Item Number: D853
Title: The next thing in order
Date: May 23, 1874
Artist: Thomas Nast
Size: Sheet 11"x16"
Comments: Original title page from Harper's Weekly featuring Thomas Nast political cartoon engraving. Beautiful printing quality due to wood engraving technique. This cartoon shows Uncle Sam talking to seated donkey (and the caption says "The portrait of the Secretary of the Treasury is drawn as mildly as possible"). Amazing!
Condition: Fine condition, this is the full untrimmed page with
text on the back, unmatted and unframed. Much nicer and more detailed
than photo suggests (Harpers engravings are difficult to photo for website).
