A Group of Images of Henry Ward Beecher

By Various

Keene, N. H.: Photographed by S. C. Dustin, 1857. Softcover. Three CDVs (one of them a miniature portrait), n.d. (ca 1850s); approx. 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 ; a few spots ; card stock with occasional minor nicks to edges; overall in very good condition.Three images of Congregationalist clergyman, abolitionist, and brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe - Henry Ward Beecher as a relatively younger man. Unusual, as most original photographs sold at auction seem to be of him at a considerably older age. The most interesting of them is the miniature portrait, in an ornate, embossed card stock frame, by "Salisbury, Bro. & Co." of Providence, RI, known for their beautiful "Carte de Visites of Noted Persons," including Abraham Lincoln, Horace Greeley, and others.
