  • DESCRIPTION: Very scarce lithograph drawn by Edouard de Montule in 1816, the year he traveled the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers by steamboat. In 1821 his American sketches were published, along with some others, in the atlas to Montule's "Voyage en Amerique en Italie en Sicile et en Egypte fait pendant les Annees 1816...". Charming and sketchily drawn, this lithograph provides a firsthand, fascinating image of America before 1820.
