First published in 1911, The Pho­to­graphs of Abra­ham Lin­coln was pri­va­te­ly prin­ted by Fre­de­rick Hill Meser­ve (1865–1963), the pree­mi­nent his­to­ri­an of the pho­to­graphs of Abra­ham Lin­coln. It was a ground­brea­king look at the then-known pho­to­graphs of the 16th pre­si­dent of the United Sta­tes, who was the first pre­si­dent to be pho­to­gra­phed while in office.

In the deca­des that fol­lo­wed, Meser­ve made new dis­co­ve­ries and updated the infor­ma­ti­on that was known about each image. He repu­blished an expan­ded edi­ti­on in 1944, col­la­bo­ra­ting with the Lin­coln bio­gra­pher, Carl Sandburg.

This new work, published on the 150th anni­ver­s­a­ry of Lincoln’s death, inclu­des 114 por­traits. Here is Lincoln’s striking face, pho­to­gra­phed over a span of twen­ty years (1846–1865).

Published with the Meser­ve-Kun­hardt Foun­da­ti­on, it reflects not only Meserve’s pionee­ring rese­arch, but the work of the many Lin­coln scho­l­ars that fol­lo­wed in his foots­teps and the work of five gene­ra­ti­ons of Meserve’s fami­ly who advan­ced his scho­l­ar­ship. It is an essen­ti­al collec­tion of the por­traits of Abra­ham Lincoln.
