Uncommon original 3.75 x 5.25 cabinet portrait of President Abraham Lincoln reproduced by Moses P. Rice from an original wet plate negative by Alexander Gardner, an acclaimed Civil War photographer and one-time protege of Mathew Brady. Taken by Gardner in mid-November 1864, the bust-length portrait depicts the sitting president in spectacular detail, with lower right corner bearing Rice's 1891 copyright mark. The photo is affixed to a slightly larger cardstock mount. In fine condition. Moses P. Rice copyrighted the original Gardner negative of Lincoln, known as the 'Gettysburg' portrait, on October 29, 1891.
