Original nineteenth century example of a desirable ("New Best 50") small folio Currier and Ives print, "Midnight Race on the Mississippi". This example measures 10 3/8" by 14 3/8" inside the narrow old frame. It has been subjected to a lot of the mistreatment to which old Curriers are subject: toning, discoloration, and wear in the margins; also, a tear into the image at top right center, another tear from bottom edge through the word "THE"; and most significantly, a long ragged 8" horizontal tear from right edge into the image. Without flaws this print can sell into the upper hundreds or even over $1,000. including other Currier and Ives pieces.
