    Group of Eight Photographs of Maj. Gen. Nathaniel Prentice Banks. Six Civil War period CDVs, a circa 1880 cabinet view and a 5" x 7 ¼" oval albumen circa 1868. Cartes with various backmarks including Brady / Anthony, Black & Case, Case & Getchell and E. Jacobs. All in fine condition and several rare views. Cabinet card by Warren / Boston, mint condition. Oval albumen, in the original gilt frame, very good with even fading. Banks was a general of considerable stature but only mediocre ability. Nevertheless he was unquestionably one of the major historical figures of the American Civil War. Nice grouping.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
