Mormondom - A Fresh Supply of Wives - Going Out To The Settlements

New York: Harper's Weekly, January 30, 1875. Single trimmed news sheet [26.5 cm x 36 cm] with wood engraving. Very good. Unrelated text to reverse. Item #2976

"As interest in Utah, California, and other parts of the West mounted, Harper's commissioned two French artists, Paul Frenzeny and Jules Tavernier, to make detailed sketches of a transcontinental expedition beginning in 1873. Their woodcuts can be found sprinkled throughout the pages of Harper's from 1873-75, long after the completion of their assignment. Resembling Joseph Becker's earlier work for their competitor in terms of neutrality of tone, the illustrations were not nearly as callous as the accompanying text." - pp. 41-42 'The Mormon Graphic Image, 1834-1914.'.
