Indian Sun Dance--Young Bucks Proving Their Endurance by Self TortureCrying Baby, Child Abuse, Native Americans, Solemn Audience, Sacred Ceremony, Young Warriors Issued 1875, Harper's Weekly A visually appealing antique wood engraved print. It is an original pictorial sheet extracted from a scarce 19th century illustrated popular periodical. Offered for the outstanding modern appeal of the printed image. In Good to Good [or better] condition: displays moderate uniform age toning as typical particularly for images printed on this type of paper during this era. There may be light scattered spotting or foxing, possibly small minor edge repairs on the back with small pieces of archival tape, light edge wear, some waviness to the sheet, light creasing which is not offensive to the eye, etc. Any defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the scanned image. Please examine the scan closely as the picture forms a central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws]. There is text on the back because it was extracted from an illustrated periodical from the 19th century. Great fun to look at both sides. The only way to own this image as an original printed sheet from the 19th century.Harper's Weekly like similar illustrated journals around this time appeared to use a wood pulp paper. This paper is now a bit fragile along the edges, and must be handled carefully. We will ship this print inside an archival plastic sleeve, gently rolled within a sturdy tube. Overall, the image area remains clean and very attractive. Unique and fascinating old printed image entirely worthy of adding to a private album or collection, hanging for display or presenting to someone as a present. Sheet measures c. 16" H x 21 3/4" W. Printed area measures c. 13 1/2" H x 20 1/4" WOriginal fold line as issued.
