    Six Lincoln's Home Souvenir CDVs. Each carte de visite carries an inscription on the verso indicating purchase at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Spingfield, Illinois by Henry A. Whitney on December 5, 1865. Whitney was mustered out of the 33rd Illinois Infantry as a sergeant at Vicksburg, Mississippi on November 24, 1865 and must have stopped in Springfield while heading home. The most important image here shows the interior of Lincoln's tomb and carries the backmark of Springfield photographer F. W. Ingmire. A second Ingmire product in the group shows the tomb's exterior being guarded by three Federal soldiers. The remaining four cards are reproductions of lithographs and include the following titles: "President Lincoln's First Home in Illinois", "Pres Lincoln and Family", "The Home of President Lincoln - Springfield, Ill." and "George Washington". These lightly toned CDVs have been carefully stored together for over 140 years and remain in very fine condition.

    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.
