    Description

    The Hanging of the Conspirators Against President Abraham Lincoln: "Last Hours of the Condemned" and the "Scenes at the Scaffold" July 8, 1865, The New York Daily Tribune, Vol. 25, No. 7567, 6-column layout, 8 pages, 20.5" x 15.5". Featuring a front-page story, "THE ASSASSINATION," with an account of the hanging of the conspirators, "Mrs. Surratt, Payne, Harrold and Atzerodt." Very lightly toned pages, a few minor stains; top selvage has some tears, not affecting the print. Paper sticker of previous owner on front page masthead: "A. C. Greene, 18 Apr. 66." A few small edge splits on interior pages. But the key feature is the two-column story on the "last hours of the condemned," and the "scenes at the scaffold." Very important news account of the era - well before the days of radio, Americans turned to these newspapers for "first-hand" information on events of national significance. Rare. Choice extremely fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
