Very nice clean image of the Comte-De-Paris standing by a barely visible column. He wears a dark frock coat with clear Captain of staff shoulder straps, matching dark trousers and knee-high boots with spurs. At his waist is his sash and sword belt with a Model 1860 cavalry saber with leather sword knot. One hand rests on the hilt of his saber while the other is at his side holding a forage cap with the proper staff insignia on the front of a “U.S.” within a wreath.

Image is very clear with excellent contrast. Bottom of mount has a period pencil inscription of “COMPTE. DE. PARIS.”

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for E. ANTHONY FROM A BRADY NEGATIVE. There is also another inscription at top that reads “CAMTE DE PARIS.”

Louis-Philippe-Albert d'Orléans, also known as Comte-de-Paris (Count of Paris) was the grandson of Louis Philippe I, King of the French. He was a claimant to the French throne from 1848 until his death in 1894. An historian, journalist and outspoken democrat, Philippe volunteered to serve as a Union Army officer during the Civil War along with his younger brother, Prince Robert, Duke of Chartres. He was appointed as an assistant adjutant general with the rank of captain on 24 September 1861 and served under the name of Philippe d'Orléans, the Count of Paris. He served on the staff of Major General George McClellan, for nearly a year and distinguished himself during the unsuccessful Peninsular Campaign. He resigned from the Union Army, along with his brother, on 15 July 1862. Philippe authored a history of the Civil War that is considered by many as a standard reference work on the subject.  [JP]
