About this Item

53pp extract, printed in double columns, illustrated with 67 characteristic Harper's engravings, one internal page-only in photocopy, salvaged from damaged issues of Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Volume XVI, Nos. 94 - 95, March and April, 1858, and Volume XVII, No. 97, June, 1858. The author, F. N. Otis, M. D., writing under the pseudonym Oran, was a surgeon in the U. S. Mail Steamship Company, and would a few years later write, ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE PANAMA RAILROAD, NY: Harper & Brothers, 1861. The present item predates the book and includes the author's voyage through the Caribbean aboard the steamship U. S. M. Illinois. Places include Jamaica, Panama, Cuba, Watling's Island, Port Royal, Kingston, Bermuda Mountain, Aspinwall, or Colon, and Porto Bello. Illustrations include a portrait of the captain, various scenes on board, gulf weed, a school of porpoises, the southern end of Watling's Island, a view of Cape Maysi on the eastern end of Cuba, a water spout, coal carriers, ships coaling at Jamaica, a portrait of Colonel Harrison, various native fruits, the parade ground, flying fish, the wharf at Aspinwall, the cross at Porto Bello, a view of the Agency, various flora and fauna including a vampire bat, a train station, the Mingillo, San Blas Indians, a scene of the landing of the pirates and the capture of Porto Bello, the beach, Columbus' Spring, the schoolmaster with students, Fort Triana, and ruins of a church.
