This set of Harper’s Weekly were reissued for the 100th Anniversary of this magazine. This set includes 26 issues. Mixed months from 1863. You will receive January 5 issues, February 4 issues, May 5 issues, June 4 issues, November 4 issues and December 4 issues. Purchased at a lovely estate sale in Denver. Unfortunately, the liquidator sold these by the month instead of the year. That is why they are mixed months. They are in great condition for their age. There is some yellowing around rims and a really light center surface fold. There are a few tiny flaws that are commensurate with age but, nothing major. They have a paper punch were they were displayed in a book. Fun collectable for reading, framing, education or gift giving. The magazine measures 17 inches long and 11-1/2 inches wide.
Harper's Weekly, A Journal of Civilization was an American political magazine based in New York City. Published by Harper & Brothers from 1857 until 1916, it featured foreign and domestic news, fiction, essays on many subjects, and humor, alongside illustrations. It carried extensive coverage of the American Civil War, including many illustrations of events from the war. During its most influential period, it was the forum of the political cartoonist Thomas Nast. In 1857, the company began publishing Harper's Weekly in New York City. By 1860 the circulation of the Weekly had reached 200,000. Illustrations were an important part of the Weekly's content, and it developed a reputation for using some of the most renowned illustrators of the time, notably Winslow Homer, Granville Perkins and Livingston Hopkins.
