    Abraham Lincoln: First Appearance of the Gettysburg Address in Newspaper Format. 8-page uncut newspaper, 15.75" x 21.25". November 20, 1863 issue of Horace Greeley's "New-York Tribune". Issued less than a day after Lincoln delivered his most memorable speech at the National Cemetery in Gettysburg. The "Tribune" had a circulation of 200,000. Accordingly, a large segment of the population got their first reading of the speech through Greeley's organ. The headline on the fifth column, above the fold, reads: "The Gettysburg Cemetery. The Consecration Ceremonies. Grand Military and Civic Display. Speeches by the President, Secretary of State and Others. Edward Everett's Address." Lincoln's remarks begin at the bottom of the column and conclude at the top of the adjoining column. A very fine example.
