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 majority of the population did not travel and relied upon these
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
printing processes were developed to reproduce these original photographs
in publication for the world to see what people, places and the great
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.
William Jenkins Worth was born in Hudson, Columbia county,
New York, March 1, 1794. We find him at the age of eighteen, on the breaking
out of the war of 1812, occupied in the service of General Morgan Lewis
as his secretary, and in the spring of the following year accompanying that
officer to the scene of military operations on the Canada frontier with the
rank of lieutenant. General Scott highly praised Captain Worth's services
during the battle of Chippewa and the following battles at Niagara and Lundy's
Lane where he was seriously wounded. In recompense for these distinguished
services, he received the further rank of Major. Major Worth was confined
to his bed and room for a year by his wound, which left him with a lameness
for life. On his recovery he was appointed commandant at West Point. He was
promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1824, received his commission as major
of ordnance in 1832, and in 1835, voted a sword by the legislature of New
York for his ability as an officer and for his personal bravery in the battles
of the late war with Great
Britain. He served as colonel of the 8th regiment of infantry on the Niagara
frontier in 1838 and was then fortunate to bring the Florida war to a termination.
He was the last officer placed in command by the government in that region,
succeeding General Armistead at the head-quarters of the army at Tampa Bay,
on May 31, 1841. His military career continued through the Mexican war where
he was distinguished as a war hero. On May 7, 1849, while still in San Antonio,
he died. His remains were brought to New York, under direction of the corporation
of the city, and temporarily interred in the cemetery at Greenwood, then
they were removed on Evacuation day, November 25th, 1857, with public honors,
to the tomb prepared below the imposing monument to his memory which the
city of New York had erected on one of the most conspicuous sites in the
city, on Madison Square, on a gore of land between Broadway and the Fifth
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.
