Mary Todd Lincoln's copy of The Life of Marie Antoinette, signed "Mary Lincoln / 1878" on the half-title. Comparisons between Mrs. Lincoln and Marie Antoinette have been drawn before. Both were attacked as spendthrifts and both were judged harshly on a variety of charges by the popular press. Both women also endured great losses and privations in their lives.

Mrs. Lincoln was well-educated and spoke French fluently. She travelled in Europe and lived in Pau, France, from 1877 to 1880. The present volume was purchased by Mrs. Lincoln in 1878 at the Librarie Galignani on the rue de Rivoli in Paris, the oldest English-language bookstore on the Continent and still in operation today.

With a carte-de-visite portrait of Mrs. Lincoln attached to the front free endpaper.
