About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Battle of Cerro Gordo by NEBEL, After Carl (1805-1855).

Description:

Hand-coloured lithograph, heightened with gum arabic, printed by Lemercier. A superb image from Kendall's, "The War between the United States and Mexico illustrated?", one of the most important pictorial works relating to the Mexican-American War, the first offensive war fought by the United States. Kendall was America's first great war correspondent, and an ardent proponent of the necessity of America's war with Mexico. When hostilities broke out, he went at once to the Rio Grande where he joined with the Rangers, and later attached himself to the Scott expedition. Kendall's highly detailed account of the war was accompanied by the work of the French artist Carl Nebel, who painted each of the twelve major clashes of the war. Kendall notes in the preface to his work that `Of the twelve illustrations accompanying his work? the greater number were drawn on the spot by the artist. So far as regards the general configuration of the ground, fidelity of the landscape, and correctness of the works and buildings introduced, they may be strictly relied upon? The artist has ever chosen what he deemed the more interesting as well as exciting points of each combat? the greatest care has been taken to avoid inaccuracies.' Cf. Bennett, p. 65; cf. Haferkorn, p. 47; cf. Howes K76; cf. Raines p,132; cf. Sabin 37362; cf. Tyler, Prints of the West p.78. Bookseller Inventory #
