THE OFFICERS OF THE C.S. ARMY & NAVY. PHOTOGRAPHED AND PUBLISHED BY C.F. MAY, 519 8TH AVENUE, NEW YORK.
New York: [1862-1865]. Oblong 7" x 10," on a mount 11" x 13-7/8." Composite albumen photograph of 49 chest-up images. Each Officer is identified with printed key on the mount. Several images, including Robert Lee and Stonewall Jackson are probably from the Mexican War period; they certainly appear younger than in typical photographs from the Civil War. Light fading, the mount has a corner chip and light edge wear. Very Good.
The Library of Congress estimates the date at 1861 to 1867. Raphael Semmes, referred to here as "Capt. Semmes of the 290" ['The Alabama'' was colloquially known as the '290.'], was promoted to Rear Admiral in February 1865, suggesting a pre-February 1865 publication date.
