Description


Extremely rare 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite portrait of Fillmore in a three-quarter-length seated pose, signed in the lower border in black ink, “Millard Fillmore,” and signed again on the reverse, “Millard Fillmore, April 11th 1864.” Published by E. & H. T. Anthony of New York from a Mathew Brady negative. Wrinkles and a toned area to the upper left of the image, and a minor mounting remnant to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Fillmore had served as president from 1850 to 1853, a time when tension over the institution of slavery was high—the Compromise of 1850 saw controversial policies enacted, such as the Fugitive Slave Act and the agreement that the slavery status of the newly admitted Utah and New Mexico would be determined by popular sovereignty. During the Civil War, he denounced secession and agreed that the Union must be maintained by force if necessary, but was very critical of the war policies of President Abraham Lincoln. In postwar years, he supported the Reconstruction policies of President Andrew Johnson. Signed photos of Fillmore are incredibly rare, this being just the third we have offered. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
