Curational comment from "Dawn's Early Light: The First 50 Years of American Photography", October 20, 2011 - May 4, 2012, Hirshland Exhibition Gallery in Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University
 
Brady's National Photographic Gallery in Washington used this unique album for its own reference and possibly as a source book from which the public could select and order cartes de visite. The volume contains 480 photographs including Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, Millard Fillmore, Commodore Perry, P.T. Barnum, James Fenimore Cooper, Abner General Doubleday, U. S. Grant, and many other statesmen, generals, authors, and entertainers.
