Ben Perley Poore, The Conspiracy Trial for the Murder of the President, is the “only unexpurgated transcript” of the trial of Lincoln’s Assassins.

This work remains the most complete transcript for the trial of the conspirators. Poore was a well-known Washington correspondent who also had his own system of stenographic notation. The third volume of the set was published separately and is Just. Plain. Rare! Yet these two volumes remain a collectible coup on the Lincoln shelf.

In original boards and endsheets; bright gilt; clean; tight; moderate rubbing/bumping; usual foxing.
