by Everett, Edward
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1864. 87,pp. plus two maps. Original printed wrappers. Minor wear to spine. Toning to two pages, else internally very clean. Very good. "First authorized edition of Lincoln's address" - Howes. Here, as was the case at the dedication, President Lincoln's immortal words are placed second to Everett's rambling, damning speech on Confederate hostilities. Everett's speech takes up more than fifty pages, while Lincoln's is printed on a single page. This edition was published for the benefit of the cemetery monument fund. The frontispiece map shows the battlefield, and the folding plate gives a map of the grounds of the Soldiers' National Cemetery. HOWES E232. MONAGHAN 194. (Inventory #: WRCAM51131)
