1864 California Hunter & Mountain Man Seth Kinman Albumen Cdv Photo Lincoln For Sale

1864 California Hunter & Mountain Man Seth Kinman Albumen Cdv Photo Lincoln

Very Rare, original, 1864, CDV Photograph of Seth Kinman – nationally famous Californian Hunter & Trapper, Western Frontiersman, Indian Fighter, Chair maker, and “friend” of Abraham Lincoln - by Alexander Gardner with Gardner’s Studio backmark.


The Photograph itself measures approx. 2 1/8” by 3 1/8” and is mounted on its original, gilt border, square corner, Card Mount (the mount measures 2 3/8” by 4”). The Image carries an 1864 copyright notice by Seth Kinsman himself and is titled on the card mount below the Photo “Seth Kinsman / California Hunter and Trapper”. The photographer’s mark on the reverse features an image of the U.S. Capitol building with text above and below that reads in part “Alex. Gardner / Photographer to the Army of the Potomac…”.


The Image offered here depicts Kinman in full regalia wearing fringed, buckskin jacket, and bear fur hat holding his famed hunting rifle "Old Cotton Bale" (also known as “Ol’ Cottonblossom”) with its 4 foot long barrel. His hair and beard are long and wild adding to the “look” of this consummate “Mountain Man” of the American West.


Seth Kinman (September 29, 1815 – February 24, 1888) was an early settler of Humboldt County, California, a hunter based in Fort Humboldt, a famous chair maker, and a nationally recognized entertainer. He stood over 6 ft (1.83 m) tall and was known for his hunting prowess and his brutality toward bears and Indians. Kinman claimed to have shot a total of over 800 grizzly bears, and, in a single month, over 50 elk. He was also a hotel keeper, barkeeper, and a musician who performed for President Lincoln on a fiddle made from the skull of a mule.


Known for his publicity seeking, Kinman appeared as a stereotypical mountain man dressed in buckskins on the U.S. east coast and selling cartes de visites of himself and his famous chairs. The chairs were made from elkhorns and grizzly bear skins and given to U.S. Presidents. Presidents so honored include James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, and Rutherford Hayes. He may have had a special relationship with President Lincoln, appearing in at least two of Lincoln's funeral corteges, and claiming to have witnessed Lincoln's assassination.

This rare and original, period, Albumen CDV Photograph of Seth Kinman is in very good condition. The Photograph itself is clean and crisp exhibiting sharp focus and good contrast and tonality but somewhat faded. The Card Mount has some light soiling and a small stain on the reverse. Simply a wonderful and classic Western Americana “Mountain Man” Photograph of likely the most storied California Hunter and trapper of all time.


A very rare and wonderful, 1864 Alexander Gardner Photo of the legendary California Hunter and Trapper Seth Kinman and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!
