Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865), American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th president of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War, its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. He preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the U.S. economy.

Frederick Hill Meserve (1865-1962), 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.

Silver gelatin photograph; printed by Meserve (circa 1916). 2.25 x 3.25 inches. Verso features original Merserve ink stamping credit. "Washington, 1864."

Housed in a paper matte (finished size: 3 x 4.5 inches); may be removed easily, if desired. Face features original notations in graphite written in Meserve's hand.

Also includes a facsimile copy of an original hand-written note (ANS) by Merseve to a young collector, April 25, 1916.
