  • Views of Niagara Falls
    was a British artilleryman who in 1768 while stationed at Fort Niagara sketched Niagara Falls The sketch only the second known drawing of Niagara made on the spot was sent to London where Richard Wilson England s leading landscape artist painted a large canvas five foot by six foot based on it That image was engraved by William Byrne and published by Wilson in 1774 making it only the second print of Niagara not based on Hennepin s Thomas Davies 1768 engraving was the first but the Pierie Wilson view is a considerably more accurate portrayal We may say in a sense that Niagara art began with Hennepin but in its higher sense it began neither with Hennepin nor Davies but with Pierie Frank H Severance Studies Of The Niagara Frontier Buffalo 1911 p 123 2 800 Isaac Weld Jr From Travels through the states of North America during 1795 1796 and 1797 London John Stockdale 1798 Each ca 6 3 8 x 8 7 8 Engravings With folds as issued Very good condition Attractive and accurate views of Niagara Falls from an early travel account of an eighteenth century visitor to America These images of Niagara were drawn by Isaac Weld during his travels through the United States from 1795 to 1797 So impressed was Weld with this famous site that he had an entire chapter on Niagara Falls which included these three views and map These included the first separate view of the Horseshoe Falls which it is interesting for its accuracy especially compared to many of the other images of Niagara in the eighteenth century View of the Falls of Niagara Impressions of Niagara 22 225 View of the Horse Shoe Fall of Niagara Engraving by Neagle Impressions of Niagara 23 225 View of the lesser Fall of Niagara Engraving by J Scott Impressions of Niagara 24 225 An Eye Sketch of the Falls of Niagara Engraving by Neele Impressions of Niagara 25 125 Drawn by Bonfils finished by Dupare Vue d une partie de la Branche Occidentale de la Cataracte de Niagara From Michel Guillaume Saint Jean de Crèvecoeur s Voyage dans le Haute Pennsylvanie Paris De Crapulet 1801 7 1 8 x 10 Engraving by P F Tardieu Impressions of Niagara 30 Astrongly engraved print of Niagara Falls from Michel Guillaume Crèvecoeur s Voyage Crèvecoeur was a Frenchman who lived and farmed in America in the late eighteenth century In 1801 he issued an account of his peregrinations around the United States which included two views and a map of Niagara Falls The Falls are shown with all the power they had before the building of the power plants from the unusual perspective of along the bank of the lower river below the falls The use of the turbulent water spray and small foreground figures emphasizes the grandeur of the Falls 225 Constantine F Volney View Section of the Fall in the Middle of the Stream and map Course of the St Lawrence at Niagara

  • Views of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington DC
    readers One of its most interesting aspects was the inclusion of engravings Many had a religious or genre theme but others were topographical views of different parts of the United States This magazine had a limited circulation and so these prints are quite a bit more scarce than most engravings of the period Some of the views were based on images by W H Bartlett but others were taken either from some of the large folio views of the period or drawn first hand for The Ladies Repository Whatever the source this is among the most interesting and hard to find American views of the middle of the 19th century 110 N S Bennett Tomb of Washington New York N S Bennett 1859 Chromolithograph by Robertson Schibert Shearman 10 1 2 x 15 1 2 Very good condition An exquisite and large depiction of the grave of George Washington at Mount Vernon Bennett s imprint states that the print is published to help support the Ladies Mount Vernon Association As the Civil War approached George Washington was continually held as a symbol of the Union because he was a Federalist a slave holder a Virginian and a military man who held the civilian president as commander of the armed forces Veneration of George Washington was enhanced by preservation and celebration of his famous home 250 Baltimore Berlin F Silber ca 1860 9 3 4 x 13 1 2 Lithograph Full original color A terrific German print of Baltimore in America from the German popular print publisher F Silber The scene is dramatic but also reminiscent of a view of Istanbul from across the Bosphorus A wonderful cross cultural image 475 After photograph by Stacy View of the Capitol showing the Present State of the Dome Taken during the Inauguration of Lincoln Monday March 4 1861 New York Frank Leslie s Illustrated Newspaper March 16 1861 14 x 8 7 8 Wood engraving A few spots 30 Birdseye View of the City of Washington with the Capitol in the Foreground From Illustrated London News 25 May 1861 13 3 4 x 19 3 4 image with full margins Wood engraving by G eorge H enry Andrews A thin printer s wrinkle runs vertically to the left of the Capitol dome and the Washington Monument A hardly noticeable flaw that is original to the piece Not in Reps Views and Viewmakers but mentioned in his Washington on View p 117 Accompanied by a single page of text p 496 Overall lovely and fascinating This fine wood engraving is the only print that shows much detail of the continuing enlargement of the U S Capitol building at the beginning of the Civil War Cranes and cables are shown around the top of the dome and on the House of Representatives side there is much detail on the scaffolding and the staging yard with workmen handling architectural details This was the scene two months prior to the First Battle of Bull Run Radiating out from Capitol Hill from left to right is Maryland Avenue which was a wide expanse leading to the Long Bridge which eventually was called the Fourteenth Street Bridge This expansive street was soon to accommodate railroads to the south To the right is shown the Smithsonian Institution and the Washington Monument under construction with the Potomac River drawn along the background By this time Tiber Creek was being filled and called A or B Street eventually filling the creek bed and taking the name Constitution Avenue Pennsylvania Avenue angles west to the White House which is obscured by trees however to the right of the avenue is City Hall the Patent Office and U S Post Office Many other buildings can be seen northwest of the Capitol 800 Balloon View of Washington D C From Harper s Weekly New York July 27 1861 Wood engraving Repaired tear in sky Else very good condition Harper s Weekly an illustrated newspaper issued in New York City remains one of the best sources for lively informative images of 19th century America Major artists were employed to do drawings on the spot which were then turned into the affectionate and detailed prints through which so much of the country got its visual information about topical events and activities Here we see a bird s eye or balloon view of Washington from near the Capitol where the new dome is still under construction and the canal to the Potomac remains in place where Constitution Avenue now lies 65 Prints by Charles Magnus New York ca 1860 70 Lithographic transfers from engraved plates Very good condition Bird s eye views of North American cities became popular beginning around the mid nineteenth century These prints were originally issued in a large folio size but publishers such as Charles Magnus soon realized that there was a good market for smaller versions These octavo sized views were issued both as separate prints for framing and as illustrations at the head of sheets of stationary paper These very detailed prints taken from steel engravings are fascinating and quite rare Bird s Eye View of Washington D C from the Capitol and Topographical Map of Virginia between Washington and Manassas Junction 9 x 7 1 2 With original color 275 Washington D C A view of the City of Washington looks to the north featuring the Washington Monument as originally planned by Robert Mills 4 1 2 x 7 1 2 275

in Baltimore was one of the most respected of the latter half of the nineteenth century Known especially for prints of Washington and Baltimore of which they produced over sixty the images of other mid Atlantic places are also very fine This print was drawn lithographed and copyrighted by the firm
