Niagara Falls. From a photograph

New York: Charles Magnus, n.d., (ca. 1875?). Approx. 10½" x 8¼", the image being approx. 5" x 8". One small tear in the bottom margin, else a very good example. Charles Magnus was a print publisher, map dealer, bookseller and stationer working in New York City from 1850 to 1899 who issued over a thousand different letter sheets, maps, song sheets, envelopes, and separate prints. His best known works were city views and Civil War related material. Much of his work was copied from other printmakers. He often altered or combined design elements from several sources, rarely crediting the original artist. Many of his works after 1865 were based on photographs, which he often altered, drawing in figures or re-drawing lines for clearer reproduction (Winterthur website). Item #49303
