Period Paper has obtained an unusual collection of historical black and white prints of the Spanish-American War that were published in 1898 by E.J. Stanley. Following the sinking of the Battleship Maine in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898, the United States declared war on Spain on April 25, 1898. The war ended on December 10, 1898 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris resulting in Spain losing Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Guam and other islands in its overseas empire. Featured are numerous Spanish and American battleships, as well as images of daily life as an American recruit in the late 1800s. This uncommon collection will be of interest to the serious history collector.
