    Group Lot of Eight Cartes de Visite of Lincoln Era Statesmen with Signatures A collection of cartes de visite photographs of Simon Cameron, Thaddeus Stevens, Henry Wilson, William P. Fessenden, Edwin M. Stanton, William H. Seward, Hugh McCullough, and Gideon Welles; each displayed in 5" x 6.25" gilt bordered disbound album cards and respectively signed beneath each image. The CDVs are housed back-to-back in four pages, but the card stock is such that it is possible to split so that both sides could be displayed. A few stray foxing spots, and light soiling to the album pages, otherwise near fine condition. Although collections of signed CDVs are not uncommon, instances in which the signatures occur on the album page are unusual; so it is likely that this collection belonged to someone of note.
