    Daniel Whiting Powers Lithograph: "Heights of Monterey, from the Saltillo Road Looking Towards the City (From the West)". No. 2 of a series. New York: G. & W. Endicott, 1847. Black & white lithograph, engraved by Frederick Swinton after Whiting. Image size (not including text): 12.5" x 18.4", sheet size: 15.8" x 20.8", and matted to an overall size of 27.5" x 23.25". A series of 6 highlights shown in the view are listed in the bottom margin, including: "1. Independence (or Castle) Hil 2. Lt. Col. Duncan's Light Artillery throwing shells at the routed Mexican Cavalry 3. City of Monterey..." One of a series of five Mexican War views from Whiting's "Army Portfolio". In the Whiting family tradition, the work was limited to no more than 24 sets (quoted by Goodspeed's of Boston: "The Month at Goodspeed's Book Shop", Vol. XXI, nos. 2-3, Nov.-Dec. 1959, p. 43). These views served not only as a primary visual record of the conflict, it was also a fine topographical work that accurately recorded the area during a critical turning point in its history. The engraving is in very good condition, save overall light toning.
