About This Image

There is conflicting date and photographer information on this image with some sources giving the 1864 date and some an 1879 date, although it is more likely the latter date. Some attribute the image to John Burke and others to Bourne and Shepherd. An important and rare image in any case.

Most U.S. domestic Fed Ex ground shipping (Media Mail for books) is free of charge except for larger and heavier items, or unless the buyer wants express shipping (email us your requests for the latter). International shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their local customs duties and taxes, which will be charged by Fed Ex, which will contact the client prior to delivery.
