by Leslie, Frank; Moat, Louis Shepheard (Editor); Carr, Joseph B. (Introduction)
Engravings by well-known artists throughout. An interesting collection of illustrations, in that they range from mundane wartime considerations such as the butchering of cattle to feed troops, to action-packed battle scenes depicting explosions of shells and clashes of foot soldiers and cavalry. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: "Frank Leslie (1821 – 1880) was an English-born American engraver, illustrator, and publisher of family periodicals. Carter showed a natural bent for art and contributed sketches to the Illustrated London News, signing them as Frank Leslie. These were so cordially welcomed that he gave up commerce and was made superintendent of engraving on that journal. He made himself an expert and inventor in his new work and in 1848 he came to the United States. In 1853 he arrived in New York to engrave woodcuts for P. T. Barnum's short-lived Illustrated News. He began publishing the first of his many illustrated journalistic ventures, Frank Leslie's Ladies' Gazette of Fashion and Fancy Needlework, with good woodcuts by Leslie & Hooper, a partnership which dissolved in 1854. The New York Journal soon followed, with Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper (1855) (called Leslie's Weekly), The Boy's and Girl's Weekly, The Budget of Fun, and many others. Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, which included news as well as fiction, survived until 1922. Illustrations made by Leslie and his artists on the battlefield during the American Civil War are well-regarded for their historical value. He was commissioner to the Paris Exhibition of 1867 and received a prize there for his artistic services." -- Wikipedia
