    Union General Lew Wallace Framed Carte de Visite Taken by Mathew Brady. The image is matted with the visible portion of the CDV measuring 2.25" x 3.75" and the entire piece is framed to an overall size of 7.75" X 10". A brass nameplate beneath the image reads "General Lew Wallace / USA 1827-1905". The image is the work of prolific Civil War photographer Mathew Brady and is by E & H. T. Anthony from the Brady negatives. Fine condition. Wallace is probably best remembered as the author of the best-selling historical novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. This is a handsome display piece for any Civil War CDV collector.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
