    Twelve George B. McClellan Cartes de Visite. Another fantastic lot of McClellan CDVs is featured here! Twelve excellent quality images of the little general, many of which also feature his wife Ellen. Five images feature George and Ellen standing together or one seated and one standing. This portrayal of Little Mac as a family man and devoted husband certainly added to his popularity during the war years and after. The remaining seven images are portrait shots of McClellan. All of them feature him in his uniform; one even shows him with a long embroidered cape over his officer's frock coat. This is one of the most distinguished images of McClellan this cataloger has come across! A fantastic lot of images all in very fine or better condition. It is rare to find a large group of McClellan photos in this kind of condition. This lot will appeal to political and Civil War collectors alike. Moderate to light toning on many emulsions; pencil notations on verso of several.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
