NOTE: Harper’s Magazine was first created in June 1850, by the book publishing firm Harper & Brothers. The first press run of 7,500 copies sold out immediately, and within six months circulation had reached 50,000. The earliest issues consisted largely of material that had already been published in England and soon after, the magazine began printing the the work of American artists and writers. One of those artists was Edward Penfield the designer of this poster. His signature varies throughout time and can be seen here printed in the plate at the bottom right of the poster. Featured for the month of October is this hunting with rifle theme with two rabbits. The hunter is reading Harper`s of course and ignoring his rabbit as game! A condition, very beautiful and ready to be framed! An uncommon original piece. We only have this one.
Size: 11 × 15 inches
