MAGAZINE OF HISTORY

The Famous Abbatt Reprints of Rare Lincolniana –

“Extra Numbers” Of  The Magazine Of History

 

William Abbatt, well-known bibliographer and editor devoted forty years of his life in carrying out the work of the Magazine of History. The “Extra Numbers” of this publication were issued in a limited edition of fifty-five copies each (most of which went to libraries) and all have become excessively rare. Fifty-two of the “Extra Numbers” were devoted entirely to Rare Lincolniana, reprinting Lincoln material otherwise virtually unobtainable to collectors. I am fortunate in being able to offer many of these issues to my customers.
