L’Illustration, Journal Universel
Fine. Approximately 14-1/2 x 10-1/2. One page with two hand coloured engravings “Les Mines de Bullonia (Californe) - Campement de Mineurs dans la vallee de Bullonia” [The Mines of Bullonia, California - Mining camp in the valley of Bullonia] and “Ouvriers mineurs travaillant aux placers” [Miners digging and panning for gold]. These two engravings are hand coloured and very charming. The accompanying article says “It is not the land, it is the gold -thus exclaimed Francis Drake in the previous century, when he visited California the first time.” In addition there is a chess problem and a rebus to solve! .
