Publisher: Stevens & Blaine, Augusta, ME

Publication Date: 1857

Binding: Paperback

Edition: 1st Edition


8vo. Tan printed wrappers. 22pp. Very good. Outer wrappers (only) a bit age toned. A tight and quite handsome first edition of the gubernatorial inaugural address of Abraham Lincoln's future vice president. Hamlin (1809-91) had just switched from the Democratic to the Republican party the year before he was elected Maine's 26th governor -- but after taking the oath of office on the day of this speech -- 8 January 1857 -- he resigned after only a month and a half, for the U.S. Senate seat he had held since 1848 and had officially left the day before giving this speech unexpectantly became vacant. He served there until 1861 when he became the vice president. Choice association copy, bearing the pencilled old-age signature near top of front wrapper of MARTIN VAN BUREN (1782-1862), eighth president of the United States (1837-41). Scarce pamphlet with choice ownership signature. WILLIAMSON 4184. Bookseller Inventory # 40449
