New York. Currier & Ives. 1868.
Handcolored lithograph, image approximately 8 x 12 1/2 inches on sheet 10 x 15 inches, in vintage wood frame 12 x 15 3/4 inches with wood backing. Some faint soiling and a few fox spots, damp staining to lower right and left corners quite light on the print side and not visibly distracting (the stain is considerably lighter than it appears in the digital image). Very good bright condition. Attractively colored example of the summer scene from this Currier and Ives set celebrating the glories of the American countryside. This nostalgia-laden image was judged one of the "New Best Fifty Small Folio" by the American Historical Print Collectors Society in 1991, and is featured in their illustrated book of that title.
