    Description

    Robert E. Lee: Unpublished, Boldly Signed Carte-de-Visite [CDV]. Vignetted bust of Lee, looking directly into the camera wearing a double-breasted frock coat and vest, taken during the Fall/Winter of 1865-1866 by Isaac N. White and Joseph Kelly. White & Kelly took one outdoor view of Lee atop Traveller and two indoor shots. Cancelled 2-cent revenue stamp on verso, inscribed "White & Kelley". It was held and treasured by the same Virginia family from 1866 until 2013, when sold at auction. It descended in the Alexander Family of the "Riverside" plantation in Stuart's Draft, Augusta County, Virginia and was found snugly secured inside a copy of "General Lee: Great Commander Series" by Fitzhugh Lee from the Alexander library. Sharp corners, exemplary in all respects.
    From the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins.
