Mr. Lincoln's contemporaries : an album of portraits by Mathew B. Brady by Roy Meredith( Book )

10 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The men and women whose portraits make up this book were approximately contemporaries. They represent a respectable cross-section of American life in all its phases between the years 1850 and 1865. The careers of some of them intertwined and reacted one upon another-sometimes they were opposed in debate on the floor of Congress, or across the conference table-but there is only one common thread that binds them all. They sat for these portraits to the great American photographer, Mathew B. Brady. He is the real author of this book. Brady has been called 'the photographer of an era,' and properly so, for consciously, and with an eye to business, he made photographic portraits which bore his signature a mark of social arrival. The fact that Mathew Brady sought you out to take your picture meant that you were news. You could be notorious, or interesting, or famous. You need not necessarily be good and great. And so, if many of the good and great of the era in which Abraham Lincoln grew to prominence are not represented in this book, the reader must blame Mr. Brady's failure of moral vision, rather than the author's."--Introduction

The world of Mathew Brady : portraits of the Civil War period by Roy Meredith( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1988 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book Description: The people whose portraits appear in this book were Brady's contempories. They represent a small, if select, cross-section of American life as it was in the mid-1800s. It was an era of stress and of power. The careers of these people intertwined, one reacting upon another, in the newspapers, on the stage, in the pulpit, on the battlefield, in the halls of Congress. Here is Brady's world, and it is the world of our heritage

[The American Civil War : a pictorial history through the photographs of Mathew B. Brady. Compilation]( Visual )

1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"'The American Civil War' gives a complete picture of the Civil War, including its battles and political and civilian activities. Using authentic Brady photographs, the series allows the viewer to see what actually happened, rather than someone's recollection or re-creation. It dramatically demonstrates that American history is an exciting and fitting subject for television programming ... without altering that history in any way."--1959 Peabody Digest
