John G. Nicolay & John Hay
Abraham Lincoln: A History
New York and London: Century & Unwin, 1890. The covers (6.5" x 9.5"), black leather spines with gilt lettering, paper-surfaced marbled boards, are in very good overall condition, with a small number of scuffs to the boards, and minimal edge-wear to the spine ends, but with no notable tears or stains, little fade to the marbling or gilt lettering, and no looseness to the spines, all of which are straight. The insides are also very good, with some creasing, but with most pages uncreased, with some edge chatter from cutting the pages open (many pages are uncut), but with only one notable tear, to an outside edge, with border material missing, but with no text affected. The bindings are uniformly secure, with no loose or missing pages. The tissue guard to Volume 1's frontispiece is loose, but otherwise in good condition. There are occasional scuffs and light stains, including shallow stains to two top edge sections, but most page are unstained, and none have significant stains. The hundreds of illustrations are unfaded & clean. This is the complete 10 volume (456, 447, 449, 470, 460, 488, 472, 486, 496 & 482 pages) set of the first hardcover edition, published in 1890 by The Century Company (New York) & T.
