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. These are some of the earliest images of North American views available to the general public and they are quite scarce today.
Very Good. Item #3584
