About this Item

5 pp. Fo. Beautiful image of the Stone Tower of Newport, RI, from 1857. The image shows a number of people dressed fashionably for the period on the surrounding lawn. In the background is what may be an image of the Redwood Library. The cover bears a facsimile of the composer/author's signature. As sheet music, the item is defective, in lacking one sheet, pp. 3/4. The image, however is outstanding, with one of the finest views of the famed Newport stone tower, a construction whose origin has been obscure. Some have proposed early Norse origins, but most likely it is early colonial or late pre-colonial in dating. Studies of this question are on-going. John H. Bufford was a lithographer and publisher of prints. After 4 years in New York, he moved to Boston in 1839, later becoming associated with B. W. Thayer & Co. till 1844, when he started his own firm. He did a rare view of Princeton University and many town views as well as great whaling scenes. His work had an enormous range. Winslow Homer was his apprentice, 1855Ð57. Lacks pp. 3/4. Water Stain on lower partofcover Else Very Good -. Groce and Wallace (for Bufford). Peters, America on Stone, 118Ð27 (for Bufford). Illustrated and decorated lithographed cover. The image is similar to one published by John Collins, again in 1857, in his magnificent “The City and Scenery of Newport, Rhode Island. Illustrations Drawn on Stone” (Thomas Sinclair, printer).
