      (PRINTS--PRESIDENTIAL.) Kaehrle, Gabriel; engraver. Abraham Lincoln, Sixteenth President of the United States. Engraving, 11 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches; dampstaining, minor edge wear. Np, circa 1861?

      Estimate $800 - 1,200

      An unusual and possibly unique Lincoln portrait above patriotic banners and a quote from his first inaugural address. Very little is known about the engraver Gabriel Kaehrle. He is listed in the 1857 New York directory as an engraver, and he illustrated books which were published in New York in 1860 and 1862. A lithograph of this same Lincoln image retaining Kaehrle's signature was used in a jugate 1864 campaign illustration published by Lloyd. None in OCLC and no other examples traced.
