About this Item

Small 4to. Grey and blue cloth with giltstamped medallion, pictorial slipcase. 256pp. Map frontispiece, illustrations. Near fine/very good. Slipcase lightly edgeworn and a bit age toned, but attractive and colorful. A tight, clean, superb first edition of this institutional history by the noted Illinois and Lincoln historian (1901-75), bearing a fine autograph addition: Tipped to an inner flyleaf is a Typed Note Signed from Angle, 1p, 8½" X 11", Chicago, IL 1946 June 11. Addressed to Ralph G. Newman (1912,98, founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop). Near fine. On "Chicago Historical Society" letterhead, which cites Angle as "Secretary and Director," the noted bibliophile asks a cryptic question of the noted bibliopole: "Do you recognize the typing on the enclosed envelope? It has a familiar look to me. Perhaps that's because this is the second anonymous communication I have received from this same writer. I wonder if he wrote Eisenschiml too." Signed simply "Paul" boldly in black ink. An interesting and odd note. Small pristine promotional leaflet for this book also laid in. Bookseller Inventory # 32826
