Charles Eberstadt’s  Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, is the definitive review of the Emancipation Proclamation’s printing history, with a heavily annotated bibliography of the various printings.

Eberstadt, a New York book dealer, thoroughly covers the 52 separate printings published during Lincoln’s lifetime.

The book traces the bibliographical aspect of the origin, development, and official issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Official editions ended by late January 1863, but then commercial firms began to print fabulous lithographs for the Victorian home. They were certainly proudly and “righteously” displayed for the fervor that the words themselves embodied. Included is a tipped-in facsimile of the Preliminary Proclamation, as well as many full-page images, beautifully illustrating various Proclamation lithographs.

Excellent. Quite uncommon, being a collector’s copy.

Eberstadt, Charles. LINCOLN’S EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. (N.Y: 1950). Limited Edition, 199/200 copies, signed. 50p.; illus.; label on ft. bd.
