Abstract:

Album of carte de visite portraits of political and public figures, probably from the 1860s, most published by E. Anthony or E. and H.T. Anthony, 501 Broadway, New York, from photographic negatives by Mathew B. Brady's studio, Brady's National Portrait Gallery.

Most of the portraits are politicians of the era--governors, and U.S. congressmen and senators, such as Thomas Treadwell Davis, and Sidney T. Holmes, congressmen from New York; George Washington Morgan and Martin Welker, U.S. representatives from Ohio; Thomas Hart Benton, U.S. senator from Missouri; Richard Yates, governor, congressman, and senator from Illinois; John A. Nicholson, U.S. representative from Delaware; Roger A. Pryor, who served as Virginia's representative in both the U.S. and Confederate Congresses; Thomas Corwin, U.S. minister to Mexico, and representative to the Ohio and U.S. legislatures; and Henry Clay, who represented Kentucky in both House and Senate, and served as Secretary of State from 1825 to 1829. Other political figures include Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury under Lincoln; and Thurlow Weed, newspaper publisher, politician, and party boss, instrumental in the nominations of many American presidential candidates, including Abraham Lincoln. Among the historians and literary figures represented are William Hickling Prescott, and John G. Nicolay, private secretary and biographer of Lincoln; the poet James Russell Lowell, and writer Washington Irving. Other portraits include those of Albert Pike, Confederate Army officer and influential Freemason; Samuel Osgood, Unitarian minister, and editor of the influential Transcendental journal "The Western Messenger;" U.S. Supreme Court justice Joseph Story; newspaper publisher and Western politician, Thomas Jefferson Dryer; and Matías Romero, Mexican minister to the U.S., and advisor to Porfirio Díaz. There is also a photograph of Washington Irving's home, Sunnyside, a little stone mansion with stepped gables in Tarrytown, N.Y. Although most of the photographs were published by the E. Anthony or E. and H.T. Anthony firms of New York City, at least one bears label of "Geo. S. Tolman Fancy Goods Warehouse, Boston" pasted over the E. Anthony logo.
