No. 763, “Pontoon Bridge on North Anna, Below Railroad Bridge, Where Portion of the 2nd Corps under Gen. Hancock, Crossed 23 May, 1864.” This is a good view of the group of soldiers. The bridge may be vaguely seen in the background, or this may be a mis-applied label. No. 765, “Pontoon Bridge, North Anna, Constructed by the 50th N.Y. V. Engineers, Below Railroad Bridge, Where a Portion of the 2nd Corps, Under Gen. Hancock Crossed, 23d May, 1864.”

Brady at Harper’s Ferry, 2 views C. 1862 by Gardner.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Brady at Harper’s Ferry, 2 views C. 1862 by Gardner. The label credits Holms & Woodbury. No. 654, “Harper’s Ferry Gap,” and 644, “Ruins of Harper’s Ferry Arsenal, October, 1862.” Mathew Brady can be seen in both views looking out, recognizable by his clothing and hat. Brady appears in a number of views made by his camera artists. He is present but also not present, because he is not in portrait mode, but as someone who is looking out at the same scene that the camera is seeing. I think he is marking the scene not only as a “document” but also as a product of his vision.

The Philadelphia Photographer

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: The Philadelphia Photographer. It is appropriate to begin the offerings of cabinet cards with issues of this publication, edited by Edward L. Wilson, which was the major source of information about the art and techniques of photography during the cabinet card era, from 1864. Each issue contained advertising, an original tipped in photograph, and many illustrative drawings as well as numerous articles. This lot includes some individual issues as well as a group of bound volumes.The individual issues are June 1874, July 1874, and September 1874. These have some soiling, light water stains, and some edge chipping. The June issue has one paragraph neatly removed. The September issue has more material cut out. The July issue is complete. These have the original covers, advertising, and have their covers still attached. They don’t have any tipped-in photographs. There are bound volumes of the complete issues of 1867 and 1868. The 1867 volume is still bound, but the spine is frayed and torn. The 1868 volume lacks the spine. The contents of both volumes are complete and are not loose. The covers and spines should be replaced. All the original tipped-in photographs are present. (The page with a Notman Photograph is present but loose in the 1868 volume.) As typical of the bound volumes, the advertising pages are missing. Among the photographs are several by Notman and Gurney, as well as John Carbutt, William Bell, and others less well known. There are finely bound complete volumes of 1871, 1872, 1873, 1874 and 1876. The 1872 volume has no original photographs; the other volumes have all of them, with the original tissue guards. There is slight aging but the pages are complete and undamaged. The collector’s page markers with his notes are still present. There are no markings on the pages themselves. The 1873 volume has the portrait of Vogel with his camera that I have seen offered individually, cut from an issue. The 1876 has photographs of the Centennial

A large camera takes our picture.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A large camera takes our picture. Of all the cabinet cards in this sale showing the photographer with his camera, this is the only one that has the camera pointing straight out. It is as though we are the subject, looking at what a subject would see. This is probably a mirror image, rather than one taken by another camera. The photographer is both the maker of the image as well as its subject. We are both the person looking at the cabinet card and the implied person being photographed. This wonderful cabinet card is by Weston and Gilbert, “traveling photographers,” based in Des Moines, Iowa. Often the work of traveling photographers is crude, but this has great sophistication.
