Historical Portraits and Lincolniana. Index of a part of the Collection of Americana of Frederick Hill Meserve
New York: privately printed, 1915. 4to. (12 x 9 inches). 10 mounted carte- de-visite size photographs, printed from the original negatives. Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. (A few minor bumps). One of very few copies illustrated with additional mounted photographs printed from the original negatives. This is the separately-issued index volume to Meserve's monumental catalogue of his collection of historical portraits and views. Neither Monaghan nor Howes cite copies of the index volume illustrated with mounted photographs printed from the original negatives in Meserve's collection. However, Monaghan suggests that but 16 copies of Meserve's catalogue were issued with such additions, suggesting a similar limitation to this volume. The photographs comprise portraits of Lincoln, Audubon, Booth, Clay, Grant, Holmes, Lee, Mencken, Parkman, and Webster. Monaghan 2199; Howes M548a.
