Maker: Harper's Weekly.

Black & white illustration from Harper's Weekly, 1884, showing two views of burnt areas of forest, one on the road to Indian Lake, the other on Ragged Mountain, near the Schroon River; reflecting the reckless overuse and over-timbering of the region, often resulting in fires, and a fledgling conservation awareness in the accompanying copy of the original article. Drawn by Julian Rix. Very good condition, measures approx. 14.5 x 9.25 inches.
