Maker: Harper's Weekly.
Antique black and white print showing the Naval Review that was part of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and Columbia Exhibition. At least twenty other countries were invited to participate in the naval review. Many war ships were sent, as well as replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, sent by Spain. There is an interesting story of the whole Naval Review written by Joseph C. Mosier called The Naval Rendezvous of 1893. This print was a four-page spread published in Harper's Weekly on May 6, 1893 and Harper's took the image from a drawing by Victor Perard. This print has been cleaned and restored, some tears have been repaired and the whole print has been backed in tissue. Very good condition. approx. 12.5 x 42 inches to the print edge (not including the title at bottom). **NOTE- because this map requires extra insurance for shipping, an additional charge will appear on your card after your original purchase. If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.**
