Ninth-Plate Ambrotype - Portrait - Vintage Case with Velvet Lining
Ninth-Plate Ambrotype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 2 x 2.5. Developed in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer, ambrotype, or amphitype, hails from the Greek words "immortal" and "impression." These images were impressed on glass through a variant of the wet plate collodion process. They required shorter exposure times than daguerreotypes and were more affordable to manufacture, two factors which contributed to their rise in popularity before the advent of the carte de visite in the early 1860s. Presented in one half of this vintage case is a crisp 19th century half-length portrait of a young woman dressed in traditional period garb and a bow tying her hair back. The image is bordered by an embellished oval gold frame. In very good condition, with the front cover missing and the expected wear to the case. JG Autographs
Abraham Lincoln - 16th President - Meserve Collection - Silver Print Photograph
Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 - April 15, 1865), 16th President of the United States, original silver print photograph from the renowned Frederick Hill Meserve Collection. Lincoln is among the most influential and important of all American Presidents, having led the nation through the Civil War and the abolition of slavery. Frederick Hill Meserve (1865-1962), a New York textile executive and book lover is considered America's first great photograph collector and a premier authority on Linconiania. Today the collection that Meserve started five generations ago constitutes one of the nation's greatest archives of Civil War era and Abraham Lincoln photographs. Printed and compiled by Meserve, this first generation photograph from the original negative, measuring approximately 3 x 4.25 inches is displayed through an approximately 2 x 3.25 inch window cut in a portfolio-style matte measuring approximately 8.5 x 11.5 inches. The photograph is attached to its backings by a single strip of hinged tape, rather than adhered completely; may be removed easily, if desired. The reverse side of the photograph is blank.

Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype - Couple Portrait - Vintage Gold Frame
Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype (1840 - 1855), 19th century portrait, vintage gold frame, 3.25 x 4.25. The daguerreotype photograph, developed in 1839 by Louis Daguerre, was the very process that would make history as the first publicly announced and commercially recognized photographic process. This type of image can be identified by its mirror-like surface of metallic silver. When tilted, the image virtually disappears, as it is imprinted directly onto glass. Featured here is a 19th century half-length portrait of an older couple, seated on a couch, clad in traditional period garb. Image is bordered by a vintage gold frame. In very good condition, with spotting to the image and frame, and some darker discoloration bordering the image. JG Autographs
