    Abraham Lincoln: Currier & Ives Cartoon. Small folio lithograph [17" x 12" sight] published by Currier & Ives in 1860, titled "Storming the Castle. 'Old Abe' On Guard." Lincoln's three opponents attempt to break in to the White House. Lincoln, dressed in the uniform of a Wide Awake marcher, catches them in the act, thwarting their nefarious scheme. Ghosting along left side, split in the central vertical fold. Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 24.25" x 19.25". One of the better efforts by C & I, featuring all four candidates along with lame duck President Buchanan.
