1859 Cyclæpedia of Literary and Scientific Anecdote Copy of the 1859 Cyclæpedia of Literary and Scientific Anecdote

Presented to Mr. Lincoln by the publishers, this 1859 edition was according to its preface supposed to "invite to the cultivation of literature and science; to minister to refined tastes, and foster large intellectual sympathies." The publishing firm of Follett, Foster & Co. would publish the Lincoln-Douglas debates the following year.
