Abraham Lincoln and His Last Resting Place. A Leaflet Published for Distribution at the National Lincoln Monument in the City of Springfield, Illinois
by Johnson, Edward S., compiler
[Springfield]: [Printed at] Illinois State Register, 1924. Paperback. Near Fine. 31p. Softcover in original wrapper. 23cm. First [blank] leaf has a small rectangular piece of wood attached by thin wire next to an ink inscription: "To Barclay Fleming at Lincoln's Tomb April 29, 1925. accompanying a piece of wood from Lincoln's Springfield home. H. W. Fay." Embossed stamp at top of the leaf: H. W. Fay Custodian Lincoln's Tomb Springfield. Illinois." OCLC has an entry for a 1924 edition of this oft-reprinted pamphlet which is described as having "a piece of wood (in pocket). We assume that those pieces were also from Lincoln's home. Fay must have also dispensed copies, such as this one, with a piece of wood from Lincoln's home attached by wire to selected visitors. In this case, Fleming was an important Chicago lawyer.
