    Robert E. Lee and Traveller Photograph Taken by Photographer Michael Miley. Taken circa 1866-68, 9" x 7", framed under glass to an overall size of 21.5" x 17.5", in burled wood frame, fine condition. It is speculated that this famous image probably marked the beginning of Miley's career as a photographer. It is one of two portraits that resulted from a sitting with Lee in 1866, at Rockbridge Baths, where Miley worked in collaboration with Adam Plecker and is one of only a few known photographs of Lee on Traveller. The image was retouched by Plecker and reissued in several variations. The photograph on offer is an excellent example of this historic image.
