Clipped Article and Print from Puck Magazine. 2pp, measuring 13.375" x 19.625", [New York], circa 1881. Featuring a detailed, color print entitled "Adding Insult to Injury - Mr. Cyrus Field Gets a Little Advertising Out of Our National Calamity." Multiple articles and editorials on verso.

The group gives an in-depth and intriguing look into the United States' businesses and their financial health, as well as a look at the economic climate of the time. All items are oversized, with varying degrees of toning. Some with flattened folds. The Irish World broadside has heavy chipping at the edges and separations at some of the folds, with paper loss. Colors on the Puck and Judge magazine prints are still very bold.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
