Cincinnati, [OH]: Times Print, nd [ca.1861-65]. Broadside. 64 x 48 cm. Printed in various sizes and styles of type. Woodcut signed in image by "Frazer & Denis, Cin." This firm of wood engravers and designers had offices in the Gazette Building on Main Street in Cincinnati, according to an 1852 city directory [Williams' Cincinnati Guide & Business Register]. The firm specialized in producing circus posters, newspaper headings, views of buildings, machinery, stores and steamboats. [see: Jeffrey Weidman's "Artists in Ohio, 1787-1900," (Kent State Univ. Press: 2000, p. 224)]. It seems that this preponderance of goods was not enough to keep the people in Olive Green, which has disappeared from the map. Surprisingly bright, clean, and boldly printed copy with a few small closed edge tears. An eye-catching production. Not found in OCLC. Item #63939

Price: $1,250.00
