Abraham Lincoln's image

New York - An autographed photo of former United States President Abraham Lincoln sold for $39,100 (pounds 25,400) at Christie's, leading a sale of rare signed photos of some of the most famous politicians, scientists and cultural figures of the past 150 years. Karl Marx, Queen Victoria, Pope Paul VI, Charles Darwin, Benito Mussolini, the Beatles, Claude Monet, Helen Keller and Sigmund Freud were among up to 300 celebrities and historical figures whose signatures were on the block, but composer Gustav Mahler's photo brought the second highest price, $25,300.
