Robert E. Lee - Full-length Portrait - Lithograph, Hawkins, Cornelius
4 Hawkins, Cornelius Robert E. Lee - Full-length Portrait - Lithograph
Unlisted Publisher 1901 Print Very Good 
Circa 1901. Full-length portrait lithograph of Robert E. Lee from formal painting by Cornelius Hawkins commissioned by the Tennessee General Assembly in 1901. Hawkins' painting, in turn, appears to have been based upon Lee's first formal portrait photograph as a Confederate General Officer (by Minnis and Cowell in 1863) which was used as a cover illustration for the 2 July 1864 issue of Harper's weekly. 'Signed' Cornelius Hawkins, 1901 in the lower left corner. The print is affixed to a mat measuring approximately 20.5" x 25.5". The mat has some minor edgewear. Hawkins' painting has been reproduced in oil on canvas by painters up to the present time (who have continued to sign them 'Cornelius Hawkins' rather than using their own names). These reproduction paintings realize prices of up to $1500 when they come to auction. Will be shipped rolled; flat shipping is available but it will cost extra.

The Last Meeting of Lee and Jackson - Lithograph, Julio, E. B. D.
6 Julio, E. B. D. The Last Meeting of Lee and Jackson - Lithograph
Unlisted Publisher 1877 Print Very Good 
Circa 1877. An early colored lithograph of Julio's famous painting of the last meeting of Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson on the Chancellorsville battlefield. Approximately 17" x 21". Below the image there is facsimile handwriting that reads, "By Julio" and "The Last Meeting of Lee and Jackson". Pencil annotations on the reverse including what appears to be an 1877 year date. Faint and hard to see printing crease about 5" from the top. Lightly dusted. After Julio finished his famous painting in 1869, he offered it as a presentation to General Lee in hopes of generating publicity for his artwork. Lee, unfortunately, declined Julio's offer after seeing a flawed and broken photograph of the work. Subsequently, Julio was repeatedly foiled in his attempts to sell the painting through and to a number of galleries and organizations, some of which produced and sold lithographs of it to raise funds. This print, although not the first, is among the early printings. For more information about Julio's work, see The Last Meeting's Lost Cause by Estill Curtis Pennington. Will be shipped rolled; flat shipping is available but will cost extra.

8 Stivers, Don At All Times Ready, U. S. Marines at Harper's Ferry. October 18, 1859 - Print
Waterford, Virginia Stivers, Don 1993 First Edition, Limited Print As New Stivers, Don 
Number 369 of 500. Commissioned by the Marine Corps University Foundation. Print Size is 18" x 25" plus 2" inch margins. It is numbered and signed by Stivers in the lower margin. On 16 October 1859, John Brown led his band of abolitionists in an attack upon the U. S. Arsenal at Harpers Ferry, firmly believing that when he notified local slaves of his success, they would flock to him, draw arms from the arsenal, and begin a bloody and violent revolution. Before attacking the arsenal, Brown's gang kidnapped a number of civilians, including the grandnephew of George Washington, to hold as hostages in case their revolt was unsuccessful. Additionally, they attempted to stop a Baltimore and Ohio train en-route to Washington DC and killed a freed slave in the process. The following day, after Brown's force was discovered by arsenal workers, the local militia and town civilians took up arms to defend the armory. Realizing that his plan was ruined, Brown's force killed the mayor and three other civilians before forcing his hostages into a small railroad engine house and beginning to shoot at locals from the windows. Later that afternoon, after word of the revolt reached Washington, President Buchanan ordered Army Colonel Robert E. Lee to lead a small detachment of Marines to capture the Brown and his gang. Upon his arrival, Lee sent his aide, Lieutenant J. E. B. Stuart, to the engine house to negotiate Brown's surrender while the Marine detachment stood ready to attack. Brown refused, and Stuart signaled to the Marines, who rushed forward with two sledgehammers they hoped would break through the doors. When that proved to be impossible, the Marines found a large wooden ladder which they used as a battering ram to force their way inside. During the skirmish, all of the hostages were safely rescued and all of Brown's force was either killed or captured. This print depicts the Marines using the ladder to break down the engine house door as Lee (in civilian clothes) and Stuart (in his Army uniform) observe from the left. The print is in new, unframed condition. Includes the original protective folder and enclosures.
