(SLAVERY AND ABOLITION.) Lincoln, Abraham. E Pluribus Unum. Emancipation Proclamations . . . Allegorical Portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Engraving, 24 x 17 3/4 inches; 4 chips in margins, professionally repaired. Philadelphia: Art Publishing Association / Swander, Bishop & Co., 1865
An elaborate presentation of both the preliminary and final Emancipation Proclamations, 22 September 1862 and 1 January 1863. The words are formed to create a ghostly portrait of the president. The ornate border is embellished with two vignettes: a plantation whipping and an emancipation scene presided over by a black soldier with his sword held high--a nice reminder that Lincoln did not achieve emancipation by himself. R. Morris Swander was the artist, and P.S. Duval & Sons were the engravers; the work is dedicated to the Union Leagues of the United States. Eberstadt 48.
