    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Magnus Civil War Victory Poster. Circa 1864 hand-colored poster by Charles Magnus measuring 18" x 21", entitled "After A Little While." The title and poster relate to the string of Union victories and the statement by General Grant the "The end is not far distant." An upright, mounted Lincoln appears above, while a slumped-over mounted Jeff Davis appears below, on a much smaller scale. Clasped hands and a banner inscribed "Union Henceforth Now and Forever" are design elements, along with draped American flags all against a billowy, starry field. Lincoln supporters from all walks of life exclaim: "All is right now! Hurrah!" Northern and Southern fanatics are led off to jail or the hangman's noose, where "They won't do any more mischief." Magnus produced colorful song sheets and stationery during the war, but this is their most outstanding work, the Magnum Magnus Opus! We have only seen a few copies appear at auction. This example is evenly toned. It has two, tight horizontal tears in the mid-section and has been backed with Japanese rice paper for conservation and support. It presents quite nicely.
