Good lot of newspapers relating to the assassination and funeral of Abraham Lincoln. Includes: "New York Times", April 15, 1875, 8pp. folio, printed before Lincoln's death. Black-bordered columns, with headlines include: "...AWFUL EVENT...President Lincoln Shot By An Assassin...The Act of a Desperate Rebel...No Hopes Entertained of His Recovery...", very good; "New York Herald", issues for Apr. 20, 22, and 23, describing ceremonies in Washington, including the funeral cortege, ceremonies, the grief of the crowd, travel by train to Philadelphia and Baltimore, honor guard members, processions, etc. Some of these issues bear splits at the central folds but loss, if any, is very minimal. Also included are two additional copies of the "New York Herald", Nov. 9, 1864 and Mar. 5, 1865 reporting on Lincoln's election and his inauguration, including his inaugural address. These copies are in fair (at best) condition. Six newspapers.
