Note that Jesse was not left-handed, but the original ambrotype was a reversed image. Period ink identification reads "Jesse W. James at age 19. In uniform of Guerillas." Light overall surface soiling with several brown stain marks in the lower central area of the photo. Minor corner wear to the mount. One of the best of Jesse James photo images, and quite rare in this large form. 4.25" x 6.25".

    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.
