About this Item

Very good hardcover copy of "Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; Including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; Also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, As Carefully Prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of Their Delivery". Included is a typed transcript (date uncertain) of a two-page letter sent from a man in Memphis to his wife on April 17th, 1865, the day after President Lincoln was shot. It gives details of the happenings in Memphis on that day and the general mood of the city's inhabitants as well as the specific feelings of the writer. This edition of the book is the same as the first minus the blind stamped floral design in the corners of the stamping on the front cover. The rest is the same. Gilt lettering on spine dulled. The cloth at the top edge of the spine has come loose about 1/2 inch on both sides. Rubbing on the covers. Top fore corner worn and slightly upturned. Foxing from minor to moderate depending on the section of the book. Previous owner stamp on front paste-down and signature on front free end paper. Spine otherwise solid and pages otherwise clean. I do not have access to the bibliography of works about Lincoln. My research makes me think this is the second edition or the first printing of the third edition. All Follett editions were printed in 1860. The '2' is at the bottom of page 13. There is a rule above the publisher's mark on the copyright page. Two pages of advertisements in the front. This book of debates sold amazingly well for political writings of the not-particularly-literate time period and absolutely affected Lincoln's chances for winning the presidency. Remember, these debates were not presidential debates, but debates for a Senate seat from Illinois. Enjoy these two pieces of American history! For Sale. Bookseller Inventory # 3248
