Presidents Book 1901 White House Gallery Of Official Portraits Of The Presidents For Sale
Presidents Book 1901 White House Gallery of Official Portraits of the Presidents
The White House Gallery of Official portraits of the Presidents. Issued by Gravure Company of America, dated 1901. There are 24 portrait plates. Each presidential portrait from Washington to McKinley has name and years served printed on a protective tissue. The facsimile of the president's signature is at the foot of each plate.
The book is burgundy leather with green cloth and cover has gilt piping and title. A burgundy ribbon is at the front and a presidential seal in gilt. The cover boards are detached and rubbed and the edges of the pges are rough/ragged. A little trim with scissors along the edge would do wonders..but I dare not. The bookplate of the Gravure Company on the front shows it as number 369, and allocated to Alexander W. Hurlinger in August of 1902. The pages are approximately 16"" x 20".
I have seen pages from the book sold individually for framing. One very desired plate included in the book is an original engraving of an etching by F. B. Carpenter. I have seen it listed online for $320 and saw where it sold at Cowan's sale for $180.00....just ONE of the plates in the book! It measures 20" x 16" including the border. The image area measures 11" x 8 1/2" but does not include his signature which is below the image. It was issued in 1901 by the Gravure Company of America. Notes in the corner state "From life by F. B. Carpenter 1864", with engraver's note to right. Copyright by Carpenter in 1886 in the Southern District of New York. It has Abraham's facsimile signature below the image. Also included is an engraving that was with this print, of the Gettysburg Address.
I have not seen this book offered anywhere in any condition at a beginning offer price as low as this. It is a big, heavy book, weighing 14 pounds. I can ship it to you by Media Rate, which saves you money, but it is slower shipping. If you prefer UPS (Fed EX), please select that method of shipping at check-out.
