    Abraham Lincoln & Son, Thad: Four Cartes de Visite from the Same Photographic Image by Gardiner.
    --The original photographic version, this one issued by John D. Goddeus, San Francisco. Near mint condition but for a slight rise in the photograph as attached to the cardstock.
    --A second photographic version, no maker, captioned "The Last Likeness Taken of the President and his Son Thaddeus". Near mint but for one minor corner imperfection.
    --Two more copy images, both maker unknown, one printed on reverse "President Lincoln, Master Thad. Lincoln". Both excellent or better.
    Approximate sizes 2.5" x 4".

    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.
