    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Large Albumen of Second Inauguration. 13.25" x 10" albumen affixed to the original 18.25" x 14.25" mount. O-109, taken by an unknown photographer, possibly Gardner, on March 4, 1865. It depicts President Lincoln delivering his second inaugural address. Some of the dignitaries include Hannibal Hamlin, Andrew Johnson and Chief Justice Chase. Almost directly below the President appears assassination conspirator Lewis Powell (a.k.a. Payne) and, above, in front of the second column on the right, someone who bears a strong resemblance to John Wilkes Booth. A black horizontal mark to the right of Powell is a touch-up to the negative while a few nicks or abrasions in the upper left corner have been touched up. Ostendorf lists seven different variants of this basic image, all of which are rare and desirable. The most recent sale, by a prominent photography dealer, was $14,000. Matted and framed. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
