76. Buisseret, David. “Printed Maps of the Chicago Portage.” Vol. 12, no. 1 (Spring 1987), 25-27.

The author provides an interesting survey of maps depicting the portage around the Chicago River from 1733 to 1853 and notes the enjoyment to be derived from collecting narrowly on one geographic area or feature.

77. Neely, Mark E., Jr, Harold Holzer, and Gabor S. Borritt. “The Confederate Image: Prints of the Lost Cause.” Vol. 12, no. 1 (Spring 1987), 2-12.

This article discusses the few images published in the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. The authors point out that Adalbert Volck’s prints were actually issued from Union territory and discuss some fallacies inherent in those prints. Several of the Appomattox prints are analyzed as are portraits of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and other military figures.
