Post-Revolutionary War to Civil War
First Edition & First Year of the Famous Newspaper “HARPERS WEEKLY.” VOL. 1 No. 1 Thru VOL. No. 52
1857-Dated, First Edition, VOL 1 No. 1 Thru VOL No. 52, the entire FIRST YEAR of “HARPERS WEEKLY JOURNAL OF CIVILIZATION,” Bound, all 52 ISSUES, New York: Harper & Brother, Publishers, Franklin Square, About Very Fine.
This very rare original run of First Edition newspapers, includes Volume 1 Number 1 through Volume 1 Number 52. They are housed within bound hardcovers, measuring 11.25" x 16.25". Most of these 53 issues are in very good condition. The original hardcovers are worn, detached yet still present, with the leather spine being damaged. The front papers are wrinkled yet intact. Please note that Volume 1 No. 1 has a small 2" x 2" cut missing from page 15, and similarly also Volume 1 No. 9, Volume 1 No. 10, Volume 1 No. 11, Volume 1, No. 14 and Volume 1 No. 21, with each have a similar tiny cutout from a single page.

Volume 1 No. 39 has a column missing from the front page, and there is a column cut out from Volume 1 No. 42 on the third page, likely taken for a scrapbook. Otherwise, with the exception of a few torn pages, most all of these issues are in very good overall condition and sold ‘as is” as such. Regardless, at our top estimate the cost per issue would amount to less than $20 each and represents a sincere value.

A very rare First Edition & Full First Year volume, including the elusive First Printing of Volume 1 Number 1 of the famous and historic American newspaper, “HARPERS WEEKLY.”
