Maker: Ballou's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion

Antique black & white engraving print. Shows a view of boats anchored near a bustling pedestrian bridge in the city of Edo, Japan, with Mount Fuji visible in the distance. Published between 1855 and 1859. Gleason's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion was a 19th-century illustrated periodical published in Boston, Massachusetts from 1851–1859. The magazine was founded by Frederick Gleason in 1851. The publication name was changed to Ballou's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion in 1855, after managing editor Maturin Murray Ballou bought out the interest of Gleason. The magazine absorbed the Illustrated News of New York in 1853. It ceased publication in 1859. Fair condition, toned, approximately 15" x 11"
