It introduced readers to the tickets of the four parties contesting the 1860 presidential race, with Buttre engravings of each; Lincoln's was taken from Brady's Cooper Union photograph. In the rear of the pamphlet, Buttre advertised a variety of his other political prints and pamphlets, including campaign ribbons and his 34-inch full-length engraving of Lincoln.
