Description:

EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE: ONE OF ONLY 50 COPIES PRINTED of John Nicolay's separately published biography of Abraham Lincoln prepared for the Ninth Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Precedes Nicolay and Hay's monumental biography of Lincoln by eight years. From the collection of Henry W. Poor, noted American financier and founder of what would become Standard and Poor's. "Nicolay became active in Republican party politics and soon became a political lieutenant for one of the capital's leading citizens, Abraham Lincoln. When Lincoln was nominated by the Republican party for the presidency in 1860, he named Nicolay his private secretary. Nicolay [along with John Hay] went to Washington with Lincoln in 1861. The two men shared a room at the White House and had an exceptionally close relationship with Lincoln. "They served Lincoln for four years, performing a wide variety of political and personal duties and remaining close friends throughout, a working friendship that became the foundation for an important literary collaboration in later years. After Lincoln won reelection in 1864, Nicolay served as American consul in Paris, remaining in that post until 1869. In 1872 Nicolay became marshal of the U.S. Supreme Court, a position he held until 1887. During much of his time as marshal, Nicolay worked with Hay on a ten-volume biography entitled Abraham Lincoln: A History, eventually published in 1890; it was this biography that brought them lasting fame" (American National Biography). The biography of Lincoln prepared by Nicolay for the Encyclopedia Britannica reflects the unprecedented access Nicolay had (through Lincoln's son) to the president's papers and preceded the completed 10-volume work by eight years. According to Lincoln's bibliographer Monaghan, it was printed as a separate publication in Boston in a scant edition of 50 copies "for copyright purposes." Monaghan 699. Provenance: From the collection of Henry W. Poor, with his morocco bookplate on the inside of the front wrapper. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1882. Thin octavo (21 text pages), original printed wrappers; custom morocco box. A few spots, split at top of front wrapper (everything holding secure), impression of Poor's bookplate evident on front cover and offset to title. RARE. Bookseller Inventory #
