Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION of Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address" in book form, preceded only by newspaper reports and a 16-page pamphlet printed from type set for the Washington Chronicle (November 18-21) known in just three copies. Here, Lincoln's address appears on p. 40, as one of the "Interesting Reports of the Dedicatory Ceremonies" provided by the New York Herald Tribune correspondent, following the 29-page oration of Everett. "Everett's speech, every word of which is now forgotten, lasted two hours. Lincoln's address … is immortal, one of the supremest utterances of the principles of democratic freedom" (PMM).
