About this Item

Much beloved tale -- twice made into a movie-- of the events of Nov. 18, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to commemorate those brave men who had given their lives in the just-ended Civil War, thought his speech was a failure, & was assured of its magnificence by a dying Confederate soldier. In 47 pages, with a duotone frontispiece of Lincoln standing beside the beside of that dying soldier; artist attribution undecipherable. Orig. published in Scribners magazine in 1906, this is the FIRST EDITION in book form from that same year. Slim hardcover has brown paper-covered boards with an etching of Lincoln on the cover, with a one-eighth brown-cloth-wrapped spine. Condition is only Fair: though the binding is, for the most part, secure, the frontispiece & tissue overlay have come completely separated & are now lying loose in front. The covers show significant edgewear & rubbing, heavy bumping to extremities, & some small random soiled spots. The interior also shows some random spotting, but NO writing, highlighting, or underlining; NOT ex-lib. No DJ, & doubt there ever was one. Please see our photos--they show the Exact book you will receive from us, not "stock" images! Description & photos copyright Gargoyle Books 2017. Same Day Shipping on all orders received by 2 pm Weekdays (Pacific time); Weekends & holidays ship next business day. Bookseller Inventory # 014533
