Typed Letter Signed.
Noted Abraham Lincoln authority remembered for titles such as "Lincoln in Caricature," "Lincoln Among His Friends," "What Lincoln Read" and "Uncollected Works of Abraham Lincoln." Good content TLS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Elmira, NY, 1947 January 10. Addressed to Joseph L. Eisendrath Jr., a noted Lincoln and Civil War collector from Illinois and one of the founders of the Chicago Civil War Round Table. On letterhead of The Primavera Press. Nice Lincoln contents, reading in part: "I am greatly interested in the work of which you give details in the latest issue of The Abraham Lincoln Quarterly. I trust that you will not confine the book you have in process to the Civil War years. Based upon the fact that most of the Lincoln material which will be released by the Library of Congress in July consists in the main not of letters from Lincoln but of letters to him, I have had under consideration as a supplement to the work which now engages me, one or two volumes to be entitled Letters to Lincoln, covering his career onward from his election to the Illinois Legislature. If your book is to cover the whole field, I will cheerfuly relinquish my own projected work." Bold, full signature and a couple of inked text corrections.With original envelope, addressed in Wilson's hand. A carbon copy of Eisendrath's January 14th response in included. Accompanied by a superb printed 5½" X 6" profile photograph of Wilson and an 8pp 8vo printed prospectus for Wilson's edition of "The Works of Abraham Lincoln" (Caldwell, ID: The Caxton Printers, 1941). Interestingly, neither Wilson nor Eisendrath ever published these projected works!. N° de ref. de la librería 14237
