    Seven Multi-Views of Generals Cartes de Visite. Consisting of three Union examples and four Confederate, this lot features the popular "multi-view" variety of cartes de visite. The Union examples are of two types; the first is a large montage of statesmen and generals. Featuring George Washington in center, surrounded by Civil War era leaders. The second is two versions of a Ulysses S. Grant and officers multi-view. One has a dark background and the other a lighter background. The darker example focuses on the Army of the Potomac and its officers, whereas the lighter version offers different generals. The Confederate pieces are divisible into two similar groups. The first is a large montage of Confederate generals, much like the first Union piece, except the center of this example is Jefferson Davis. The other three are also multi-views of generals, however, in two of the three, Jefferson Davis is the centerpiece, not Robert E. Lee. All are in very fine condition; light overall toning on all; none have been trimmed; very clean and dark saturation on all; pencil and ink notations on versos and rectos of several. A nice, clean lot for this popular CDV variety.

    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.
