    Abraham Lincoln: Earliest Printing of Gettysburg Address in Book Form. 6.25" x 9.75" book bound in red leather, gold-stamped cover reading "Address of Hon. Edward Everett", marbled end papers, 88 pp. The full title is: "Address of Hon. Edward Everett at the Consecration of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, 19th November 1863, with the Dedicatory Speech of President Lincoln and the Other Exercises of the Occasion". Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1864. Monaghan 194. Lincoln's Gettysburg Address appears on page 84 and was apparently typeset from an original Lincoln manuscript, probably a fair copy by Lincoln, the so-called "delivery text". Within the book are a folding map of the grounds of the cemetery and the frontispiece map of the Gettysburg Battlefield and hospitals as well as the Order of Procession and much else. 1.25" of spine chipped away at top, cover edges worn, pages a bit age-toned, but very clean.
