    Robert E. Lee: Large Mounted Albumen of Lee on Traveller.
    19" x 15 1/2" albumen affixed to the original mount, and matted and framed to an overall size of 31 1/4" x 25 1/4". General Lee is proudly pictured sitting on his favorite war-horse Traveller. Taken in the summer of 1866 by A. H. Plecker, assisted by Michael Miley, at Rockbridge Baths near Lexington, Virginia. Blind-stamp of Miley, Lexington, Va. in the lower left corner. The albumen is in superb condition with just a hint of toning in the sky. It has excellent detail and contrast, with light artistic retouching. A popular image, common in smaller formats, but examples from Miley's studio in this large format are indeed rare.
