    Daniel Powers Whiting Lithograph: "Monterey, from Independence Hill in the rear of Bishop's Palace, as it appeared on the 23d. September 1846 (Looking East)". No. 4 in a Series. New York: G. & W. Endicott, 1847. Black & white lithograph, engraved by Frederick Swinton after Whiting. Image size (not including text): 12.5" x 18.4", sheet size: 15.8" x 20.8", and matted to an overall size of 27.5" x 23.25". matted to an overall size of 27.5" x 23.25". Seven highlights included in the view are listed in the bottom margin: "1. 'Sierra Silla' (Saddle Mountain, about 7 Miles distant) 2. Village of 'Gaudaloupe' [sic] 3. Citadel (in possession of the Mexicans, firing upon Genl. Taylor's position on the Eastern side of the City)..." One of a series of five Mexican War views from Whiting's "Army Portfolio". In the Whiting family tradition, the work was limited to no more than 24 sets (quoted by Goodspeed's of Boston: "The Month at Goodspeed's Book Shop", Vol. XXI, nos. 2-3, Nov.-Dec. 1959, p. 43). These views served not only as a primary visual record of the conflict, it was also a fine topographical work that accurately recorded the area during a critical turning point in its history. The engraving is in very good condition, save overall light toning.
