Mary Lincoln, Wife and Mother


No. 214 of 260 signed and hand-numbered copies, 250 of which were placed on sale. Mild foxing to spine, very good. Price sticker (or something similar) stuck to rear of frontispiece was removed roughly and has thinned the page of the frontispiece without breaking through, but the stain has offset to the page before the frontispiece. Another price sticker was successfully removed from the front free endpaper but its stain affects the front pastedown and the verso of the front free endpaper. Finally, a third sticker on the verso margin of the colophon page has bled through to the blank margins of the colophon page, as well as to its facing page, the verso of the front free endpaper. Essentially there are 3 sticker stains all on blank areas of the preliminary leaves. The book is partially unopened and very good with no other faults. The slipcase is present, and while it has tears, there is no splitting of the joints. A very acceptable copy of an uncommon book, signed by both Sandburg and Angle.; Small 4to 8 1/2 x 11; 357 pp
