About this Item

N.p. [Springfield]: Illinois Commission, 1964. Broadside. Folio (30" X 23"). Fine. Superb broadside printing of the Gettysburg Address created specifically for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. Below the large headline in deep blue, this typographically interesting piece depicts the Illinois State Historical Society's holograph version of Lincoln's masterpiece at center, at actual size, in deep purple. To the left of this facsimile the same text appears in four languages, each printed in a different color: Hebrew (deep purple), Japanese (blue), Greek (green) and French (red). To the right of the facsimile the text appears in another four languages, again with each printed in a different color: German (blue), Spanish (green), Russian (deep purple) and Latin (red). Ralph G. Newman, founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, was a member of the Illinois Civil War Centennial Commission and was no doubt instrumental in having this piece created. Interest in all things Lincoln and Civil War was high at this centennial time, and the New York World's Fair held a special Illinois Day as well. Walt Disney's famed Abraham Lincoln talking robot was debuted at this same World's Fair. The broadside was designed by Carl Regehr and printed by Gregg-Moore Lithographing Company. It is in exceptionally bright, fresh condition. Bookseller Inventory # 23936
