Lithograph, 1865 : Advertising print for an insurance company, using images of the life and death of Lincoln. Arranged around a large central portrait of Lincoln, two roundels at top depict his home and tomb, while three vignettes at bottom, under the heading “Early life,” show him “Splitting rails,” the “Log cabin built by Mr. Lincoln in Macon Co. Ills. in 1830,” and the young Lincoln “Rafting” down a river.
