TO THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Philadelphia, [PA]: A. Bancroft, 630 Chestnut Street (second story), 1865. Oval albumen photograph of Lincoln, 19 1/2 x 14 1/2 cm., laid down enclosed in an oval border in the center of the original rectangular sheet 50 x 38 cm. Text lines above and below the photo speak to what he gave to the nation, text on the right records significant moments in his time line, and on the left are two of his famous quotations all enclosed in an oval border. A lovely summation of what he had given to a nation in mourning, accompanied by a strong image to remember the physical man. Some tears to the mount not reaching the oval edges, a wrinkle perhaps in mounting on one side, still a striking presentation. Item #64317
