Abraham Lincoln, Albumen Photograph O-26 by Alexander Hesler
A True Collector’s Prize!
This Abraham Lincoln, Oval Bust Photograph, O-26 was taken on June 3, 1860, by Alexander Hesler.
Perhaps the finest tonality and clarity we’ve seen in this photograph, of which we’ve handled many.
Penciled prior framing instruction on verso, which also bears water markings that in no way mar the recto image.
