New York: Sinclair Tousey, Publisher, No. 121 Nassau St., 1863. 48p., 4,75" x 7. 75", wraps with red covers. Corners bumped, lightly chipped & worn at the extremities, text slightly foxed, w/small interior water stain at lower spine corners. Else VG.

The book tells the tale of Lee's 1863 invasion of Pennsylvania in mock biblical language, alluding throughout to the machinations of copperhead ["Kopur-hedd"] politicians New York Governor Horatio Seymour ["See-More] and New York City Mayor Fernando Wood [Phrenandiwud]. Secret allies of Robert E. Lee ["Robbuttleeh"], the chief captain of the chivalry ["Tshivalree"] from the province of Virginia ["Pharjinnee"] in the the land of Dixie ["Diksee"] in secret opposition to their own leader Abraham Lincoln "["Abraham the Honest"] in the land of the United States [Unculpsalm] north of the Mason-Dixon [Masanandicsun]….

Extremely clever & rather funny…….Mr. Lincoln's kind of humor, most definitely.
