Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is a late 19th century Stereocard on the Battle of Spotsylvania. It is the typical size of 7” x 3 ½” and was published by William H. Rau of Philadelphia and sold by Griffith and Griffith. It is titled “Battle of Spottsylvania (sic), May 24, 1864” and “Copyrighted 1887, by L. Prang & Co., Boston”.

Louis Prang (March 12, 1824 – September 14, 1909) was an American printer, lithographer and publisher. He is sometimes known as the "father of the American Christmas card”. In June 1886 Prang published a series of prints under the title Prang's War Pictures: Aquarelle Facsimile Prints. These became popular and helped inspire a genre of such prints, particularly the series issued by Kurz and Allison. However, Prang aimed at a more modern and individual treatment, as opposed to the panoramic style of Kurz and Allison, and before them, Currier and Ives.

The battle scene is clear and overall it is in very nice condition. The reverse of the card is blank. (FREE SHIPPING)
