1857 Springfield, Illinois Newspaper Abraham Lincoln as Lawyer...



Item # 552376

December 29, 1857

DAILY ILLINOIS STATE JOURNAL newspaper from Springfield dated December 29, 1857
 
* Abraham Lincoln as lawyer 
* Rare advertisement from his hometown in Illinois - only place to find this
 

This is an uncommon newspaper from Abraham Lincoln's hometown, containing on the front page an advertisement, albeit rather small, for "LINCOLN & HERNDON, Attorneys and Counsellors At Law"   (see photo).

A very desirable and early reminder of Lincoln's law practice before he would be thrust into American history forever.

Also, this is likely the only newspaper in the country in which this ad could be found.

New of the day with other interesting advertisements throughout.

Complete 4 page issue in nice condition.
