3 [WEST POINT & FORT PUTNAM] Original Lithograph Print Entitled “WEST POINT & FORT PUTNAM From the East.” Drawn from Nature by E. Whitefield
New York 1846 
This is an original stone lithograph, approximately 10” x 7 1/2” from “North American Scenery Faithfully Delineated in a Series of Illustrative Views. From Original Drawings, Taken on the Spot by E. Whitefield.” This West Point view was in part 2 of seven monthly installments published in 1846, beginning in January; 4 views in each part. The image shows the Academy buildings at West Point, with a double-wheeled steamboat and sailboats on the river, with the North Hudson highlands in the background, and some buildings in the area of Cold Spring. For details on White and his work see “Edwin Whitefield. 19th Century North American Scenery” by B.A. Morton. This West Point print is not listed in Stokes' “Historical American Prints,” nor in the bibliography of views of West Point in “The Centennial of USMA at West Point, New York.” nor in “List of Prints, Books, Manuscripts, Etc., Relating to...Hudson River.” Some very faint and not unpleasing age toning, an attractive and truly rare West Point print.
