About this Item

This prominent New York attorney was a noted Lincoln scholar, author of the 1954 "Three Lincoln Masterpieces"; charter member and vice president of the noted Civil War Round Table of New York and namesake of the prestigious Benjamin Barondess Award for new Civil War titles. TNS, 1p, 8" X 11", New York, NY, 1951 November 20. Addressed to CARL HAVERLIN (1899-1985), noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar, radio pioneer and president of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI). Near fine. Referencing a Civil War Round Table event of the previous day, Barondess jokes, "Did you think you were going to escape thanks for your invitation to me, to be one of the panel, at the Gettysburg Address Seminar last night? If so, the error was profound." Boldly signed. Haverlin has scrawled the draft of a brief reply in bold pencil at upper left, as was his custom. Accompanied by a carbon copy typescript of the very talk Barondess had given at that seminar, 10pp (rectos only), 8" X 11", n.p., 1951 November 19. Very good. Titled simply "BENJAMIN BARONDESS'S TALK," this double-spaced typescript on thin onion skin paper presents his overview of Lincoln's speech, its preparation and reception. The following year, an article by Barondess titled "The Gettysburg Address: Revealing facts about one of the 'Supreme Masterpieces of the English language'" was published in the Spring 1952 issue of "Autograph Collectors' Journal," and this is presumably the precursor of that article. An interesting and unusual pair for the Lincoln specialist. From the collection of noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar ARNOLD F. GATES (1914-93). Bookseller Inventory # 28310
