Mary Lincoln Signed CDV Circa Early 1860's
Item Details
Description
Mary Todd Lincoln (December 13, 1818 – July 16, 1882), signed cabinet card in black ink. Signature and paper have toned and aged over the years. Mary Todd Lincoln married politician and lawyer Abraham Lincoln on November 4, 1842. When the Civil War began, Mary's family supported the South, but she remained a fervent Unionist. After her husband's assassination, Mary fell into a deep depression and her surviving son, Robert Todd Lincoln, had her temporarily committed. In 1876, Mary regained control over her property after a court found her to be of sound mind. She feared that her son might try again to institutionalize her again and chose to live abroad. In 1881, Lincoln returned to the United States, choosing to live with her sister Elizabeth in Springfield, Illinois. She died of a stroke there on July 16, 1882, at the age of 63. The carte de visite abbreviated CDV, was a type of small photograph which was patented in Paris by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri in 1854, although first used by Louis Dodero. Each photograph was the size of a visiting card, and such photograph cards were commonly traded among friends and visitors in the 1860s. Albums for the collection and display of cards became a common fixture in Victorian parlors. The immense popularity of these card photographs led to the publication and collection of photographs of prominent persons. Comes with a Letter of Authentication from Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (GFA), along with the GFA guarantee of authenticity.
