Product Description

Hesler, Alexander.  Albumen Photograph of Abraham Lincoln, taken from an original Hesler negative (June, 1860).  Philadelphia: c1880s.  [O-26]  “Copyright / Geo. B. Ayers / Phila” handwritten on verso; Ayers’ blindstamp at both bottom corners of recto.  10” x 7-1/2”.  

Gorgeous!  And nice as they come:   beautiful, deep tonality; detailed and clear; emulsion edges can be seen.

Previous mounting remnants at the very bottom of the mount — off the albumen – could easily be matted out.
