The Lincoln Kinsman, no.1-9 & 11-54

by Louis A. Warren, editor

Condition: Very Good


Firt Wayne: Lincolniana Publishers , 1938. Hardcover. Very Good. Light shelf wear to the book, spine a bit faded. Quite scarce in this state, the WorldCat locates only 2 copies of the complete original edition of the periodical. Nearly complete run of the 54 issues of the periodical from 1938-1942 including the index, no.54. Lacks number 10. Bound in red library buckram with gilt titles. Laid in is a 1949 letter from the Lincoln National Life Foundation by Dr. Warren's secretary explaining that numbers 1, 3, 5, and 6 have been sent in the original but numbers 2 and 4 are photostats as the originals of those numbers "have been completely exhausted." The issues treat of various aspects of Lincoln's ancestry from the family's appearance in 16th century Hingham, England through Thomas "Tad" Lincoln. The publication ceased due to the conditions imposed by WW II. Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible.
