HE half-tone reproductions in this catalogue but 
poorly represent the original Portrait Etchings 



and Mezzotint Engravings that the publisher desires to 
call attention to. 

The best ability of our American etchers and pure 
mezzotint engravers has been employed in these fine 
productions, and their high standard of quality should 
commend these portraits to every collector and lover of 
a beautiful art. 

Editions are strictly limited to two hundred and 
fifty artist proofs (excepting the portrait of Abraham 
Lincoln), all plates destroyed upon the edition being 
completed. 

CHARLES BARMORE, 

10 Wall Street, New York. 

Telephone, Cortlandt 1626. 



"Nothing finer published in this country. 

"A remarkable collection of fine portraits. 

"The list of plates issued by Charles Barmore embraces many 
important statesmen, jurists and soldiers, and should have a per- 
manent value. 

"They are good examples of straightforward adequate tech- 
nique, having received sympathetic artistic treatment at the hands 
of Mr. Barmore's etchers and engravers." 

New York Tribune. 



"How difficult it has always been to obtain reliable portraits 
of eminent Americans. Poor ones abound, and small ones are not 
suitable for library, office or large rooms, but Mr. Barmore has 
done a creditable service to the public in his fine art reproductions 
of almost life-size portrait etchings and pure mezzotints of dis- 
tinguished lawyers, statesmen and heroes." 

Chicago Evening Post. 



"When a publisher takes the trouble to search for the most 
authentic portraits extant, and then this portrait is etched by some 
master of the burin, a real service has been rendered the public. 
This is what Charles Barmore is doing in his reliable portraits of 
illustrious men." 

Chicago Times -Herald, 



THE FINEST PORTRAIT PUBLISHED

LETTERS OF COMMENDATION 
TO PUBLISHER. 



MR. CHARLES BARMORE, New York: 

I desire to express my high appreciation of the artistic excellence 
found in the etchings of Abraham Lincoln and Gen. Grant published 
by you. There are no pictures in my library I value more. 

wm. Mckinley, 

{President United States.) 

I congratulate you upon the likeness and the superior artistic 
merit found in your portrait of the great Chief Justice, John Marshall. 

MELVILLE W. FULLER, 
{Chief Justice U. S. Stipreme Court.) 



The portrait of Chancellor Kent certainly pleases me, as I am 
giving assurance by ordering more copies at fifteen dollars each. 

MARY KENT STONE, 
{Only surviving daughter of Chancellor Kent.) 



The new portrait you publish of my father, etched by Thos. 
Johnson, I am very glad to have. It is an artistic reproduction of 
one of the two portraits of him which I value most highly. 

ROBERT T. LINCOLN, 

{Ex- Minister to England.) 

The portrait etching of John Marshall you publish is the best 
portrait I have ever seen of him, and am especially glad to get it. 

RUSSELL OF KILLOWEN, 

{Lord Chief Justice of England.) 



I was very glad to get the splendid portrait etching of Gen. Grant 
you publish, and will give it an honored place in my library. 

BENJ. HARRISON, 

{Ex -President U. S.) 

Your portraits of Hamilton and Lincoln are superb. The like- 
ness of Lincoln is most pleasing, the workmanship masterly. Both 
shall have an honored place in my library. 

T. JEFFERSON COOLIDGE, 

{Ex- Minister to France.) 

31 



The beautiful portrait etching you publish of my father, Gen. 
U. S. Grant, I have shown to my mother and sister. We agree that 
it is a perfect likeness as my father appeared in 1867, and an excellent 
etching. 

FREDERICK D. GRANT, 

{Brig. -Gen. U. S. Volunteers.') 



The excellence in your portrait etching of Mr. Lincoln I take 
pleasure in testifying as the best likeness of him that I have ever seen. 

THOMAS T. ECKERT, 
{President W. U. Telegraph Co.) 



The portrait etchings of Daniel Webster and Henry Clay from 
Charles Barmore are works which any admirer of either lawyer may 
take pleasure in owning. — Chicago Evening Post. 



You have every reason to be proud of your portrait etchings. 
The Lincoln is new, and therefore most welcome. 

PAUL LEICESTER FORD. 



The incomparable portraits you publish of Lincoln, Grant, 
Sherman and Sheridan I prize not only for their faithful portraiture, 
but their artistic excellence, and I feel you have done the country a 
patriotic service. 

E. B. SHERMAN. 



The portrait of Ambassador Choate does justice to the original, 
and is artistic. That of Webster shows modelling of the noble hero 
with breadth and force, and Henry Clay is finished in execution, 
well modelled and full of animation. All are good examples, straight- 
forward, substantial and vitalized. — New York Tribune. 



The Clay is an interesting presentment, revealing the magnetism 
and oratorical capacity of the great Kentuckian. Webster shows the 
spirit and vitality, and is impressive. — New York Evening Post. 



The proof etchings of Gen. Grant and Gen. Sherman I regard 
not only as faithful portraits, but admirable works of art, expressing 
the minds and character; clear and good likenesses. Your portrait 
of Lincoln is not only a good likeness, but a very creditable work of art. 

JOHN SHERMAN, 

{Ex-Secretary of State.)
