[Broadside] Proclamation of Emancipation. Names of Members of Congress who voted for the resolution to submit to the Legislatures of the several states the amendment to the Constitution of the United States prohibiting slavery forever

Denver, CO: Issued by Halsey M. Rhoads, ca. 1900. Very Good. Item #27986

Denver, CO: Issued by Halsey M. Rhoads, [ca. 1900]. Later printing. Broadside with calligraphic portrait of Abraham Lincoln in which the script of the Emancipation Proclamation forms the image within a decorative frame, surrounded by the names of the members of Congress who voted for the amendment of the U.S. Constitution. 48 x 37 3/4 cm. A few tears to edges with tape mend to verso top edge; folds; minor edge wear; paper residue to verso from previous mount; overall Very Good.

The original design was by W.H. Pratt in 1865 with just portrait and border, and the names to the outside added to later printings. Halsey Rhoads was publisher of the Rocky Mountain Herald and a well known and prominent Denver citizen--even his bout with appendicitis in 1901 (treated with leeches and ice) garnered several writeups in contemporary newspaper accounts.
This broadside scarce in any printing.
