This albumen photograph of Abraham Lincoln was taken by Henry Warren in March, 1865. The true first printing; the caption reads “The Latest” after the assassination, the caption was changed to read “The Last.”

Lincoln appears to be annoyed; often attributed to the sun and wind in his face. We believe differently. Warren had used Tad to lure Lincoln into a photograph. A doting parent, that would have certainly bothered Lincoln to the point of not concealing his emotions.

Excellent clarity; a scarce and much sought-after image. Photographed through the glass, much nicer in person.
