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.
