    D. P. Whiting Lithograph: "Monterey, As seen from a house-top in the main Plaza, (to the west.) October, 1846." New York: G. & W. Endicott, 1847. Colored lithograph engraved "On Stone by Chas. Fenderich." Image size (not including text): 18.25" x 12.5"; sheet size: 24" x 19". This view is one of in a series of five plates based on Whiting's Army Portfolio ("No. 1" is printed in the lower right corner); Whiting had more, but they were later lost in the Mississippi River. Daniel Powers Whiting (1808-1892) graduated in 1832 from the U.S. Military Academy, where he received his training as a topographical artist. During the Mexican War, he served under General Zachary Taylor and was promoted to major for gallantry in the battles of Fort Brown, Monterey, Vera Cruz, and Cerro Gordo. Foxing, with slightly uneven toning around the borders. Very good. Ex Ben E. Pingenot.
