    Abraham Lincoln: Framed Display of Lincoln and Conspirator Photographs.
    38" x 21.5" shallow shadow box frame with six photographs. The central item is a rare, large-size albumen of Lincoln (a retouched version of O-112, taken by Henry Warren in Washington, D.C. on March 6, 1865). The albumen is 10" x 13", affixed to the 11.5" x 15.5" photographer's mount. It is significantly rarer than the standard version and is titled "The Latest Photograph of President Lincoln". It is accompanied by a group of five, period, retouched, photo enlargements (photo-based wash drawings) of some of the conspirators, based on Gardner images taken at the time of their apprehension and transport aboard the USS Montauk. These include George Atzerodt, Samuel Arnold, Edward Spangler, Michael O'Laughlin and Lewis Payne, all in manacles. These images range in size from 5" x 6.5" to 6.75" x 8". They are the work of Eleazer Hutchinson Miller (1831-1921), the "first internationally known artist living in Washington, D.C." It is believed they were used as the basis for souvenir cartes-de-visite produced at the time.
