About this title

Synopsis:

News of Lincoln's assassination quickly spread across the globe and provoked an unparalleled outpouring of condolences. In the words of the citizens of the French city of Caen: There are crimes which shock and distress not one nation only, but the conscience of mankind. Hundreds of letters expressing this universal sympathy were directed to American ambassadors and envoys, the United States Congress, the newly inaugurated president, Andrew Johnson, and to the American people. On March 2, 1867, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed a joint resolution instructing that this correspondence be collected and there be printed for distribution by the Department of State, on fine paper, with wide margin, a sufficient number of copies to supply one copy to each senator and each representative of the Thirty-ninth Congress and to each foreign government, and one copy to each corporation, association, or public body, whose expressions of condolence or sympathy are published in said volume; one hundred of these copies to be bound in full Turkey morocco, full gilt, and the remaining copies to be bound in half Turkey morocco, marble edged. The totality of the correspondence that arrived from beyond the borders of the United States is reproduced in this volume for the first time since its original publication. It was considered at the time and remains an extraordinary tribute to the character and achievements of the sixteenth president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. In keeping with the original intent of the congress this edition is bound in bonded leather with gilt edges and a ribbon marker attached.
