Description:
1836. No binding. Fine. Autograph Letter Signed, to Mary S. Owens, December 13, 1836, 2 pp., 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 in. ""Write back as soon as you get this, and if possible say something that will please me, for really I have not been pleased since I left you.""Here, Lincoln perfectly demonstrates what Owens later described as deficiencies ""in those little links which make up the chain of a woman's happiness."" Rather than expressing his feelings for Owens, Lincoln complains about his health and discusses political issues swirling in the Illinois General Assembly. Although inept at love, the letter offers rare insight into the young representative's thoughts on a variety of political issues. In this highly important letter to Mary Owens, a self-absorbed Lincoln complains to his potential spouse of his health, both physical and mental, and discusses political issues to the point that he describes his own letter as ""dry and stupid."" Perhaps more revealing than he realized, it illustrates the tension in… Read More

02/03/1864. Abraham Lincoln Lincoln donated this famous letter and its message to a Sanitary Fair, while praising the women for the work ""you are so patriotically employing"" to raise funds for his sick and wounded troops An extremely rare written mention of his all-known empathy and concern for the suffering and gallant soldiers of the Union The “Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln” show that Lincoln specifically mentioned “suffering soldiers” just four times during his presidency; this is one of those four mentionsLincoln’s compassion and mercy are central to his legacy, and the picture that has come down to us envisions him as a man who was generous of spirit. From the start of the Civil War, Lincoln felt the weight of the sacrifice that so many families were making for the Union, and he saw that tens and then hundreds of thousands of men – sons, husbands, and brothers – were dying. He was not anxious for any additional lives to be taken. HeThe United States Sanitary… Read More

Description:
21/01/1865. Abraham Lincoln This is the only such document that records show ever having reached the marketBefore the mid-19th century, embalming was not typically used in funerary practice. It was mainly employed to preserve specimens after dissection. But all that changed with the Civil War. On February 20, 1862, Abraham Lincoln’s son Willie lay dying of typhoid fever in the guest bedroom of the White House. At 5 pm that evening, the 11-year-old took his last breath. Overcome with sorrow, the President cried: “My poor boy, he was too good for this earth. God has called him home. I know that he is much better off in heaven, but then we loved him so. It is hard, hard to have him die!” As the President struggled with the shock of Willie’s death, preparations for the funeral commenced. Henry P. Cattell, who later would handle Lincoln’s body after he was assassinated, was hired to embalm the little boy. Thus Lincoln himself, in arrangements for his son’s funeral, was an early adaptor of… Read More

Description:
16/10/1860. Abraham Lincoln He early recognized the telegraph as an invaluable communications tool, and used that knowledge to have it help win his election, and the Civil War that followedAbraham Lincoln was always interested in technology. He displayed a lifelong fascination with mechanical things. William H. Herndon, his law partner, said ""he evinced a decided bent toward machinery or mechanical appliances.” On May 22, 1849, Lincoln received Patent No. 6469 for a device to lift boats over shoals, making him the only U.S. president to hold a patent.The telegraph came into wide use in the late 1840s, and was seen by most as a device to send news. Indeed, news via telegram began to appear in every newspaper worth its salt. But it was not fully understood as an instant electronic messaging technology that could be widely used for a multiplicity of purposes. It was not used a campaign tool in either the presidential elections of 1848, 1852, nor 1856. During this era, federal employees who had to… Read More

Description:
Mammoth albumen print (17 ½ x 22 in), mounted, oval gilt-rule mat. Retouched vignetted enlargement. A few spots, some toning. Very good condition.
This famous "Gettysburg portrait," with Lincoln looking directly into the camera, was made just days before he delivered the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.
A giant of American photography, Alexander Gardner is credited with introducing the large-format Imperial portrait to the United States while working as a staff photographer for Mathew Brady. Gardner left Brady's employ in early 1863, and his studio quickly rivaled Brady's for the quality and extent of its war and portrait photography. Gardner first photographed Lincoln as president-elect while working for Brady, and he went on to take Lincoln's portrait more than any other photographer.
Lincoln sat for Gardner on several occasions, usually visiting his studio on Sunday to avoid crowds. Lincoln sat for this splendid portrait on Sunday, November 8, 1863. His private secretaries… Read More

1864. Rare autograph Oath of December 8 endorsement signed and entirely in the hand of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. One page, signed and inscribed by Lincoln, "Let this boy take the oath of Dec. 8. & be discharged - A. Lincoln April 18, 1864." The Oath of December 8 was announced by Lincoln in his annual message to congress in 1863. In the message, Lincoln declared that he would offer a pardon to any man who would swear, without coercion, his allegiance to the Union. The Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction provided, then, a general pardon to soldiers in the Rebellion, and to those, too, who deserted the Union cause. The oath read, in part, "I do solemnly swear, in presence of Almighty God, that I will henceforth faithfully support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Union of the States thereunder; and that I will, in like manner, abide by and faithfully support all acts of congress passed during the existing rebellion with reference… Read More

Description:
Known as "America's first great photograph collector," this pioneering figure championed the preservation of historical photographs, traveling the country to rescue original glass plate negatives from certain destruction; so little appreciated and understood were they that he occasionally found them tossed aside in barns and sometimes even reused as glass panes in windows. Meserve managed to save countless original negatives created by Mathew B. Brady, Alexander Gardner and other seminal photographers from certain destruction. To the Lincoln images he assigned numbers ("Meserve numbers") still in use today. Meserve produced small format (2" X 3") prints from many of his negatives for a series of small print-run booklets, today highly desirable and sought after. For special occasions and friends he would produce large format prints using the original glass plate negatives. The immediacy of these first-generation prints is startling -- we've grown so accustomed to seeing umpteenth-generation… Read More

Bissell, George Edwin (1839-1920) ABRAHAM LINCOLN "THE EMANCIPATOR;" Bronze Statuette 16-1/2 inches. Signed "George E. Bissell / Sc / Copyright 1898 / Gorham Co." (N.Y.), with the Gorham "stock" number. Produced in the desirable "lost-wax" method of the 19th century. Modeled after his life-sized, commissioned Emancipation Group in Edinburgh, Scotland, dedicated in 1893 (with a replica in Clermont, Iowa c1903). Bissell had served with the 23rd Connecticut Inf. until 1863, when he was appointed an asst. paymaster in the navy. He joined his father's marble business after the war and was put to work on life-sized statues, where he learned his craft. While studying in Europe, he produced this and his famous "Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument" for Waterbury, Ct. This sized-down version shows Bissell's ability to capture the personality of his subjects, and to render them in both a compelling and a delicate fashion. Among his other important public works is the 'Soldiers and Sailors Monument" at… Read More

[Washingto, 1863. 20pp. Original printed wrappers. Light toning. A near fine copy, in wonderful condition. In a cloth chemise and green half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The rare pamphlet printing of Lincoln's December 8, 1863 proclamation, read before Congress the next day, offering amnesty to citizens of the Confederacy providing they take an oath that they "will abide by and faithfully support all proclamations of the President made during the existing rebellion having reference to slaves" (i.e. the Emancipation Proclamation). When the number of persons in any state taking the oath reached ten percent of the number of voters in 1860, this group of loyal voters could form a state government that could be recognized by the President. The Amnesty Proclamation was issued with President Lincoln's third Annual Message to Congress (i.e. State of the Union Address) on December 8, 1863; the State of the Union Address follows the Amnesty Proclamation here. Toward the close of 1863, with the… Read More

Lincoln, Abraham. Alexander Gardner. [Photograph]: Abraham Lincoln at Antietam Battlefield, 1862. Mounted albumen. The albumen itself measures 9" x 6.5" and is affixed to the original mount, trimmed to an overall size of 9.375" x 6.75". Good clarity. Sunning resulting from prior matting and framing. Photograph shows Abraham Lincoln at Antietam, Maryland, on Friday, October 3, 1862. Lincoln's thin, towering figure, accentuated by his hat, makes him the dominant person in this group of Union Army Officers. This photograph of Lincoln at Antietam is one of the best-known images of the Civil War. The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest single-day battle in American history. The Confederate withdrawal was sufficiently heartening for Lincoln to announce his Emancipation Proclamation, which had been withheld awaiting a victory. Two weeks later Lincoln came to the battlefield, to see the troops, and to confront George McClellan, who had failed to pursue Lee's army. Soon after the engagement, Alexander… Read More

Description:
New York: New York Tribune, 1860. First edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Lincoln's historic Cooper Union Address, delivered on February 27, 1860 at the Cooper Institute in New York. The speech is largely credited to having launched Lincoln's Presidential bid. In the fall of 1859, James A. Briggs, who served on the lecture committee of the Plymouth Church in Brooklyn, invited presidential candidate hopeful Abraham Lincoln to speak to a New York audience on any subject of his choosing. Lincoln accepted the invitation, choosing to speak of the current political climate in America. William O. Stoddard, an Illinois journalist who worked for President Lincoln during his administration, noted that "No previous effort of his life cost him so much hard work as did that Cooper Institute speech" and that the resulting speech "was a masterly review of the history of the slavery question from the foundation of the government, with a clear, bold, statesmanlike presentation of the then… Read More

Description:
Davenport, Iowa, 1865. Original typographic portrait of Abraham Lincoln composed of his Emancipation Proclamation, issued on January 1, 1863. In near fine condition. Double matted and framed, the entire piece measures 26.5 inches by 19 inches. An exceptional piece, a rare and desirable piece of Americana. Abraham Lincoln issued the The Emancipation Proclamation, or Proclamation 95, on January 1st, 1865. The executive order changed the federal legal status of more than 3.5 million enslaved African Americans from slave to free and made the abolition of slavery an explicit goal of the Union war effort. To ensure emancipation, Lincoln pushed for passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, and insisted that Reconstruction plans for Southern states require abolition in new state constitutions. Congress passed the 13th Amendment by the necessary two-thirds vote on January 31, 1865, and it was ratified by the states on December 6, 1865, ending legal slavery.
