Description:

Small 4to. Tan cloth with brown lettering and pictorial stamping. xiv, 351pp. Very good. Spine slightly darkened. Tight, clean, handsome first edition of this important volume -- and with a unique autograph addition: Tipped to the front flyleaf is an Autograph Note Signed from Coleman, heavy stock 5½" X 3¼" postal card, Winburn Farm, Lexington, KY, 1955 January 19. Addressed to Ralph G. Newman (1912-98), founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop. Very good. Declines invitation to an Abraham Lincoln birthday party: "Sorry we can't come to your party for 'an old friend,' on Feb. 12th," and signs himself "'Squire' Coleman." To display the verso of this picture postcard, a small 4" X 3" "window" was neatly created in this flyleaf, so that on the flyleaf verso (facing the half-title page) one can read the printed poem "The Squire," written by fellow Kentucky historian William H. Townsend and dedicated to his friend Coleman. This two stanza tribute reads: "If one would know the real Bluegrass charm, / He first must stop at Winburn Farm / And meet the Squire. / Nobody here is ever bored, / Gray shadows dance on Morgan's sword / Above the fire. / The Squire leans back among his books, / Pioneers emerge from leafy nooks / With powder horn. / 'Let's talk of Boone and Clark', he'll say, / And sip our corn'." A scarce piece, likely printed in a small quantity by Townsend as a gift to Coleman. Coleman (1898-1983) was a prolific Kentucky author and historian whose many books and dozens of pamphlets include "Masonry in the Bluegrass" (1933) and "A Bibliography of Kentucky History" (1949).
