DescriptionFrank James: A Rare Cabinet Photo of Frank at Age Forty-Nine. On the mount of a St. Louis photographer, it was copyrighted in 1898. However, Harry Hoffman has written on verso: "Latest picture of Frank James...age 49. Property of Harry Hoffman". This statement might be confusing, in that Frank James was 49 in 1892, not 1898. Most likely what Hoffman meant was that no formal photograph of Frank had been taken since that one, but this particular printing of the image occurred in 1898. The photo itself is in excellent condition, while the mount displays moderate soiling and wear, and has several fine tack holes. 4.75" x 7".
