Homer, Winslow (illus).
10-11- 1873.
Full page wood engraving, in complete issue Harper's Weekly magazine from October 11, 1873, image 9 1/4 x 13 1/2 inches on sheet size 11 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches. This issue was never bound in a volume, but has been sewn together at the spine resulting in four small holes in the centrefold illustration (not affecting the Homer image). Light toning to front cover, supplement unopened. The Homer image is in very good condition. The prominent late 19th century American artist Winslow Homer worked as an illustrator for Harper's Weekly and other illustrated journals from the 1850s to the mid 1870s, his designs being rendered as wood-engravings. This issue also includes Thomas Nast illustrations: "Keeping the Money Where It Will Do Most Good" (cover), "Our Modern Canute At Long Branch" (centerfold), and a cartoon on back cover. Also of interest are two pages of illustrations relating to a stock market panic, "Broad Street During the Panic" (on the verso of which is an article "The Wall Street Panic") and "Scenes in Wall Street During the Panic."
