At the turn of the century, our 52nd U.S. Congress produced a tome called A Compilation of the Messages and Papers of the Presidents. The photo-gravures therein of Washington and Jefferson were then published as prints by the Gravure Company of American. As such, each of these examples has a reverse-side label reading, "1901 Photo-Gravure 'The White House Gallery of Official Port's of Presidents,'" and the frame backing bears the respective lengthy essay that appeared below each president's image in the aforementioned Compilation. Visible dimensions are approximately 9 x 13-3/4" and rate apparent NM within matching 16-1/4" x 20-1/4" matted-and-framed presentations (minor frame wear).
