Lewis M. Rutherford
Magazine illustration, engraving
Journal of the Franklin Institue, Vol.LXXXVIII, No.526, Third Series. Vol. LVIII, No.4, October, 1869, p.228.
We now, however, give our readers an engraving that, for artistic beauty and delicate finish, excells even this, though on account of its smaller size, and the nature of the full phase, it is not available as a map, or useful for topographical study, as was the other.
This picture was engraved by Messrs. Van Ingen & Snyder, under our inspection, from one of Mr. Rutherford's photographs for Prof. S. H. Peabody, to illustrate his work entitled The Elements of Astronomy, now in course of publication. This is, beyond doubt, the best engraving of its kind ever published, and reflects great credit on the artists who have produced it. If the other illustrations in Prof. Peabody's book equal this one, it will be without a rival in this respect, either in this country or in Europe.
