#274. Columbus.   6 x 8.6, book plate from etching. "Munger SC -- Published by W.H. & O.H. Morrison-- Columbus (by Persico)" bottom of plate. Gilbert Munger engraved this plate for Morrison's Stranger's Guide for Washington City: Illustrated with Wood and Steel Engravings : Entirely Rewritten and Brought Down to the Present Time, by Robert Mills and W.H. Morrison, published by W.H. & O.H. Morrison, 1868, 65 pages. While Munger worked as an engraver in Washington DC from 1850 to 1867, the four plates in this book (see also #275, #276, #277) are the only examples we have found so far of his engravings done there. The statue is part of the Discovery of America group by Persico that was displayed in front of the east facade of the US Capitol from 1844 to 1958. Image from the web.
