Unusual Bas-Relief Patented Photograph by F. A. Taber of New York, of William McKinley as President, while the stamped date at rear is difficult to read, either 1896 or 1898, we would assume 1896. 12 x 10 inches overall, signed on the photography studios heavily bevelled mount by William McKinley as President, back of mount has photographer's printed and ink-stamped credit, and dated inscription by prior owner of November 14, 1900. William McKinley (1843-1901), 24th President of the United States, was to be tragically assassinated while in office the very next year, to be succeeded by his Vice President, Theodore Roosevelt. This bas- relief (which means the image is in effect 3D) portrait is extremely unusual, and shows slight wear; the mount is browned, with some white (glue?) stains at left; the verso has some chipping and stains. Taber's bas-relief photography process was first used in 1896, and was proprietary to the company. "The relief is secured in The following way. A print of the subject is made from the negative in the usual way and fastened or mounted upon a flat block of wood very similar to the wooden base of a photo mechanical block Following the features of the mounted print the highlights and prominent features of the subject are then carved out of the wooden block a wooden mould being thus produced the depressions in which correspond to the lights and outlines of the picture The mould is then roughly dressed off so that no sharp edges are left. The prints which are to be embossed or rendered in bas relief taken from the negative made by the photographer in the ordinary manner should preferably be made upon platinotype paper Plain Saxe paper or print out paper such as platino also answers the purpose1 These prints are first mounted cards of medium thickness thoroughly placed on the mould so that they register exactly with the print first to the block when the mould was and left under heavy pressure until dry when the relief obtained by the prints into the depressions the mould will permanently keep its The new pictures so like an ordinary and yet so different are practically a combination of the photograph cameo and must be seen to be appreciated."
