A tight and lovely early (not first) edition ("First and Second Printings Before Publication"), wearing one of the handsomest Lincoln jackets -- and including a superb memento mori: Tipped to the front flyleaf is a fine 3½" X 4½" printed condolence acknowledgment card sent out by Thomas's family to sympathizers, reading simply: "The family of / [Benjamin P. Thomas in blue ink] / acknowledges / with grateful appreciation / your kind expression / of sympathy." This noted historian (1902-56) historian, best remembered for this book as well as "Lincoln's New Salem" (1954), committed suicide upon learning he had been diagnosed with throat cancer.
