Rare John Wilkes Booth Carte View


Item No. CV39675 Category


Seldom seen carte view of John Wilkes Booth. This is in fact the very first and only example of this view that I have seen. An actor by trade, he strikes this thespian inspired pose here.  This view shows Booth from the back with hand resting on the hip as he turns slightly to the left while pulling a handkerchief from his breast pocket. While this view is not back marked it is known to have been taken sometime in 1863 by C.D. Fredericks of New York. Some slight wear to the corners as it appears to have been pinned up at one time. Hard to find view!
