ITEM DESCRIPTION

John S. Mosby, Very rare and desired early original, vintage, albumen photograph, cdv, taken from-life of Confederate Colonel John Singleton Mosby by the photographer Tanner and Van Ness, Lynchburg, Virginia. It is almost imposable to find any from-life images of Mosby, let alone one with southern back-marks. This is the only from-life image of Mosby we have handled in the past 14 years!! This photograph is guaranteed to be 135 years old and from the original wet-plate collodion glass negative now lost and probably destroyed.
