Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great early Civil War albumen image of "The Defenders of Our Union". This is a fine Mounted Composite Albumen image that measures 10 inches by 6-1/2 inches with the cardstock it is applied to is 13 inches by 9 inches overall. Below the image it is printed "The Defenders Of Our Union." and has the list of the names of the leaders pictured. You can tell quickly that this one is early because of the young looking Lincoln as well as the image they call Grant is the early misprint. It has the marking that states it was published in 1862 by C. F. May of New York. The key below identifies 42 leaders, including President Lincoln. There is some chipping, toning, abrasions and loss to the mount but it still displays quite well. The last image shows the albumen beside a CDV image so you can get an idea of how large this piece is. This is a fine looking piece that will frame up beautifully!
