Cdv Jefferson Davis By Fredricks In Havana Given To Hostess For Sale

Cdv Jefferson Davis By Fredricks In Havana  Given To Hostess

CDV JEFFERSON DAVIS BY FREDRICKS IN HAVANA GIVEN TO HOSTESS

Description :
Vintage, original albumen photograph on CDV of Confederate President Jefferson Davis by the Charles D. Fredricks studio in Havana, Cuba, in 1867. Probably the best known image of Davis was done by Mathew Brady just before the war, and during the war Davis had only one photograph taken, in 1864 by Vannerson & Jones of Richmond. It was this Vannerson image which was copies by Fredricks in Havana when Davis. out on bail, and his wife visited and stayed with an old friend, Mrs. Sarah Greer Brewer, who had settled in Havana after her husband died. And Mrs. Brewer had also played a role in the war. With her considerable wealth from her hotel business she had helped finance the outfitting of blockade runners and she had performed as a Confederate agent carrying messages between Havana and New York. On the verso, in Mrs. Brewer's hand, is a note: "Jefferson Davis presented to Mrs. S. E. Brewer at Havana Cuba at the close of the Civil War." This would indicate that it was Davis who had the Vannerson image copied by Fredricks. Later Davis and his wife traveled to Montreal where the noted photographer William Notman made several new images and Davis later sent one of these inscribed to Mrs. Brewer. In near fine condition.

PLEASE READ: Items will be shipped either by first class or Priority mail, except for books which will be sent via Media Mail. Shipping charges are as close to the actual cost as possible. If paying for more than one item please wait for my invoice (which are always sent out within one or two hours after sales) to prevent multiple shipping charges. Overseas shipping costs will be determined at the end of the sale, but keep in mind that the USPS has eliminated the more inexpensive shipping method. With rare exceptions I ship within one or two days of a sale. A shipping charge is listed with each sale so if there is a question as to that charge please email prior to the close of an sale. ALSO PLEASE NOTE: For all domestic shipments I use printed shipping labels via Paypal and USPS and include delivery confirmation on all such shipments and I always show the cost of shipping on the label. Buyers can always check said shipments by going to "order details" within the listing and then click on the tracking number. AS BUYERS MAY BE AWARE THE SOCALLED DSRs, THE STAR RATING SYSTEM, IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO ALL SELLERS AS IT DETERMINES OUR STANDING WITH . First this reason, I am most grateful to my fine buyers for my current high DSRs in all four categories. Thanks, Larry

I always encourage buyers to ask questions if in doubt about any facet of a listing, and general questions as to vintage photographs are also encouraged and I attempt to answer same as soon as possible.

I also request that buyers notify me within three days as to plans for payment and such payment must be made within ten days unless other arrangements have been made such as advising me that they are waiting to offer on another item. However, I would prefer that buyers not wait to combine such purchases beyond even days. Thanks.
