Lot 13
[CIVIL WAR] Harper's Weekly. A Journal of Civilization. January 5, 1861-December 30, 1865 (i.e. volumes V-IX)
. New York: Harper's, 1861-1866. Five years bound as ten volumes, publisher's three-quarters leather. 16 x 11 inches (40 x 28 cm); various paginations; wood-engravings throughout, including many after Winslow Homer, including his classic "The Sharpshooter." Generally a sound set, though with some rubbing and soiling to covers; so far as we can determine, complete, but sold as a periodical, not subject to return.
The Civil War years of Harper's Weekly are the single most extensive and compelling contemporaneously published visual record of the War.

Sold for $2,125 (includes buyer's premium)
