The Life, and Martyrdom of Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth President of the United States; and Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States
Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers, 1865. Hardcover. G- (Outer spine material is loose torn; tissue guard at tp is foxed and has lent some foxing to adjacent pages; otherwise most pages are clear except for natural tanning of print block from one page to another; book is intact and could be refreshed or rebound.). Brown stamped cloth, gilt letters on spine, 203 pp., one BW plate as frontispiece. An early posthumous biography by an uncredited author, although later editions are attributed as being written by David Brainerd Williamson. This is a scarce edition, labeled with an 1864 copyright date on title page verso, in spite of the fact that John Wilkes Booth pulled the fatal trigger at Ford's Theatre on April 15, 1865. Shock and emotions were still running high, we suppose. Includes an engraved portrait as frontispiece that depicts a younger and happier Lincoln than we are used to seeing. Later editions of this book from this publisher are lengthier at 299 pp. An interesting find indeed.
