The early "scoop" on Abe Lincoln...

Item # 687930

May 24, 1860

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, May 24, 1860  

* Great Abraham Lincoln description
* Recent nomination for president

Abraham Lincoln rose to a certain level of national prominence in 1858, but more-so in 1860 when on May 18 the Republican Convention nominated him to be their candidate for the presidency. 
Page 4 contains a fascinating article headed: "Mr. Lincoln's Abilities" which is close to 1 1/2 columns of text on Lincoln, his life, his abilities, and certainly much more about Lincoln than was likely known by anyone at that time.
A great & very early item on Lincoln as a central figure on the national stage--where he would remain for years to come.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
