    Description

    Robert E. Lee: Unique Presentation/Format of "Floppy Tie" Portrait. Albumen portrait of Lee by Vannerson, mounted to a repurposed piece of card stock with truncated inscriptions on verso, titled on the lower border "R. E. Lee - Gen'l." It has the same dimensions of a CDV but, unlike other examples, it is in the original rectangular format, not trimmed to an oval or vignetted. This example shows more of his lower torso than most other examples. That, along with the clarity of the image and salvaging of the paper used for the mount, suggests it may be a first generation copy.
    From the collection of Dr. Donald Hopkins.

    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.
