Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection consists of miscellaneous ephemera, primarily printed material, about Abraham Lincoln. It is part of the larger Bissett-Witherspoon Collection. It includes a manuscript that was, until 2007, identified as an original Abraham Lincoln holograph manuscript (please see "Forgery" note below); a small amount of other manuscript material relating to Lincoln, his era, or Lincoln collecting; facsimiles of Lincoln materials; magazine articles; newspaper clippings; photographs and illustrations; programs; pamphlets; brochures and other items with a Lincoln theme; and several Lincoln bibliographies.

Forgery note (added November 6, 2008): In 2007, the manuscript "On Administration" was identified as a forgery, rather than an authentic Abraham Lincoln holograph document. The Director and Editor of The Papers of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Daniell W. Stowell, confirmed this conclusion in a letter dated September 5, 2007 (this letter is now on file in the collection. See folder 8.1).
