The accompanying photos are an attempt to show the condition of this rare book, 'The Life of Abraham Lincoln' by J.G.Holland published by Gurdon Bill in Springfield, Mass., in 1866, only a year after President Lincoln died. The last flyleaf has an oval stamped 'West School District Library, Meriden, Conn.' and the inside back cover bears a sticker 'Date Due' (no entries) common to ex library books. The oval stamp also shows up on the last page of the text. The book appears to be intact; the tissues protecting the following page from the steel engravings are torn or missing. Several tears an inch or two long on several pages at the Preface and the following contents. One page, 17-18, is missing. Page 15-16 is separated from the binder but still attached to the preceding page. Foxing is minimal, as is age-darkening. The covers are well-worn at the edges and especially the corners. A piece is missing from the top of the spine and a smaller piece from the bottom of the spine. I will accept return of the book if not as described.
