Rare Original CDV Photograph of Frederick Douglass

CDV -Carte de Visit Photo

DOUGLASS, Frederick. Frederick Douglass. CDV of Frederick Douglass by J.W. Hurn: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. No date. Very rare original CDV photo of Douglass, Clipped corners of mat.  The Library of Congress has no catalog data on this portrait and assigns no date to it. David W. Blight, ed., Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass,  (New York, 1993, p. 146), suggests the photograph was taken shortly after the Civil War; Douglass would have been around 47.  Original images of Douglass are scarce and very desirable.
