    The Art of War: "Incidents of the War" Albumen Photograph by Gardner.
    8.75" x 7" albumen of five officers leisurely studying some tactical text books in a shady setting. Affixed to the original photographer's titled mount, inscribed "Incidents of the War. Studying the Art of War. Fairfax Court House, June, 1863." It is accompanied by the original explanatory sheet of text which identifies the subjects as Lt. Col. Dickinson, Count Zeppelin, Major Ludlow (who commanded the colored brigade at Dutch Gap), Lt. Rosenkranz and Ulric Dahlgren (standing). Some minor ripples or squiggles in the albumen, seen only at an angle and as-made. Some black spots indicative of a damaged negative. Bold and resonant. Excellent condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
