Title Newfoundland Cod Fishing page from BALLOU'S 8/9 1856
Seller ID 1357475
This page comes from an ORIGINAL issue of Ballou's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion. If dated 1861, it was printed in 1861, etc. You are buying JUST this page, NOT the entire issue. Because the paper in this period was heavily rag cotton in content, the page is supple, not brittle like more modern pulp papers used after 1880. The back is printed, not necessarily with text related to the image. 11 x 14 3/4". Occasional flaws as seen in the scan MAY include foxing, small edge splits not affecting the printed area and age toning. This is NOT A REPRODUCTION, REPRINT or FACSIMILE. It is as old as the event depicted.
Dimensions given, if any, are approximate. VG or better condition. Defects not visible in scan[s] are described. Item is complete as issued unless otherwise stated. NO facsimiles, copies, reprints or reproductions unless specifically stated in description above. Scans show actual item, never a stock image.
