a rare first day of publication newspaper, with Lincoln’s celebrated address  prominently placed. This printing from 20 November, the day after the Address, contains Lincoln's speech on the front page. This issue also includes Edward Everett's speech and a report on the ceremonies. 

The text is the Associated Press version, delivered by telegraph from the battlefield ceremonies. There are some slight variations between different newspapers and typesetters in terms of punctuation and capitalization, but the original AP version is easily identifiable by the use of the phrase “to the refinished work” instead of the more appropriate “to the unfinished work.” The associated press was officially organized in 1856 with Henry Jarvis Raymond, owner of the New York Times, as a director. 

Additionally, page 7 contains an illustrated advertisement for "Barnum's American Museum, the Great Moral Exhibition", promising such wonders as the 22 inch high Lilliputian King and the largest bear ever captured alive.
