Most famous of all Homer Civil War prints...
Item # 664311
November 15, 1862
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, November 15, 1862
* Winslow Homer
Although there are many fine prints in this issue certainly the most desired would be the full page Winslow Homer print titled: "The Army of the Potomac--A Sharp-Shooter on Picket Duty." The image is in very nice condition, however note that the caption & a portion of the bottom margin have a light tape stain.
Other nice prints in this issue include the full front page captioned: "Convalescent Soldiers Passing Through Washington to Join Their Regiments" in front of the Capitol, showing the new dome still under construction (a notable print!). Also a fullpg: "The Army of the Potomac--'Little Mac' Making His Rounds"; a three-quarter page: "Map of the Seat of War In Virginia"; a very dramatic doublepage centerfold: "The War For the Union--Surprise of Rebel Guerrillas by a Squadron of United States Cavalry."; fullpg: "Destruction of a Rebel Salt Factory on the Coast of Florida..."; a halfpg. print of: "Summit Station on Maryland Heights" and a one-third pg: "The Rebel Steamer 'Oveto' running the Blockade of Mobile...".
The back page has a political cartoon: "The Pirate 'Alabama' ". Sixteen pages, very nice condition save for the print caption mentioned above.
