With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors. Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more. So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.
Large Original Encampment Portrait of Richard Pearson, Company K, 6th U.S. Cavalry, Union Army, in the Civil War 1863 NA Very Good Charcoal on paper. Measuring 64 by 53 cm, and with frame, 77 by 63 cm. The portrait is inscribed "taken while on duty at Gen. Pleasanton's headquarters 1863". Adding to the interest is the background of teepee tents and far off, a ship. The artwork has a folk art quality, with non-facial features and clothing rendered loosely, but one senses that the face itself bears a close resemblance to the soldier. Moderate age toning. Scattered foxing.
