Capture of Andre. Small mezzotint. Thomas after Stothard.

Capture of Andre. Small mezzotint.

Boston: S. G. Goodrich, 1828. A very unusual engraving, which we locate only at the Library of Congress, showing militiamen John Paulding, Isaac Van Wart, and David Williams apprehending and searching British Major John Andre near Tarrytown, New York. A much more realistic scene than many of this famous occurrence.

After a sketch by Thomas Stothard, and engraved by W.E. Tucker. 4 1/4 x 3 1/2" on paper 6 x 7 3/4". Some fox spotting, mostly on the margins. OCLC: 903195345 records only one copy, at the Library of Congress. Good + overall. Item #26248

Price: $75.00
