    Description

    Robert E. Lee: Rees Signed Carte-de-Visite [CDV]. An uncommon pose, taken by C. R. Rees in late 1867, when Lee came to Richmond for his son's wedding. It was one of three poses taken at that time. One of these poses which the General did not want published is all but non-existent. He objected to it because "It made him look more like a prosperous Southern planter than a defeated warrior." Gold rule borders, Rees back mark, light soiling and fading to the signature. Paper and linen tape remnants on verso from previous mounting in an album.
    From the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins.
