About this Item

Folio. Stiff blue portfolio with paper label housing 4to facsimile and 8pp explanatory text, heavy cardboard shipping sleeve. Fine/very good. Portfolio and contents fine, shipping sleeve mildly edgeworn. Pristine copy of this superb facsimile of Lee's farewell to his troops based on pioneering Battle Creek, Michigan autograph dealer Forest H. Sweet's original, which he felt to be an official copy, not a postwar souvenir copy. Printed on light blue stock, this facsimile is faithful down to the watermark, the fold lines, the faintly irregular edges, the light age toning to certain portions, the ink smears -- every last detail. Only one edition of this was produced, although the portfolio's paper label on this copy states "Presented as a keepsake / to the members of / The Manuscript Society" instead of the usual "Reproduced by / Donnelley Deeptone Offset." Though undated, and we assumed this to be a centennial piece from 1965 (the document is of course dated 10 April 1865), the postal cancellation is actually dated February 1955. This exceptional facsimile belonged to Ralph G. Newman (1912-2000), noted founder of Chicago's Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, to whom the mailing label is addressed. Bookseller Inventory # 39647
