Interesting about 6 ¼” x 4 1/8” soft cover paper with about 96 numbered pages. Back cover (orange color) missing. Front cover loose, separated about half way. Sting bound. Beadle and Company New York. This is really a campaign biography from early life through the events of 1863 and was published in 1864. Interestingly the cover includes Lincoln’s death date, so we are fairly certain this is either a reprint of the original or a re-wrapping of surplus original copies of the biography to sell. Either way it is a very interesting look into publishing factors of the time. There is an added Memorial page at the front of the book behind the cover page which support the original book was repurposed. No other reference to the death of Lincoln found.
