ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Engraving, unsigned. B/w, 8x10¼ overall, image 4¼x5 (one surface). Smaller engraving, b/w, 1¾x1, titled "Cabinet Council" and facsimile signature beneath image. Engraved by J.C. Mc Rae. Virtue & Yorston, Publishers, 12 Dey Street, New York. As 16th U.S. President (1861-1865), Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) led the Union through the Civil War and issued the Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863) that freed the slaves in the South. A frontier attorney and member of the Illinois State House of Representatives (1834-1841), Lincoln served as a U.S. Congressman from Illinois (1847-1849) and ran for the U.S. Senate in 1858. Although he lost that race, his debates with Stephen A. Douglas received national attention, and Lincoln won the Republican nomination for president - and the election - in 1860. Reelected in 1864, Lincoln was shot by disgruntled actor John Wilkes Booth in Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. on April 14, 1865 and died the following morning. Lightly soiled at blank margins. Stained at upper right blank margin. History For Sale watermark not present on original. Overall, fine condition.
