    Description

    Robert E. Lee: Rare 1863 Carte-de-Visite [CDV] by Minnis & Cowell. 2.25" x 4.125" glazed paper mount with applied salt print portrait of Lee ... the "buttoned coat" taken in-the-field image. Rounded corners. Embossed credit of Minnis & Cowell dated 1863. Some highlighting of silver hairs to the beard. Very few examples of this photograph, especially in this format, exist. The Minnis & Cowell embossed credit is hardly ever seen and qualifies as extremely rare. Good condition.
    From the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins.
