Political Debates Between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and

Item Description: Follett, Foster and Co, Columbus, OH, 1860. First Edition. Octavo. third issue. [2]-5, [4], 268 pages. Historically the most important series of American political debates. Originally, Lincoln carried these debates from the transcriptions by Robert Hitt who sent them to the Chicago Press and Tribune, a Republican newspaper in 1858. Lincoln tried but initially could get no one to publish them; however, when he became a candidate in 1860 the Republicans got Follett to produce them in a number of editions. See Howes L-338. It is Howes who notes that this state five of the third issue is rare and important since it includes the letter of protest from Stephen A. Douglas who he says it altered his words. It is generally agreed that Lincoln did not edit any of the items in the published edition though when the transcriber noted there was "laughter" or "applause" those words were excised presumably because he felt they got in the way of the arguments. Eventually, 50,000 copies were printed in various states with the first edition and this third state (sometimes called third edition) are considered the most important. Bound in contemporary brown cloth, handsomely rebacked to style in brown leather, black leather label gilt, covers soiled with some staining, scattered foxing to first and last few leaves. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 025143

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. Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company, 1860. First edition, first issue, with all points called for by Monaghan (no line over publisher's slug on title verso, numeral "2" at bottom of page 17). Royal octavo (9 1/8 x 6 3/16 inches; 232 x 157 mm).

A few blank corners, creased and turned down. Overall a good copy. "After an unsuccessful campaign for the senatorship (1855), [Lincoln] became a Republican at the formation of the new party, and at the state convention (1856) was a leading figure because of his adroit and earnest dealing with the problem of slavery. As the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate (1858), he delivered in the party convention his famous speech declaring, 'A house divided against itself cannot stand.' He challenged his opponent, Stephen Douglas, to seven debates in which he showed the Democrat's inconsistency in favoring both popular sovereignty and the Dred Scott decision, and stressed a conservative attitude toward antislavery, thus winning many followers who disliked outright Abolitionism. Although Douglas won the election, Lincon's fame was greatly enhanced. In his Cooper Union speech (Feb 27, 1860), as a potential presidential candidate, he spoke against slavery in the territories, and through his conservative and dignified attitude increased his power in the East. He was elected to the presidency in 1860 by a considerable electoral majority over Douglas and Breckinridge, although he lacked the popular vote." (—The Oxford Companion to American Literature, Sixth edition, page 376). Howes L338. Howes. Monaghan 69. Streeter. HBS 67803. $3,000. Bookseller Inventory # 67803
