Auction: Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War

Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War is a compilation of 100 photographs of the American Civil War (1861-1865), made by Alexander Gardner and other photographers (Timothy O’Sullivan, John Reekie, David Knox, D.B. Woodbury etc.) in his employ. This two-volume book contained 50 hand-mounted original prints. 

Lot 42 will be auctioned off at a forthcoming Sotheby's photography sale next week with an estimate of US$70-$100,000, details which can be found here.  For me, I'll take the cheaper option and head for the iPad version instead!
