A handsome and tight first edition of this scarce tribute to Lincoln's second law partner (1841-44), a distinguished Illinois attorney and circuit court judge (1800-80). Among those paying tribute here are Illinois' then-Governor Shelby Cullom and then-Senator David Davis and other Land of Lincoln luminaries. Quite scarce -- and a lovely copy.
