Fortress Monroe [cover title]

(Old Point Comfort, VA: John B. Kimberly [Albertype Co., Brooklyn, N.Y.]), nd [1890s]. Oblong 4to (22 x 29 cm.). 23 captioned views of Fort Monroe mounted on 21 leaves (with a 24th view mounted on the upper cover), rectos only; two of the views are long folding panoramas of the fort and the government dock. Cf. Haynes 6311 for another issue, with 27 mounted views; Virginia holds yet another issue with 25 leaves of plates. This issue apparently not recorded on OCLC (which does locate six copies with 22 views and one copy with 25 leaves of plates). Offset to one leaf from a clipping (no longer present), else very good. Original printed olive wrappers (split at head of spine), with pictorial onlay mounted on upper cover, tied. (#7100). Item #59846
