We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Harper's Weekly lithograph titled NEW ORLEANS IN 1862. THE FEDERAL FLEET AT ANCHOR ON THE RIVER, APRIL 25. COTTON AND SHIPPING BURNING ALONG THE LEVEE. [Civil War bird's-eye view of New Orleans, Louisiana from Mississippi River towards Lake Pontchartrain.] by Harper's Weekly..

Description:

Original Harper's Weekly centerfold illustration from an unknown issue - presumably 1862 but perhaps published some years later. No artist signature; page number of "291" at lower right corner. B/w lithograph image shows bird's-eye view of New Orleans, Louisiana from Mississippi River looking towards Lake Pontchartrain. Composition shows an artistically disproportionate fore-ground of federal gunboats upon an overtly narrow and lesser crescent-shaped river; eastbank levee shows cotton and shipping activity; purposely exaggerated urban forms center on what is now the city's Central Business District and fringe of the Garden District towards the left; the Vieux Carre or French Quarter is at the far right. St. Charles Hotel, Canal Street, and St. Louis Cathedral are some of the most prominent buildings shown in a somewhat axonometric style. Background shows Bayou St. John and the then-undeveloped mid-city progressing to Lake Pontchartrain and the distant north shore. Image dimensions are H 35.75cm x L 51cm (H 14" x L 20") with title caption in thin lower margin; top corners of image are rounded. Litho is unframed but is presented in a shrink-wrapped off-white matte board, complete height: H 50cm x L 65cm (H 19.5" x L 25.5"), slight bumping to board corners with short tear to shrink-wrap on reverse. Matte board may or may not be acid-free. Light browning occurs along image's vertical centerfold but otherwise clean and bright although, please note, that the litho has not been inspected outside of the shrink-wrap. (This is a different image than the Charles Graham drawn-aerial view which appeared in the Harper's issue for December 13, 1884 for that lithograph shows 1880s river traffic with a perspective centered at the French Quarter waterfront.) An attractive 19th century urban view of the great Southern commercial capital. Digital images will be gladly emailed to serious inquirers. Description copyright David Hallinan, Bookseller.
