1862 Civil War Cdv Photo From "brady's Album Gallery" By Mathew Brady #1 For Sale

Very rare, original, 1862, Card Mount, Albumen, Civil War, CDV Photograph of fortified Artillery Battery emplacements on the York River, Virginia from the Mathew Brady series of CDV Views titled "Brady's Album Gallery".


This fantastic, Card Mount CDV Photograph measures approx. 3 3/8” x 2 1/8” and is mounted on its original card mount (overall card size 4" x 2 1/2"). The Image has an affixed label on the reverse with printed title that reads " Brady's Album Gallery / No. 364 / View of Battery No. 1, / at Farnhold's House, York River, Mounting 5 100-pounds, and 1 200-pound Rifled Guns.". Printed on the card mount, below the Photograph is a 1862 copyright notice by Mathew Brady.


This outstanding albumen image depicts the heavily fortified Artillery battery placement from which the Union forces were to bombard the Confederate fortifications and landing at Yorktown, Virginia.


In April of 1862 fifteen numbered Union heavy siege batteries and four lettered redoubts (A - D) were built south and southeast of Yorktown on and around the old American/French works in April 1862. Only Battery No. 1, located on the south bank of the mouth of Wormley Creek, with its massive 200 pound, rifled Parrott gun (plus 5 100 pound Parrott guns) was ever fired before the Confederates abandoned the town in May 1862. Battery Number 1 was, at the time, the heaviest siege batter ever mounted - the massive 200 pound gun (see at the left center of this Photo) and 5 100 pound guns could rain down 700 pounds of shells on enemy positions at a single shot!!!


This very rare and outstanding, Mathew Brady, Civil War Albumen Photo from "Brady's Album Gallery" series is in very good condition. The Photo itself is very attractive exhibiting sharp focus, strong contrast and a rich, warm tonality. Both the Image and the card mount are generally clean and crisp except for a small spot of foxing at the upper left hand corner of the Image. The lower corners of the card mount are very slightly clipped.


A very rare, 1862, Mathew Brady, Civil War Albumen Photograph of a the heaviest Union Artillery Battery of the time from "Brady's Album Gallery" series and a fantastic addition to any collection!!
