    More Information: Lot of 10 Steel Engravings of Distinguished American Military Officers From the National Portrait Gallery. From The National Portrait Gallery of Distinguished Americans With Biographical Sketches, in four volumes, Philadelphia: D. Rice & A. N. Hart, 1859. Each plate measures 7.25 inches x 10.5 inches. Each subject portrait is engraved by some of America's finest engravers of the mid-19th century after images held in the National Portrait Gallery. The subjects are military officers of distinction, many whose names have faded into history. The group includes Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, Daniel Morgan, Henry Knox, Philip Schuyler, Nathaniel Greene, Israel Putnam, Edmund Pendleton Gaines, Alexander Macomb, Jonathan Williams, and Benjamin Lincoln. Each portrait features a facsimile of the subject's signature below the portrait. The paper has toned a bit and there is some occasional light foxing at the edges, but by and large the engravings are clean and in very good condition. These portraits, once framed and matted would make an attractive addition to the décor of any home, school, or office.
