Ball Match at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken" (showing a game in progress - showing the entire field), with the other half showing a cricket match.

The front-page shows: "A German Beer Garden in N.Y. City on Sunday Eve." This issue also contains a serialized portion of "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens, a portrait of Juan Rafael Mora (ex-President of Costa Rica), and two interesting cartoons on the back-page.

Complete in 16 pages and in very nice condition.
