Title Rebel ironclad Merrimac Henrico Cty Jail VA Harper's Weekly ORIGINAL 11/2 1861
Seller ID 1342934
This page comes from an ORIGINAL issue of Harper's Weekly. 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. 11x16". 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.
