Abraham Lincoln Inauguration Chromolithograph, Presidents of the United States by Bouclet, 1861
Chromolithograph, 19 x 25 in., titled Presidents of the United States, published by Francis Bouclet, 1861. Framed, 29 x 34 in.
In anticipation for the inauguration of the 16th president of the United States, Bouclet prematurely printed this poster but neglected the fact that Lincoln (at the request of young Grace Bedell) had a beard. The clean-shaven Lincoln proved difficult to sell, making it an especially rare print.
Very good, two minor tears and a minor case of soiling on the top center and top left portion of the paper. Has not been observed outside of the frame.
