1880 Magazine of American History Chock Full of Pictures, Maps and Stories on George Washington, The Revolutionary War and Other Interesting Persons and Events

Offered here is six months of the Magazine of American History (July - December 1880) bound in a green cloth binding and full of interesting articles and illustrations. Below I have pictured the entire table of contents and list of illustrations as well as provided some examples of the quality of the illustrations, including a Pawnee Indian chief, Generals George Washington and Horatio Gates, French General Rochambeau and Declaration of Independence Signer George Clymer, and a map of the Revolutionary War Battle of Camden, South Carolina. The major illustrations, like those pictured below, are on heavier stock paper and have nothing on the reverse side.

The book also has a number of maps, both full page maps and double page fold out maps (e.g., picturing the route of the French and American armies on their way from Rhode Island to Yorktown, Virginia for the final major battle of the Revolutionary War.) all of which appear to be in excellent condition.


George Washington and Horatio Gates

French General Rochambeau and Declaration Signer George Clymer

This is an ex-library book but it is in very good condition. There are very few of these bound volumes listed on the internet and none for 1880 and they go as high as $200 a volume (one for 1886). It's a perfect present for the history buff in the family.

Price: $45 SOLD

We have other volumes of this fine history magazine for the late 1870s and 1880s.
