Item Description: Follett, Foster and Company, Columbus, 1860. First edition, first issue, with no advertisements, no rule above the publisher's imprint on the copyright page, and with numeral 2 at the bottom of page 17. Octavo, original publisher's brown cloth. Some intermittent foxing, otherwise fresh with some rubbing to the cloth. "he began collecting a scrapbook of his best speeches, particularly those from the just-concluded campaign against Douglas, for possible inclusion in a book. Assiduously pasting newspaper accounts of the debates into the scrapbook, Lincoln cast about for a publisher. Initial efforts failed, mainly because Lincoln wanted the book printed in Springfield, which had no local publishing or printing facilities. Eventually, however, the Columbus, Ohio, firm of Follett, Foster & Company showed interest, and he began preparing the first edition. Somewhat surprisingly for an attorney, Lincoln did not seek Douglas' permission to publish a book of their combined speeches, although Douglas was later given the last-minute opportunity--he declined--to make corrections to his own remarks" (Morris, 121).

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
