Woodcut scene by Thure de Thulstrup included as a "Supplement to Harper's Weekly, May 11, 1889." Thure de Thulstrup was a Swedish-born illustrator who, after emigrating to America, became one of the leading illustrators for a number of magazines, including three decades of work for Harper's Weekly. Thulstrup primarily illustrated historical military scenes, with this being an excellent example.
Fine, detailed impression. Fragile margins with tears and chips with several archival tape repairs.
