    Description

    Blueprints for the Lincoln Tomb. One blueprint page, 35" x 23", November 20, 1929, for "repairing, restoring, reconstructing Lincoln Tomb, Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois." Lincoln's tomb was originally finished in 1874, nine years after his assassination. Still, his body was moved many times and for many reasons: for fear of theft, during tomb restoration programs, and at the request of Robert Todd Lincoln. The tomb was acquired in 1895 by the State of Illinois. In 1901, Lincoln's body was placed in its final resting place, a cement vault in the tomb. This blueprint represents the plans for the final reconstruction of the interior of the tomb, which was done from 1930-1931. Since then, the tomb has been administered by the State of Illinois and has undergone little change. Today, the president, his wife, and three of their four sons rest there. Near very good.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
