Título: Partly-Printed Autograph Document Signed (by...
16th president of the United States. Partly-printed ADS (by an election official, not Lincoln), 2pp (recto and verso), 7 3/4" X 13", Jacksonville Precinct, IL, 1840 November. Near fine. Minor, even age toning. Lincoln ran for elector in the William H. Harrison vs. Henry Clay presidential election of 1840. He failed to get elected as elector, though the Whig candidate Harrison won. In this rare poll book leaf, headlined "Poll Book for Jacksonville Precinct, Nov. 1840" partly in print, the registered voters names run down the left margin (27 on each side, numbered pages 5 and 6) -- all penned in the same bold hand, no doubt an election official. Interestingly, among the voters on page five is one "James Lincoln," no relation, who voted for all the Democratic electors. A printed column running across the top, labeled "For Presidential Electors," lists ten elector candidates -- the last being Lincoln, whose name is misspelled "Abram Lincoln." (Fellow Lincoln colleague, legislator and future Union general John A. McClernand, 1812-1900, is also listed.) The five Whig candidates seem to have performed well in this particular precinct. A rare relic of one of Lincoln's first political forays at age thirty-one. Quite handsome. N° de ref. de la librería 40642
