    Description

    Abraham Lincoln in Postcards An excellent dealer's lot consisting of approximately 650 mostly color postcards (some sepia and black and white real-photo) from 1900 to past mid-century. Examples range from formal portraits of Lincoln to images of sites related to his life and the many statues and memorials erected in his honor. Includes many early twentieth century examples with numerous soft-colored cards from the 1910s to the 1930s and some 1909 centennial pieces. Also includes some brilliant examples of mid-century roadside Americana regaling in tacky splendor, rich in oversaturated hues, and amateur composition. Binder sleeved, ready for a dealer's inventory. Some have been postal used. Numerous duplicates, condition varies as expected, but overall very good, should be viewed.
