4to. Wrappers. (10pp). Very good. Probable sole printing of this detailed program to this scholarly gathering. On the third leaf, alongside a "Concert by Jeff Warner and Jeff Davis featuring music of the Whitman era" that followed the conference's opening greetings, Warner inscribes it "With regards to a long-time friend" and signs, and below this Davis too signs. Laid in is a related promotional poster for the conference. Unusual. From the library of noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold Gates (1914-93). Bookseller Inventory #
