Bound in black leather covers 38x30 with "Virginia, Maryland & The District Of Columbia. G.G.W." stamped in gold. North/South Carolina: Shows shelling of Ft. Hatteras. Stephenson shows an earlier issue (304.5) that does not have Bachmann's name as publisher, nor the phrase "drawn from nature and lith. by John Bachmann." Full color. Bound in black leather covers 38x30 with "North & South Carolina, Part of Georgia. G.G.W." stamped in gold. Florida: Shows entire Florida Peninsula. See Stephenson page 15 for a general discussion of Bachmann's civil war views. In addition to the six panoramas of the seat of war, Bachmann did a view of Richmond (Stephenson 621, illustrated p271), and of the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers (Stephenson 1.5) - which may be similar to the Kentucky - Tennessee Seat of War view, at least in terms of vantage point. Full color. Bound in black leather covers 38x30 with "Florida & Part Of Georgia & Alabama. G.G.W." stamped in gold.
