    A Phenomenal Collection of 59 Civil War Cartoon Cartes de Visite Unquestionably the finest grouping of these sought-after Cartes de visite which we have ever encountered; At least half of these examples are varieties we have not seen before! We strongly encourage would-be bidders to visit our web site, where each one is shown. But we offer here a brief characterization of this wonderful collection. Subjects: No less than 13 great Lincolns, plus Grant, Jeff Davis (many), Stanton and other cabinet members, Meade, Butler, Fremont, McClellan, JEB Stuart, Greeley, Slavery subjects, Andrew Johnson, Copperhead leaders, Semmes, Burnside, Hooker, Admiral Porter, Nathaniel Banks, William Cullen Bryant and more! Included in the group are numerous Thomas Nast images. Back imprints include: Brady / Anthony - four, Anthony - 12, N. Y. Photographic Co. - seven, J. Hall - three, Wenderworth & Taylor - one, William Shaw - one, J. Edwards - one, J. Guernsey's & Son - one, Williams, Stevens, & Williams - one, Charles Wheeler - one, and blank backs - 27. Condition is superb; most are near- mint or nearly so, and appear to have been put away at the time by a single early 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.
