Book bears penciled signature of Cyrus Woodman (dated July 4, 1860), a noted Wisconsin lumber and land baron once elected to the Wisconsin Senate but who resigned before actually ever serving. Brief newspaper clipping about Robert R. Hitt (probably 1874) tipped in at front free endpaper, which one might reasonably suppose was affixed to the book, after he (Hitt) himself became on the owners of this particular book; in the tipped-in article, headlined "An Appointment Fit to be Made", Ritt's achievements were sung: of having "reported the joint debates between Lincoln and Douglas during the celebrated Senatorial contest of that year". Hitt was employed by Abraham Lincoln as short-hand note-taker from Lincoln's days as lawyer and was employed for these famous debates as well. He and Lincoln went on be become fast friends, eventually being appointed by the President as Secretary of the Legation at Paris, etc. Hitt later went on to be appointed Assistant Secretary of State during the Garfield/Arthur administration, and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. The book bearsno inscription or dedication - only this clipping and Cyrus Woodman's signature.

Stephen Douglas collects the transcripts of the seven debates between Lincoln and Douglas held in Illinois from August 21 - October 15, 1858. When both men were running for Senate in Illinois, Lincoln challenged his Democratic opponent to a series of formal debates, which took place at Ottawa, Freeport, Jonesboro, Charleston, Galesburg, Quincy, and Alton. In each city, one candidate would open with an hour speech, the other would respond with an hour and half response, and the first would conclude the debate with a thirty minute rebuttal. The main topic of the debates was slavery, particularly in regards to its legality in the American territories. Notably, in the second debate, which was held in Freeport, Douglas articulated his "Freeport Doctrine," which argued for using popular sovereignty as a means to determine whether or not a territory would allow slavery. Although Lincoln would lose the senatorial race, Douglas' support of the Kansas-Nebraska Act vis-à-vis the Freeport Doctrine directly contradicted the Dred Scott decision and caused a regional divide in the Democratic Party, thereby paving the way for Lincoln to win the 1860 presidential election. In addition to the "Great Debates," this volume includes Lincoln and Douglas speeches given earlier in the same year at Springfield and Chicago, which include Lincoln's memorable "The House Divided" speech, as well as the two men's correspondence prior to the debates. Notably, Political Debates was printed in 1860 to garner support for Lincoln in the presidential race. Bookseller Inventory # AHSD002
