About This Item

Chicago: W.B. Keen, 1858. Octavo. 189p. Elijah Haines (1822-1889) was born in New York but removed to Illinois in 1836 where at age 16 he bought a farm which became the town of Hainesville. He was admitted to the bar in 1851 and was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives in 1858 where became a leader in the Republican Party and became a friend with Abraham Lincoln who he had known a decade earlier as he first pursued a study of law. Since the printing presses in Wisconsin were too small for such a large book, Haines had the local firm of William B. Keen published this work. Most copies were destroyed in both the great Chicago fire and its spread to Wisconsin. Bound in brown printed wraps with only a fine inute chips to edges, spine paper to about 2" near bottom of spine. A very good copy.
