LINCOLN, ABRAHAM--SIGNED PORTRAIT.
Photograph, Signed ("A. Lincoln"), and inscribed, Imperial albumen print, 5 5/16 by 7 3/8 inches, on mount, being a head-and-torso portrait of Lincoln, some faint spots to image, even toning to mount, with some light wear and crease at one corner, but generally very good with a strong signature.

This photograph taken in about 1858 is thought to be by either Roderick M. Cole of Peoria, or Preston Butler of Springfield. The image is most famous for appearing on numerous campaign ephemera of 1860. This particular photograph is from the descendents of Mary Simonds, a Springfield neighbor of the Lincoln family who is said to have recieved this from Abraham Lincoln in 1860 when she was 9 years old. Five photographs of the Simonds family, including two of Mary Simonds, accompany this lot. O-14.
