Washington DC: Government Printing Office, 1866. Presumed First Edition. Cloth cover (showing wear at the edges). 69 pages and engraved frontis, portrait of Lincoln. Each page is enclosed within a black border. The covers are the original dark brown gilt-decorated cloth. Very Good condition--one corner is worn, and there is some foxing. The book is printed on good paper. The portrait of Lincoln on the frontis, within an elaborate engraved frame, is quite striking, if even less handsome than usual. Includes an Appendix on the Senate's arrangements for the Memorial Address at President Lincoln's funeral. This copy was originally given as a gift to Pitt W. Hyde by Senator George F. Edmunds in 1866. This is a very early Senatorial autograph as he only became senator that year, appointed on the death of his predecessor. Edmunds was the co-author of the famous Edmunds-Tucker anti-polygamy act which was directed against the Church of Latter Day Saints and their desire to have Utah become a State.
