[Abraham Lincoln] Speech of Hon. Abraham Lincoln, Delivered in Springfield, Saturday Evening, July, 17, 1858. No place [Springfield], [ca. July 17, 1858]. 8 pp. Unbound, 6.5" x 9.5".

    This speech is one of several given just prior to the celebrated Lincoln v. Douglass debates. On this same day, Stephen A. Douglass had also addressed an audience in Springfield, and Lincoln's tone is clearly to set a marked contrast to his opponent, at first lightly and in jest of their physical appearances; and later more pointedly when addressing serious issues. This is one of Lincoln's most noted speeches on the campaign trail and discusses the Dred Scott decision and the Lecompton Constitution; and includes his dictum that "A house divided against itself can not stand" (p. 5). A few light chips at edges, gently toned, otherwise very good to near fine.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
