Civil War sketch book : drawings from the battlefront by Harry L Katz ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In an era before photography could capture the excitement and drama of battle, illustrators known as "Special Artists"--among them such celebrated draftsmen as Winslow Homer and Thomas Nast--created some of the most important, influential and enduring images of the Civil War. Reporting to newspapers like Harper's Weekly and Frank Leslie's Illustrated News, the Specials were prototypes for contemporary combat photographers. They brought a visceral immediacy to the clash, creating rich and nuanced images of soldiers in camp, slaves at work and troops on the move. Often overlooked by historians and scholars, the illustrations span the war and its many theaters, including rarely seen views of Shiloh, Antietam, Vicksburg, and Gettysburg, and the famous stampede of Union soldiers fleeing the rebels at Bull Run. Many of the images have never been researched or published before; the stunning sketches from the Joseph Becker Collection, for example, have only recently been recovered. Marking the 150th anniversary of the fighting, this book gives readers the sense that they are touching history, for the Specials were at the scene. Their illustrations (some stained with blood) represent priceless artifacts from our nation's greatest conflict."--Book jacket

Colorado, mapping the Centennial state through history rare and unusual maps from the Library of Congress by Vincent Virga ( )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a sense, the State of Colorado was born not on August 1, 1876—when President Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting it to the Union as the thirty-eighth state—but on the day this great land was first depicted on a map. Over the centuries, each such map has become yet another precious link not only in the history of the state, but also in the ever evolving “Colorado” as imagined by its residents and, more broadly, by the rest of America. Colorado: Mapping the Centennial State through History provides a fascinating journey into the past of the Centennial State through gloriously detailed maps from the Library of Congress. Edited and with a foreword by renowned photo editor and author Vincent Virga, it also includes compelling historical essays by Colorado writer Stephen Grace. Together, these further weave the visually stunning cartographic record into a drama of settlement and change. Mapping States through History is the first series to assemble—in full color, state-by-state—an in-depth collection of rare, historically significant maps of the cities, states, counties, towns, and events that make up each of America’s fifty states. Produced in collaboration with the Library of Congress, it offers an extraordinary glimpse into the history of the United States through the maps and their narrative captions, as well as Vincent Virga’s foreword and historical essays by local writers. Each map thus becomes a virtual time machine that tells us much about the places we live in today
