Lot 314: Desirable pairing of 2.5 x 4 carte-de-visite portraits of the infamous assassin and the heroic Union soldier who pursued, shot, and killed him: one showing John Wilkes Booth in a three-quarter-length pose with his hand tucked into his long jacket, published by an anonymous studio; and one showing Boston Corbett's intense visage in a head-and-shoulders portrait, published by the Philadelphia Photographic Co. Trimmed corners to both and a faint crease to the Booth carte-de-visite, otherwise overall fine condition. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 460 Wednesday, 16th September 2015 Estimate: $200-400
