A copy of the Political Debates Between the Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas-The Lincoln Douglas Debates-1st edition, 1st issue.

This copy is inscribed by M. W. Tappan, on the inside front board. The inscription reads  “M. W. Tappan / Lincoln nominated for President at Chicago May 18th 1860!” We believe M. W. Tappan is Mason Weare Tappan, U.S. Congressman for the state of New Hampshire and colonel in the American Civil War. Tappan also served as New Hampshire Attorney General.

Excellent condition; one of the better copies we’ve handled; lt. rubbing of spine ends; usual foxing.
