[New York: R. Shugg & Co. Publishers, circa [1872].. [1872].. Very good. - sc A superb 10 inch high by 8-3/4 inch wide chromolithograph from "Little Charley's Visit: What He Saw in Central Park", depicting the young boy Charley, seated on a camel handled by a colorfully dressed Zouave in full attire and turbaned headdress. Two young girls are seen in the background rolling a hoop in front of one of Central Park's lovely stone overpasses. There are some minor tears to the left margin and stab marks to the right edge, none of which affects the image. This lovely print is handsomely mounted, with glue along the edges of the verso, into a handsome brick red mat.

This print is from an exceedingly rare book. It was probably from the series "The Juvenile Classics from the Rutherford Park Press".
