Description[Abraham Lincoln]. Historical Books Concerning Abraham Lincoln. Two books relating to the life of President Lincoln, as follows:
William Henry Herndon and Jesse William Weik: History and Evidence of the Passage of Abraham Lincoln from Harrisburg, PA., to Washington, D.C. on the 22d and 23d of February, 1861, (New York: Rode & Brand, 1868), 42 pages, 6.5" x 9.75", leather bound. Compliments of Wm. A. Pinkerton and Allan Pinkerton.
From the intro, in part: "The question of the passage of Mr. Lincoln, on the night of the 22d of February, 1861, from Harrisburg, Penn., to Washington, D.C., the Capitol of the United States, is one of Marked interest in history, and one upon which people of this country, and the world ought to have correct information. Hitherto I have kept silent upon this subject, and probably might have continued so much longer, but that historians are now writing up the most important events of the last seven years-a period the most exciting in the life-time of this Nation-up to the present stage of its existence, and I deem it proper to lay the following brief statement before the public in connection with this event."
