Description

The color lithograph depicts a seated portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln sits in a chair with a small table to his proper right. On the table sits a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation, and ink well, and books. The image features hues of black, white and blue and is printed on off-white paper. It is probably after a photo by Alexander Gardner (see O-49 through O-53).
