Light blue glazed cloth, 9.5 x 6.5”, with white paper spine label. Exhibits light cover fading, else VG. Abraham was defendant in three lawsuits in life, two of them minor affairs from his New Salem youth. The third case, detailed in this book, involved a sum of 472.50 which Lincoln had collected for, but had allegedly never paid, the Lexington, KY, business firm of Edward Oldham and Thomas Hemingway. A case that was eventually resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, with no stain on Lincoln’s personal or professional honor.
