Description

D.W. Bartlett’s Life and Public Services of Hon. Abraham Lincoln brought Lincoln to life for voters.

In order to quickly get this on press, Bartlett relied on John Locke Scripps of the Chicago Tribune, who had interviewed Lincoln in Springfield.

Bears a beautiful woodcut of the Cooper Union pose of Lincoln, taken by Mathew Brady. Lincoln said this image helped “make (him) president.” 

Better than average condition, though rear wrapper missing.

Bartlett, D. W.  LIFE AND PUBLIC SERVICES OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN.  N.Y.: H. Dayton, Publisher, (1860).  1st.; 150p. Second, revised edition; 150p.;  front wrapper illustration
