    Abraham Lincoln: Two Anti-Lincoln Booklets from 1864. Lincoln collectors love anti-Lincoln stuff, as well, and no Lincoln collection is complete without some negative campaign material. We offer two different copies of Monaghan 336. They are 4" x 5.5" 16-page booklets in pictorial wraps, titled: "Only Authentic Life of Abraham Lincoln Alias 'Old Abe'. A Son of the West." Lincoln is depicted as a setting sun on the cover. It predicts Lincoln will be sent packing back home to Springfield after the election. The booklet contains numerous cartoon illustrations. The first copy has a pink cover with slight vertical fold. The other example has an orange cover with a slight vertical fold (edge loss, as shown). The back cover advertises the "Burlesque Campaign Life of Geo. Brinton McClellan, 16 Funny Pictures. Just the thing to please the Republicans." We've never seen one of those! These were published by the Comic Monthly, located at Publisher's Row in Manhattan. These two booklets are housed in a custom slipcase.
