Attractive and clean 1860 edition of New York Illustrated News, wiith content and artwork related to the Heenan-Sayers bout of that same era.  That fight for the "world title" was a US vs. England fight, the first of many "fights of the Century."  Heenan outweighed Sayers by nearly 50 pounds, and the fight lasted 2 hours and 27 minutes, a total of 42 rounds, the boxers fighting to a draw, each ultimately being awarded a championship belt.  Also includes a second woodcut, the centerfold from Frank Leslie's newspaper describing the same fight, in FAIR condition with considerable wear.
