Lot Details

Lot 2
BARNARD, GEORGE (1819-1902) [Rebel defenses in front of Atlanta],
1864. Gold-toned albumen print mounted to paper, 11 x 14 3/8 inches (278 x 375 mm), unsigned. Generally good tones, marginal tears and chipping to mount, a few minor surface defects, subject identified in pencil on mount, half-inch marginal tear to one corner, not immediately noticeable and fully affixed to the mount. Framed.
Barnard accompanied General Sherman on his Atlanta Campaign and the present image shows the Confederate defenses around the outside of the city. There are substantial earthworks topped with sandbags, and wooden chevaux-de-frise palisades to encumber the advancing enemy. The buildings beyond are in ruins. This image was issued in Barnard's Photographic views of Sherman's campaign as plate 39, though the present example is not on the printed card mounts of that work, but shows some evidence (a ragged gutter margin to the mount) of having been bound.
Property from an International Corporation.

Estimate: $400 - $600
