Print from The Port Folio. Philadelphia, 1809-1827. Engravings and aquatints. Octavo; sheet size ca. 5 1/2 x 8 3/4. Very good condition, except as noted.

The Port Folio was a new type of American magazine, "Devoted to Useful Science, the Liberal Arts, Legitimate Criticism, and Polite Literature." It was a product of the new century, appearing first in January 1801. It began as a weekly issue until 1809, when it became monthly until its demise at the end of 1827. As with the many magazines that followed it, The Port Folio included numerous illustrations, views, and portraits. These include views after John James Barralet, Thomas Birch, William Birch, George Strickland, William Strickland, Alexander Wilson and others, and they are some of the earliest views of American and Canadian sites.
