Muybridge - Ca.1873 Modoc War Stereoview - Warm Springs Apache W/ Sharps Carbine For Sale
Ca.1872-1873 Stereoview from "The Modoc War" series illustrated by Muybridge and published by Bradley & Rulofson, San Francisco, California. The view number is 1627 and the title (which is inaccurate) reads: "A Modoc Warrior on the War Path." This scene actually shows one of the Warm Springs Apache scouts who were working with the U.S. Army against the Modocs. This scout is equipped with what I believe is a lever action Sharps Rifle. He also wears a fully-loaded cartridge belt and carries a large Bowie-type knife in a leather scabbard that is attached to his belt. His shoes appear to be leather Army brogans. Please note that this stereo has a crease right in the middle, between the prints. The crease looks worse that what it is, in my opinion. The card mountis very stable and stiff and not weak or floppy. This is one of the classic and more desirable views from this series. The prints are strongand haveexcellent tones, contrast and3-D depth. Guaranteed Original. See three scans for details.
