About this Item

Well-known lithograph of the notorious Confederate prison in Richmond, second in infamy only to Georgia's Andersonville Prison. Richmond, VA: Wm. A. Mountcastle, 1882. Ca. 9" X 8". Very good. A clean and handsome example of this famous image of this prison, with six large tents in the middle ground. One soldier stands sentry in the foreground, another stands with arm in a sling and a handful of others, military and civilian, mill about near the tents and along the large brick structure; interestingly, three male civilians stand as a group in the foreground, one of them clutching the hand of a young girl, clearly posing for the photograph upon which this lithograph has been based. A front corner of the building still retains its original large "Libby & Son / Ship Chandlers & Grocers" sign. An attractive and highly detailed image. Housed in a modern (ca. 1970s) single cream matte and a simple ½" wooden frame with non-glare glass (overall dimensions 12" X 11½"). A simple but suitable presentation. Bookseller Inventory # 32544
