RUTHERFURD, LEWIS MORRIS. 1816-1892.
3 views of the Moon, from New York, c.1865-1870, albumen prints mounted, 12¾ x 9½ inches (325 x 245 mm), pencil captions below by the printer Alfred Brothers of Manchester.

A portfolio of three images of the Moon, likely identical to the present examples, was issued by Brothers in around 1870 under the title The Moon | Rutherfurd and Proctor, although those prints had blindstamped credits (cf. Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, item 12962).
