Book, "Queens of England"
View Full Image
Book, "Queens of England", published in New York City by D. Appleton & Co., 1861. Tooled leather binding, frontpiece. Book is signed by "Mary Lincoln 1860". 323 pages incl. illustrations and list of plates. L 11 3/4" x W 7 1/4" x H 1 1/2". This artifact is a bit problematic, as Mary Lincoln specifically signed the book "1860", but according to the publishing date, it was not published until 1861! Either the signature is a very good forgery, or Mary received an advance copy of the book.
