    Description

    Millard Fillmore Signed Carte de Visite. 2.5" x 4", with an E. Anthony imprint on verso, which states the image, was published from a photographic negative from Brady's National Portrait Gallery. A standing portrait of the 13th president, dressed in a dark suit and with his hand resting on a chair back. Signed at the lower margin, "Millard Fillmore March 6, 1862." On verso has been signed in ink, "W F Pollard 1862/B_5 No. 234." Fillmore became president when Zachary Taylor died while in office. His attempts to reach a compromise on the slavery issue made him unpopular with both sides, and he was unable to get the Whig Party's nomination to run for a full term in 1852. A later attempt to be elected president on the Know-Nothing Party ticket also failed. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Lightly toned throughout. The "F" of the signature has been slightly smudged. There is a pencil notation at the top right corner, else good.

    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.
