Grouping of four football-related woodcuts from Harper's Weekly.  Collection includes the following:  1) August 31, 1861: Image of the First Maryland regiment playing football before the evening parade near WInchester, VA.  Excellent condition save for light pencil in the upper-right corner, trimmed to 15" x 10 1/2".  2) 1891: Image of a variety of players from Princeton and Yale, combination of woodcut images and photos.  Matted to a finished size of 20" x 13", while we cannot inspect the edges due to the matte, the image area itself is in outstanding condition.  3) 1893:  Intercollegiate football championship between Yanke and Princeton at Manhattan Field, excellent condition though the matte prevents us from inspecting the edges.  Matted to 20" x 13".  4) Decepmber 7, 1889: Princeton-Yale football match at the Berkeley Oval - Good condition with several edge tears, several repairs of the fold (on the reverse) with clear tape.  Still, a strong appearance, an outstanding display.  Four woodcuts total.
