TIPTON STEREOVIEW OF THE COPSE OF TREES AT GETTYSBURG

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1032-32

Gettysburg battlefield stereoview by William Tipton, captioned “No. 547 The famous Copse of Trees, showing Fire Zouave Monument and Round Top.”  Photographs appear to be taken from the vicinity of the Bryan Farm looking south.  Details are good, with a section of linear staining or foxing along the seam between the two photos.  Big Round Top is clearly visible in the background.  The backside of the stereoview is unmarked and is in excellent condition.  The edges show some fine wear but the cardstock is otherwise excellent with no bowing.

Tipton was a native of Gettysburg who started as a wartime apprentice photographer of Charles and Isaac Tyson.   He was a prolific and famed producer of photographs from Civil War battlefields and his stereoviews were especially popular in the 1880s.  [JC]
