HARPER’S WEEKLY DATED OCTOBER 4, 1862 - ANTIETAM

$45.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-2087

Vol.VI.—No. 301. 16 pp. [625-640] 4 columns, numerous stories and cartoons. Cover page features striking full page image of “General McClellan Entering the Town of Frederick, Maryland—The Popular Welcome.” This issue contains much Antietam coverage with many striking visual vignettes, along with commentary on Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation which, in Harper’s Weekly’s view, despite its limiting language, effectively abolished slavery in the U.S. for keeps.

Condition good, with mounting dot marks along left margin, plus slight yellowing and a few scattered spots of foxing.  Some edge chipping along right side, small tear at upper right corner of front page. Front page is nearly separated. An attractive “Antietam” issue. Definitely a collectible. In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.    [ld] [ph:L]
