    Description

    [Abraham Lincoln]: Scripps Collection Auction Catalog with Prices Realized. 6" x 9" softbound catalog of the June 14-15, 1933 auction of the Abraham Lincoln Collection of John Scripps Little, sold by Chicago Book and Art Auctions. John Locke Scripps wrote campaign literature on behalf of Lincoln in 1860. Surprisingly, not everything sold at bargain-basement prices. A copy of the "Wigwam Edition" of the Lincoln biography made $20, while a lithograph of Lincoln by Ed Mendel in a "split-rail frame" realized $175. Great condition.
