    Abraham Lincoln: Carte-de-Visite Album. 5" x 6" leather & brass photo album containing thirty CDVs of Lincoln, Civil War era politicians and generals. Some of these are engravings or photographs of lithographs & engravings. The from-life images include: Mary Todd Lincoln, Hannibal Hamlin, Stephen Douglas, Charles Sumner, Andrew Johnson, William Seward, Salmon Chase, John Andrew, Gideon Welles, Robert Anderson (purchased at a Sanitary Fair) and Winfield Hancock (circa 1880). There are nine Lincoln CDVs. There is also a from-life CDV of someone who very closely resembles Mary Todd Lincoln with a Wells & Collins of New Haven photographer's credit; however, we cannot verify that the First Lady ever visited that city. Besides the Anderson and Hancock portraits, there are six images of Union generals and naval officers.
