Description

Abraham Lincoln reports to Congress as a member of the Committee of Post Office and Post Roads. The subject is whether payments should be paid to contractors for the delivery of mail over certain mail routes in Georgia.

This report does not appear in Jay Monaghan’s Lincoln’s Bibliography 1839-1939.  It should appear as #4-1/4, since this shop knows of two others that, if known by Monaghan, would have been numbered between 4 and 5, this being first by date and Report number.

This is only the fifth time Lincoln appears in a separate printing of a book or pamphlet; the only one we’ve encountered on the open market.

V.g.; left margin shows removal from a compilation of such Illinois House Reports.

(Lincoln, Abraham)  MR. LINCOLN, FROM THE COMMITTEE ON THE POST OFFICE AND POST ROADS, MADE THE FOLLOWING REPORT:….  THIRTIETH CONGRESS – FIRST SESSION / Report No. 102…HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. / William Fuller and Orlando Saltmarsh. / January  19, 1848.  1-1/2p (1 sheet); approx. 5-1/2 x 8-3/4 inches.
