A composite. Artist not stated. From issue of 8/31/1861.
Original page or cover from Harper's Weekly: A Journal of Civilization. Approximately 10 1/2 x 16 1/2".
Edge fraying, or small chips in margin may be present, but would be concealed by any matte used to frame it. The paper used originally had a large component of cloth so, while the image may appear browned, it is not fragile and would respond well to a professional bleaching.
This is an original piece of American history, as old as the what is shown, and depicts an important event, object, person or whathaveyou.
Harper's employed many important graphic artists and photographers, including Winslow Homer, Mathew Brady and others. The photographer's work was converted by an engraver into the image used in the magazine as, at the time of these publications, photography was not reproducible directly by the existing printing methods.
Dimensions given, if any, are approximate. Scans large to show any defects. Unseen defects described. VG or better condition. Item complete as issued unless otherwise stated.
