Item Description: [n.p.],, Massachusetts:, 1863. FIRST EDITION. Broadside. 28 x 20 inches. Mounted on cloth, folded in quarters, minor splitting a center fold; light soiling and edgewear with minor chips (without loss of text), very light annotations in ink on verso (visible to recto right margin). Overall an excellent example of this rare and important broadside. First printing of the first proclamation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday. This original broadside produced in Massachusetts is formatted in two halves, the top being Governor John A. Andrew's announcement of Lincoln's Proclamation dated July 27, 1863, and the bottom being Lincoln's actual proclamation dated July 15, 1863, announcing that August 6 shall be set aside as a National Day of Thanksgiving. Though the exact printing date is unknown, it can be assumed that it was printed within the week following July 27.Thanksgiving was observed as a holiday since colonial times and each state would set aside its own day for celebration. This proclamation was the first time that the holiday would be celebrated on a set day nationwide, making it the first observed Thanksgiving as a national holiday.Later the same year, on October 3, 1863, Lincoln made a second proclamation again announcing Thanksgiving as a holiday, but this time in November, a date closer to the time most states had been celebrating it in the past. This earlier proclamation is actually the first time Thanksgiving was given national status, but because the second proclamation was widely accepted, the knowledge of this earlier one has been somewhat forgotten, making this piece a rare and important document in the annals of American history.Though this broadside is for the State of Massachusetts, no other broadsides from any other states announcing this date are known to exist, and only three other copies of this rare document are located through OCLC.

Item Description: Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. in black ink as President, Washington, D.C., December 23, 1863. Six lines plus signature and date, on verso of the integral blank of an Autograph Letter Signed from General John M. Schofield, Washington, D.C., December 23, 1863. 8vo. 2 pages. Fine, fresh example, dark and clean. In his letter, Schofield addresses his commander in chief deferentially: "Mr. President, I desire simply to ask you if I may be absent from Washington a few days pending the settlement of my affairs, I wish to spend Christmas day with my relatives at West Point. If there is any reason for my remaining here of course I do not wish to go." On verso, Lincoln writes: "Not the slightest objection to Gen. Schofield's visiting West Point, so that he be in call by Telegraph." This letter serves as an interesting footnote to the long-simmering problem in Missouri, where Schofield had been in command. A slave state, Missouri had seethed with pro and anti-slavery conflicts, and was terrorized by armed bands of southern sympathizers. Schofield and the provisional governor had engaged in bitter jurisdictional quarrels until all factions finally united to criticize Schofield for his "high-handed" administration and demand his removal. In early December 1863, a congressman who had visited Missouri told Lincoln first hand of Schofield's increasing difficulties, prompting the President on December 11 to telegraph a simple order to Schofield: "Please come see me at once." After his White House interview, Lincoln recommended that Schofield be promoted to major general, transferred, and Rosecrans appointed to take his place. Lincoln's recommendation was quickly approved by the Senate. Schofield (1831-1906), Graduated West Point, 1853. In Missouri at the outbreak of the Civil War, he became chief of staff to Gen. Nathaniel Lyon and served until Lyon¿s death at the battle of Wilson's Creek, August 1861. Promoted brigadier-general of volunteers in November, he was engaged in field operations in Missouri and later commanded the Department of the Missouri as major-general. Assuming command of XXIII Corps in February 1864, he took part in Sherman's Atlanta campaign as one of the three army commanders and badly shattered Hool's confederate force at the fierce battle of Franlklin, Tenn. Moving the XXIII Corps to the mouth of the Cape Fear river, He occupied Wilmington, N.C., and effected a junction with Sherman at Goldsboro, March 23, 1865, for the final moves against Gen. J.E. Johnston. In the spring of 1868 served briefly as U.S. secretary of war. Promoted major-general, regular army, 1869, he commanded several departments successively and made the recommendations that led to the acquisition of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, as a naval base. Superintendent at West Point, 1876-81. Lincoln (1809-65), 16th President of the United States (1861-65) and one of the most important figures in American history. Signed by Author(s).

Item Description: Elephant folio, @16" x 21". 8pp in two sheets. Unbound, printed in six columns per page, minor wear, small printer's flaw [not affecting Lincoln's Address, but a few letters of Everett's speech]. Very Good. "Immortal, one of the Supreme Utterances of the Principles of Democratic Freedom" [Printing and the Mind of Man 351]. The first appearances of the Gettysburg Address in print occurred in the Tribune and several other morning newspapers on November 20, 1863, the day after the ceremony at which Lincoln spoke. Priority is impossible to determine. The Tribune reports the entire proceedings, beginning at the top of column five, including the procession and invocation. Lincoln's Address appears at the bottom of column five and the top of page six. Everett's windy speech follows. Garry Wills's study of the Gettysburg Address discusses its textual variations (pp. 191-204, 261-263) and the surprising difficulty in determining exactly what Lincoln said. As printed here, it differs only slightly from the spoken version delineated by Wills. First, this printing refers to "that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion; the Wills version prints "the cause." Second, the last clause of the last sentence of our printing is: "and that governments of the people, by the people and for the people."; the Wills version prints "and that the government of the people." The Tribune text also differs from Wills's "final text" in a few ways. Though these differences are not major, they nevertheless illuminate Lincoln's uncanny ability to dramatize the power and immediacy of the experience: The Tribune's first sentence prints "upon this continent" rather than "on this continent"; The Tribune prints, "We are met to dedicate a portion of it as the final resting-place of those who here gave their lives that that nation might live" The Wills "final text" prints, "We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those. " The Tribune prints, "our power to add or detract" rather than "our poor power to add or detract." The Tribune prints "refinished work which they have thus far so nobly carried on," rather than "unfinished work which they have thus far so nobly advanced." The Tribune's last sentence prints "the dead," rather than "these dead"; "the nation," rather than "this nation"; and "government of the people, by the people, and for the people," rather than "government of the people, by the people, for the people.".

Item Description: [Springfield, IL:, 1858. 8pp, printed in double columns, caption title [as issued]. One folded, uncut leaf. Lightly margin-spotted, lower corner of one leaf expertly repaired [portions of about four letters slightly affected]. Else Very Good. This copy is signed by Robert Todd Lincoln Beckwith [1904-1985], great-grandson of President Lincoln and his last direct descendant. Beckwith's mother was Jessie Harlan Beckwith, a daughter of Robert Todd Lincoln. Lincoln's Speech, which preceded his debates with Douglas, puts forth the great themes that marked his political philosophy during the last ten years of his life. This is its only separate printing. Urging that slavery be placed in the course of "ultimate extinction," he repeats his 'House Divided' warning, first given at the State Republican Convention a month earlier. He insists that the Kansas-Nebraska bill was "the beginning of a conspiracy" to nationalize slavery. Attacking Douglas, and defending himself against the charge that he would "invite a war of sections," he stands on "the principles of our Declaration of Independence." Though blacks are not the equal of whites "in all respects," the Declaration "does mean to declare that all men are equal in some respects; they are equal in their right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" Most significantly, "in the right to put into his mouth the bread that his own hands have earned, he is the equal of every other man, white or black." FIRST EDITION. Byrd 2960. Monaghan 12.

Item Description: Cushings and Bailey, Baltimore, 1864. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition of this rare, first publication of the definitive version of the Gettysburg Address. Cushings and Bailey, Baltimore, 1864. Lincoln hand wrote his final version of the Gettysburg Address for Autograph Leaves of Our Country's Authors, a work created by a former Union Army officer to benefit fellow soldiers in the Civil War. Alexander Bliss and John Pendleton Kennedy assembled and published the book in 1864 to raise money for the Baltimore Sanitary Fair. They solicited many prominent Americans, including Lincoln, Herman Melville and Edgar Allen Poe, to provide hand-written copies of one of their works. The book published in 1864 contains reproductions of many fascinating works hand-written by the authors, including a first appearance of a work by Melville and a work by Edgar Allen Poe, as well as the final and definitive version of the Gettysburg Address. There are five copies of the Gettysburg Address in Lincoln’s handwriting. Each is slightly different in its wording and punctuation. The version that was included in Autograph Leaves was his final version, and is considered the definitive text. Lincoln gave the first two drafts of the Gettysburg Address to his two secretaries, John Nicolay and John Hay. It is presumed, but not known whether one of these drafts is the manuscript that Lincoln read from in Gettysburg. Both of these documents are now at the Library of Congress. The other three copies of the Address were written out by Lincoln in February and March of 1864 for charitable causes supporting Union soldiers. Edward Everett requested a copy for the Metropolitan Fair in New York. The Everett Copy is now at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois. Historian George Bancroft made a similar request to benefit the Baltimore Sanitary Fair. His stepson, Alexander Bliss, was collecting manuscripts for a book that was to be sold at the Fair. The Bancroft Copy—the copy at now housed at Cornell University—proved to be unsuitable for use in Autograph Leaves of Our Country’s Authors and Bliss and his colleague, John Pendleton Kennedy, were compelled to write Lincoln to request another copy of the Address for their book. Lincoln complied and wrote the fifth and final copy of his speech—the Bliss Copy—in early March of 1864. It is the only copy of the Gettysburg Address that includes a title—“Address delivered at the dedication of the Cemetery at Gettysburg”—a date, and his full signature. It is now in the Lincoln Bedroom at the White House. It is also the version that is on the wall of the Lincoln Memorial. A very good copy of the book, with a few leaves in the front of the book loose. Book mark attached to the front paste-down. Housed in a custom-made collector’s slipcase.

Item Description: Printed by R.L. Wilson, Daily Journal Office,, Chicago:, 1847. 79, [1 blank] pp. Bound in later half morocco with gilt-stamped spine title. A couple of leaves with chipped blank margins; one leaf trimmed closely at the outer margin, affecting portions of only a few letters. Else Very Good. With the bookplate on the front pastedown of Joseph T. Ryerson, a prominent Chicago merchant who founded a Company bearing his name that became "one of the leading American processors and wholesalers of steel products" [Encyclopedia of Chicago]. A rare, desirable Chicago imprint, recording the occasion that Lincoln "first appeared in a nationally circulated newspaper" [David Donald, LINCOLN page 151]. "The Harbor and River Convention of 1847 was the first great gathering to put Chicago on the map as the rallying point for the whole northwest. It was occasioned by President Polk's veto of the River and Harbor Bill in August, 1846, a bill which included an appropriation for the development of Chicago's harbor. The Convention met in protest against the President's summary death-blow to Chicago's hope of growth" [McMurtrie]. Lincoln is listed as a Delegate on page 17. Page 39 states that, on July 6, "Mr. Lincoln of Illinois, being called upon addressed the Convention briefly." Lincoln and the other delegates, whose names are listed and who included the era's most prominent advocates of federal financing of infrastructure, contested the Jackson-Polk argument that the Constitution forbade federal funding of internal improvements. Letters from absent supporters like Henry Clay buttressed their arguments. "As the sole Whig congressman-elect from Illinois, Lincoln attracted some attention, and his name first appeared in a nationally circulated newspaper when Horace Greeley in the New York Tribune mentioned that this 'tall specimen of an Illinoisan.spoke briefly and happily' to the convention" [Donald].

Inclusion of the preliminary Proclamation in this volume provides a framework with which to better understand Lincoln's final "Emancipation Proclamation".General Order No. 1 is possibly the first, and certainly the first separate, printing of the "Proclamation" giving the text for the information of all commanders in the field (One Hundred Influential American Books Printed before 1900--Grolier Club 1947).

Item Description: London: printed by Luke Hansard and Sons, 1827. 4to., 4 lithographic plates (of which three are folding), 56pp., original black quarter roan, spine gilt, with a morocco title label on upper cover, and with an unidentified contemporary armorial bookplate with initials 'HCC' on front pastedown. Minor wear to extremities else an excellent copy. First edition. Goldsmiths 25345.1. The regime at Lincoln Castle gaol had been affected by Peel's 1823 Act for consolidating and amending the laws relating to the building and regulating of certain gaols and houses of correction in England and Wales> which 'was the first measure of general prison reform to be framed and enacted on the responsibility of the national executive . [and] represented a great advance in prison administration'. [Sidney & Beatrice Webb, English prisons under local government,> 1922, pp.73-4.] The gaol in Lincoln Castle was built in 1787, extended in 1808 and again in 1847. Imprisoned debtors were allowed some social contact but the regime for criminals was designed to be one of isolation, according to the separate system. Consequently, the seating in the prison chapel was designed to enclose each prisoner individually so that the preacher could see everyone but each could see only him. By 1878 the system was discredited and the inmates were transferred to a new jail in the eastern outskirts of Lincoln. Bookseller Inventory # 26067

From wikipedia "The New York Review was founded by Robert B. Silvers and Barbara Epstein, together with publisher A. Whitney Ellsworth and writer Elizabeth Hardwick, and with the backing of Barbara's husband Jason Epstein, a vice president at Random House and editor of Viking Books. Hardwick had published an essay in Harpers in 1959 called "The Decline of Book Reviewing", a scornful look at the failure of criticism in reviews of the time that inspired Silvers and Epstein. During the New York printing strike of 1963, when the New York Times had ceased publication, the founders of The Review seized the opportunity to establish a vigorous book review. They knew that book publishers would advertise their books in the new publication, since they had no other outlet for promoting new books. The first idea was to make Norman Podhoretz editor, but he chose to stay at Commentary magazine. The group then turned to Silvers, a friend of Jason Epstein's, who had been an editor at The Paris Review and was then at Harper's. Barbara Epstein had become known as the editor at Doubleday of Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl, among other books, and then worked at Dutton, McGraw-Hill and The Partisan Review. The first issue of the Review was published on February 1, 1963 and sold out. Silvers says of the editors' philosophy, "We felt you had to have a political analysis of the nature of power in America - who had it, who was affected". The editors also "had one thing in common, it was this feeling of intense admiration for wonderful writers". Early issues included articles by such writers as Hardwick, Hannah Arendt, W. H. Auden, Saul Bellow, John Berryman, Truman Capote, Paul Goodman, Lillian Hellman, Irving Howe, Alfred Kazin, Robert Lowell, Dwight Macdonald, Norman Mailer, Mary McCarthy, Norman Podhoretz, Philip Rahv, Susan Sontag, William Styron, Gore Vidal, Robert Penn Warren and Edmund Wilson. The Review pointedly published interviews with political dissidents, including Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov and Václav Havel." Highlights include the incendiary friendship-ending letters between Nabokov and Edmund Wilson, satirical drawings by Gorey and Levine, and many of the greatest writers of the second half of the 20th century actively engaged in critical, literary and political discourse, with a healthy admixture of art criticism. Plus, a Fine/Fine copy of The First Anthology - 30 Years of The New York Review of Books, 1963-1993, edited by Robert B. Silvers, Barbara Epstein, and Rea S. Hederman, c.1993, First Edition, 345pp. Bookseller Inventory # C00002847
