Ninth-Plate Ambrotype - 19th Century Portrait - Embellished Gold Frame
Ninth-Plate Ambrotype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portrait, 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. Featured within an embellished gold frame is a lovely bust-length portrait of a young woman with pink-tinted cheeks and gold- tinted jewelry. In fine condition. JG Autographs
Early 20th Century Mug Shots - Vintage Photography, "Natato Nales"
Early 20th century vintage silver print mug shots. The use of photography in the justice system became prevalent later in the 19th century, as they felt the documentation of physical traits could help predict criminal tendencies. Alphonse Bertillion, a clerk in the Parisian police department developed the mug shot, a format which features a frontal and profile image of the subject. Coupled with a system of identifying facial measurements, this tracking system was adopted by the Chicago Police Department in 1894. Pencil notation on verso reads: "6872 Nales, Natato." From the collection of Police Chief Michael Webb (1950-2009). Webb joined the Vinita Park, Missouri police force in 1974 and served until his death in 2009, during which time he purchased crime artifacts from relatives of criminals and law officers. Boasting more than 8,000 wanted posters, pieces of Webb_Ñés collection have been featured in film and displayed at the National Crime and Punishment Museum in Washington. Measuring approximately 2.75 x 4.75, this photograph is in overall fine condition, with a paperclip imprint at the right edge. JG Autographs
The Lincoln Conspirators - Meserve Collection - Silver Print Photo Group
The Lincoln Conspirators, original silver print photographs from the renowned Frederick Hill Meserve Collection. This 5 item lot features individual photos of John Wilkes Booth (1838-1865), David Herold (1842-1865) and Lewis Thorton Powell (1844-1865), a group photo of the "Execution of the Conspirators, 7 July, 1865, No. 3" and a vintage, original envelope with "The Lincoln Conspirators" written in Meserve's own hand. United States President Abraham Lincoln was shot on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, as the American Civil War was drawing to a close. The assassination occurred five days after the commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, General Robert E. Lee, surrendered to Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant and the Union Army of the Potomac. Lincoln was the first American president to be assassinated, though an unsuccessful attempt had been made on Andrew Jackson 30 years before in 1835. The assassination of Lincoln was planned and carried out by the well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth, as part of a larger conspiracy in a bid to revive the Confederate cause. Booth's co-conspirators were Lewis Powell and David Herold, who were assigned to kill Secretary of State William H. Seward, and George Atzerodt who was to kill Vice President Andrew Johnson. By simultaneously eliminating the top three people in the administration, Booth and his co-conspirators hoped to sever the continuity of the United States government. Lincoln was shot while watching the play Our American Cousin with his wife Mary Todd Lincoln at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C.. He died early the next morning. The rest of the conspirators' plot failed; Powell only managed to wound Seward, while Atzerodt, Johnson's would-be assassin, lost his nerve and fled Washington. 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, each first generation photograph is printed from the original negative, measuring approximately 3 x 4.25 inches. The verso of each of the three portraits features a stamp: "From Negative In The Possession of F. H. Meserve, 265 Edgecombe Ave., New York, N.Y." as well as an identification written in pencil in an unknown hand. JG Autographs
