Description:
1836. No binding. Fine. Autograph Letter Signed, to Mary S. Owens, December 13, 1836, 2 pp., 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 in. ""Write back as soon as you get this, and if possible say something that will please me, for really I have not been pleased since I left you.""Here, Lincoln perfectly demonstrates what Owens later described as deficiencies ""in those little links which make up the chain of a woman's happiness."" Rather than expressing his feelings for Owens, Lincoln complains about his health and discusses political issues swirling in the Illinois General Assembly. Although inept at love, the letter offers rare insight into the young representative's thoughts on a variety of political issues. In this highly important letter to Mary Owens, a self-absorbed Lincoln complains to his potential spouse of his health, both physical and mental, and discusses political issues to the point that he describes his own letter as ""dry and stupid."" Perhaps more revealing than he realized, it illustrates the tension in… Read More

Description:

A list of stockholders, entirely in Lincoln's hand, filed as evidence in his first significant railroad case. Lincoln's own appearance in the shareholder list represents only the second known instance of a stock purchase by the future president. The Illinois Supreme Court's ultimate ruling in favor of Lincoln and the railroad set an important legal precedent, upholding the binding nature of a stockholder's contractual and financial obligations. "The decision, subsequently cited in twenty-five other cases throughout the United States, helped establish the principle that corporation charters could be altered in the public interest, and it established Lincoln as one of the most prominent and successful Illinois practitioners of railroad law" (Donald, p.155). ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
Autograph Manuscript Signed by Lincoln in text, constituting his official transcript of the "Subscription Book of the Capital Stock of the Alton and Sangamon Rail Road Company," incorporated February 27, 1847,… Read More

Description:
A monumental event in American photographic history: the hanging of the Lincoln assassination conspirators.
Within two weeks of Lincoln's murder, eight accused conspirators were in custody. President Andrew Johnson ordered a trial by military commission. After a seven-week trial in May and June, the commission retired to deliberate. On July 5 Johnson approved the verdicts and sentences including four death sentences. On July 6 the verdicts were revealed, and the very next day the four executions were carried out simultaneously.
These momentous images represent the dawn of photojournalism in America.
Alexander Gardner, the leading photographer in Washington, secured permission to document the carefully orchestrated event. Gardner worked with his assistant Timothy O'Sullivan to create these images. The collection comprises four photographs documenting the proceedings:
No. 1 Arrival on Scaffold—The execution party, prisoners and guards, ministers and others arrive on the scaffold. The… Read More

Description:
New York: Baker & Godwin, 1863. 48pp. Publisher's printed wrappers, publisher's advertisement on rear wrapper. Spine perished. Very good. In a blue morocco box. The earliest publication of the Gettysburg Address in book form. This edition was preceded only by the exceptionally rare sixteen-page pamphlet, THE GETTYSBURG SOLEMNITIES, known in only three copies. Lincoln made his speech at the dedication of a cemetery on the Gettysburg battlefield some four months after the bloody and pivotal battle that turned the tide of the Civil War in favor of the Union. Lincoln's speech was preceded by an address from Edward Everett, the most famous orator of his day. Everett's speech took some ninety minutes to deliver, and is largely forgotten. Lincoln's speech, delivered in only a few minutes, is immortal. It is a supreme distillation of American values, and of the sacrifices necessary for the survival of liberty and freedom.

"It is said Lieut. John Benson [Williams], of the 3rd regular infantry, as been sentenced by a Military Commission, to be dismissed the service. I have some reason to believe there are strong mitigating circumstances in his case, which the Commission perhaps, did not deem competent for them to consider, I will thank you to procure the record, examine it and report it to me. . ."

Description:
Mammoth albumen print (17 ½ x 22 in), mounted, oval gilt-rule mat. Retouched vignetted enlargement. A few spots, some toning. Very good condition.
This famous "Gettysburg portrait," with Lincoln looking directly into the camera, was made just days before he delivered the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.
A giant of American photography, Alexander Gardner is credited with introducing the large-format Imperial portrait to the United States while working as a staff photographer for Mathew Brady. Gardner left Brady's employ in early 1863, and his studio quickly rivaled Brady's for the quality and extent of its war and portrait photography. Gardner first photographed Lincoln as president-elect while working for Brady, and he went on to take Lincoln's portrait more than any other photographer.
Lincoln sat for Gardner on several occasions, usually visiting his studio on Sunday to avoid crowds. Lincoln sat for this splendid portrait on Sunday, November 8, 1863. His private secretaries… Read More

Description:
[Bosto: J.M. Forbe, 1862. 7pp. Miniature, 3 1/4 x 2 1/8 inches. Original printed salmon wrappers. Slight soiling to wrappers, light tanning. Very good. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The first and only contemporary printing of Lincoln's historic act in separate pamphlet form, the seventh edition overall. The preliminary proclamation of the Emancipation Proclamation was issued on September 22, 1862, shortly following the Battle of Antietam, and declared the freedom of all slaves in any Confederate state that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863. A quotation by Alexander Stephens ("Vice President of the so-called Confederate States") entitled "Slavery the Chief Corner- Stone" is printed on the rear wrapper. This small pamphlet was printed by John Murray Forbes in Boston for distribution by Union soldiers to blacks at the front lines, and legend has it that he printed a million copies. Its scarcity in institutions and in the market, however, would seem… Read More

1864. Rare autograph Oath of December 8 endorsement signed and entirely in the hand of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. One page, signed and inscribed by Lincoln, "Let this boy take the oath of Dec. 8. & be discharged - A. Lincoln April 18, 1864." The Oath of December 8 was announced by Lincoln in his annual message to congress in 1863. In the message, Lincoln declared that he would offer a pardon to any man who would swear, without coercion, his allegiance to the Union. The Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction provided, then, a general pardon to soldiers in the Rebellion, and to those, too, who deserted the Union cause. The oath read, in part, "I do solemnly swear, in presence of Almighty God, that I will henceforth faithfully support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Union of the States thereunder; and that I will, in like manner, abide by and faithfully support all acts of congress passed during the existing rebellion with reference… Read More

Two days later, President Lincoln's casket was loaded on a funeral train headed for Springfield, Illinois, stopping at Baltimore, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, New York City, Albany, Buffalo, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Michigan City, and Chicago before arriving in Lincoln's adopted hometown early on the morning of May 3.

Description:
[Washingto, 1863. 20pp. Original printed wrappers. Light toning. A near fine copy, in wonderful condition. In a cloth chemise and green half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The rare pamphlet printing of Lincoln's December 8, 1863 proclamation, read before Congress the next day, offering amnesty to citizens of the Confederacy providing they take an oath that they "will abide by and faithfully support all proclamations of the President made during the existing rebellion having reference to slaves" (i.e. the Emancipation Proclamation). When the number of persons in any state taking the oath reached ten percent of the number of voters in 1860, this group of loyal voters could form a state government that could be recognized by the President. The Amnesty Proclamation was issued with President Lincoln's third Annual Message to Congress (i.e. State of the Union Address) on December 8, 1863; the State of the Union Address follows the Amnesty Proclamation here. Toward the close of 1863, with the… Read More

Description:
Washington, D.C.: U. S. Government, 17 July 1862. 445 x 565 mm. (17 3/4 x 22 1/2"). 17 lines of engraved text in copperplate script, with names and dates completed in a fine secretarial hand. Loose, as issued, in an archival mylar sleeve. Neatly mended two-and-three-quarters-inch tear to one edge (well away from text), half inch slit to end of one fold, three very short separations along two folds (only one touching text), otherwise A FINE FRESH, SPECIMEN, clean and bright, the signature dark and clear, the wax-and-white-paper seal intact. This is an excellent example of a presidential document with Lincoln's full signature and with that of his Secretary of State, William Henry Seward (1801-72), remembered for negotiating the purchase of Alaska from Russia. The consul appointed in this document, Jay Haziel Sherman of Vermont, served in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, from 1861 to 1865. It is likely this appointee was Jahaziel Blossom Sherman (1801-65), son of pioneering steamship captain… Read More
