    Robert E. Lee and Joseph Johnston: Carte-de-Visite by Ryan of Savannah. Rare carte showing Johnston and Lee seated together at a small table with Lee gesturing to Johnston to look at a document placed between them. Made for the use of the Ladies Memorial Society of Savannah and taken in April, 1870. Titled at the top of the image, around the oval, "Respectfully dedicated to the Ladies Memorial Association Gels. R. E. Lee and J. E. Johnston." Credit and back mark of D. J. Ryan of Savannah. Some flyspecks concentrated along left side, some glue and paper remnants on verso from previous mounting. Nice clarity and tone. Another view being sold in this sale has an inkwell placed on the table.
    From the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins.
