1865 ABRAHAM LINCOLN ASSASSINATION STEREOVIEW PHOTO CHAIR IN WHICH LINCOLN SHOT Picture(s) and Description:
Wonderful and very rare, 1865 Abraham Lincoln Assassination Stereoview by Mathew Brady from his series of War Views featuring a haunting image of the rocking chair in which President Lincoln sat when John Wilkes Booth murdered him at Ford’s Theater on April 14th, 1865. The view is titled on the obverse "War Views / 3404. The Chair that President Lincoln occupied at the time of his assassination at Ford’s Theater. / No. 3406". The Stereoview is from “The War For the Union” Series taken by Brady Photographers. The Stereoview offered here, was printed from Brady’s original negatives and published by E. & H. T. Anthony. This fascinating Stereoview was take just days after the assassination and interestingly, Brady has set the Chair (as style that will likely forever be known as a “Lincoln Rocker”) atop two wooden stools allowing the photographer to picture the entire Chair with interference from the floor. It appears that there is a blood stain on the upholstery at the top of the Chair’s back. This fascinating and historically important view is mounted on an orange card mount with affixed E & H.T. Anthony label on the back on the back which includes a slug that reads “negative by Brady & Co., Washington”. The mount measures approx. 6 7/8" x 3 3/8". This very rare Lincoln Assassination related Stereoview Photograph is in very good condition with sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality. The Images have some very light foxing and a bit of light soiling while the card mount has some soiling and some light edge wear as can be seen in the scans below.
