    Description

    Abraham Lincoln in Postcards Another large dealer's lot, this consisting of more than 1,000 color postcards (with a few real-photo postcards) from 1900 to the mid 1960s. Subjects range from formal portraits of Lincoln to monuments in Washington, Springfield, and beyond. Other subjects include U.S. presidents, sites in Washington, Chicago, and other locales associated with the 16th president. 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. Some have been postal used. Numerous duplicates, condition varies as expected, but overall very good, should be viewed.

    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.
