    Description

    Lincoln Assassination: Three Superlative Autographs. 21" x 17" frame with six windows that contain CDVs and autographs of Abraham Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth and Boston Corbett. The Corbett carte appears to be a copy image of a Brady or Gardner CDV with later caption panel affixed below. The Lincoln clipped signature reads: "A. Lincoln March 20, 1862". The Booth signature is a fragment of a legal form dated February 22, 1864. The Corbett autograph piece is an index card reading: "With kind Regards/ Boston Corbett./ Sergt. Co. L. 16th/ N.Y. Cavalry". All signatures are fine examples. The photographs and signatures tell a story without words. Donald Dow designed the frame which was produced by Newcomb Macklin of Chicago. The Booth signature takes "center stage" in this production!
