SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, AT THE COOPER INSTITUTE, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 27, 1860., VINDICATING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE NATIONALITY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. LETTER OF JUDGE EDWARD BATES, OF MISSOURI, ENDORSING ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND HANNIBAL HAMLIN
[San Francisco: Daily Gazette, 1860].. 16pp., printed in double columns. Printed self-wrappers. Two horizontal creases, with slight separation along the creases on the front wrapper. Center portion of front wrapper tanned. Very good. This is apparently the only contemporary separate printing of Lincoln's Cooper Union speech west of the Mississippi. The speech, given in New York in February, 1860, catapulted him into the public eye and made him a viable presidential candidate. The final page carries an advertisement dated August 2, 1860, for the San Francisco Republican campaign newspaper, the MAUL AND WEDGE, which had just commenced publication. Lincoln and the Republicans narrowly won California in the 1860 election. This printing is not in Monaghan, and OCLC locates only two copies, at the California State Library and at Harvard. The Boston Athenaeum catalogue notes an 1860 printing by the "Santa Cruz News, for the Santa Cruz Republican Club" but we are unaware of any newspaper by that name in Santa Cruz, California, in 1860, nor does that printing appear in Greenwood. Rare. GREENWOOD 1297. OCLC 58934560, 82691855.
