In the late 1800s many publications were produces depicting scenes of the United States
and the world along with glimpses of art from the famous museums of the world..
The majority of the population did not travel and relied upon these publications
to see what the rest of America and the world really looked like. They became familiar with
the famous paintings in Europe's museums from the pictures they saw in these publications.
Photography was developed in the mid 19th century and still in its infancy,
printing processes were developed to reproduce these original photographs
in publication for the world to see what people, places and the great art masterpieces
really looked like. Some of this wonderful historical record has survived for us to study and enjoy today.
We are offering a collection of Steel Engravings which appeared in one of these publication, in 1864.

This is your opportunity to own and preserve a piece of history
This engraving is over 100 years old, it is not a modern reproduction.


John E. Wool was born at Newburgh, Orange County, about 1784. Young Wool, was barely 4, when his father died. He was then taken to his grandfather's home. At age 12 he was placed in a merchant's store in Troy, NY where he continued till eighteen, when he opened a book and stationary store on his own account. He was driven from this by a fire and took up law and pursued the study for more than a year with avidity, in the office of John Russell, an eminent practitioner of Troy, NY. In the spring of 1812, on the eve of the declaration of war, with Great Britain, he received his appointment as captain in the Thirteenth regiment of the United States Infantry. He immediately set to work recruiting his company, joined his regiment at Greenbush, NY and in September, proceeded with the regiment to the Niagara frontier. He was in time for General Van Rensselaer's famous attempt upon the heights of Queenstown. Captain Wool was in the ranks of Colonel Chrystie, which was the portion of the regulars to cross the river in the first assault. Due in part to an accident to the boat that Lt. Colonel Chrystie was in, Captain John E. Wool was thrown the command of the regulars. In the storming of the heights, Wool was wounded, being shot through both thighs, yet in this condition he led one of the boldest movements of the day. In 1816 Colonel Wool was made an army inspector, the office being enlarged in 1821 to that of inspector general. In 1836 he was involved in the removal of the Charokee Indians to their new home at Arkansas. In 1838 he was engaged in a military reconnaissance in Maine, because of a boundary dispute with Great Britain. In 1841 he was commissioned Brigadier General in the line. The Mexican War called him into the field. In addition to his military duties, General Wool is known to the public as a prominent member of the Democratic Party. In 1850 he delivered the address at Weybridge, Vermont, on the occasion of the completion of a monument to Silas Wright.


Engraving
An engraving is an intaglio process of printing, where the design to be produced is cut
below the surface of the plate (made of steel, copper or wood), and the incised lines are
filled with ink that is then transferred to paper.
Our U. S. currency is a very good example of the engraving process.
