About this Item

[New York: Harper & Brothers], 9 July 1864. Folio (11" X 15½", opens to 22" X 15½"). Large steel engraving surrounded by twelve small steel-engraved vignettes. Very good. Faint original vertical fold; single small (¼" X ½") paper loss near top of this fold, not affecting image (but touching upon the "Harper's Weekly" running head). Overall clean, attractive -- quite fetching. Centerfold two-page spread (pp. 441-442) of this famed weekly. Large center steel engraving (14 3/4" X 9") titled within the plate "A Council of War / at Massaponax Church" is based on the famed Alexander Gardner photograph showing Grant and Meade's staffs seated in a group of scattered church pews, Grant examining a map. Twelve small military vignettes surround this, titled (clockwise from top) "Constructing a Military Road," "Burying the Dead," "Jericho's Mill and Pontoon Bridge N. Anna R.," "Braddock's Coach, Guinness Station, VA.," "Dead Rebel Soldier, Pine Forrest 19. May," "Bethel Church," "One of Ewell's Soldiers," "Beverly House," "Confederate Soldiers Laid Out for Burial," "Soldiers in Rifle Pits Near Chesterfield Bridge N.A. Rives," "Quarles Mill, N. Anna R." and "Rebel Redoubt on the North Anna." A striking rendition of this famed war image. Bookseller Inventory # 33261
