GROUP OF TEN LITHOGRAPHED ENVELOPES DEPICTING HOSPITALS FROM THE CIVIL WAR].
New York & Baltimore. [ca. 1862]. - Ten envelopes, each measuring 3 x 5 1/2 inches. Minimal wear and soiling; evidence of mounts on the verso of three of the envelopes. Very good plus. A group of ten Civil War envelopes decorated with full lithographic and stencil color or metallic inks illustrating the major U.S. Army hospitals established in or near Baltimore. Those hospitals illustrated are: Stewart Mansion, Patterson Park Nos. 1 and 3 (one of the largest military installations in Baltimore), and McKim's Mansion. The birds-eye views of the grounds are quite detailed. Three of the pieces have the publication mark of Charles Magnus in New York, while three others were printed by E. Sachse in Baltimore; the remaining four are unidentified. Two of the covers are clearly marked with brush strokes on the extreme margin, thereby revealing the use of stencils for the color and production line techniques. Rare, ephemeral, and interesting.
