ORIGINAL 1862 ABRAHAM LINCOLN CDV PHOTO By MATHEW BRADY INKWELL O-58 Picture(s) and Description:
Exceptionally Rare, original and beautiful, CDV Photograph of President Abraham Lincoln by Mathew Brady taken at his National Portrait Gallery in April of 1862. This beautiful image is one a few portraits taken of Lincoln approximately one year after the similar series of images known as the "Inkwell Portraits" - this much rarer Image is designated as "O-58" by Ostendorff. Ostendorff list 2 varients as O-58A and O-58B - they are the same Image but each is cropped slightly differently along the left hand edge - in fact, the CDV offered here does not correspond to either O-58A or O-58B as the Image offered here is actually cropped almost perfectly in-between the two varients identified by Ostendorff - we may actually have a third varient of O-58 here as this CDV carries the Brady Backmark was was issued by the original photographer in this format. The Photograph itself measures approx. 2 3/16” by 3 5/16” and is mounted on its original, gold border, square corner, CDV Card Mount (overall size of card is 2 3/8” x 4”). The rear of the card mount carries the mark of Mathew Brady's National Portrait Gallery. The Image offered here features a full figure, seated view of Abraham Lincoln - serious and stoic. An inkwell and inkstand is clearly visible on the studio table at which the President sits along with a sheet of paper and a paneled side inkbottle. The backmark reads: "Brady's National Photographic Portrait Galleries / Broadway & Tenth Street, New York / & No. 352 Pennsylvania Av. Washington, D.C.". This image was taken in April of 1862 and although it is similar in in content to the "Inkwell" Photos taken a year earlier, this Image is MUCH rarer than any of the 5, Inkwell Images. This CDV by Mathew Brady was taken in April 1862 and shows a serious President seated and facing 3/4 left. It is a much scarcer view than the “inkwell” portraits taken a year earlier, reflected in sale prices over the past 10 years of between $1800 and $2600.
