Title: Our Lincoln.
Publisher: N.p. n.y., N.p.
Binding: Soft cover
Broadside. 4to (11½" X 7"). Near fine. Faintly age toned. In 1889 a legal magazine titled "The Green Bag: A Useless but Entertaining Magazine for Lawyers" debuted in Boston under the editorship of Horace W. Fuller (?-1901), a Boston author and attorney closely related to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Melville Fuller, continuing until 1914. This bibliographically-challenged broadside appears to have been first published in that publication, for at the close it notes "--The Green Gag." This lengthy poem consists of 26 rhyming couplets, and begins, "The voice of prophecy was his: A crisis is at hand; / A house divided 'gainst itself cannot divided stand." It reviews his presidential career heroically, offering up many brief Lincoln quotations throughout. After its initial publication (possibly 1895), it was reprinted in a number of other periodicals of the day -- but this is likely its first and only separate printing. The identity of Benoni-Benjamin is unknown. Quite attractive and quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 40502
