[LINCOLN, ABRAHAM"”GETTYSBURG ADDRESS]. New-York Daily Tribune. New York, 20 November 1863.
8 pages, folio, 513 x 399 mm. Disbound. (Separation along left fold, some minor foxing.) "Immortal, one of the supreme utterances of the principles of democratic freedom"--Printing and the Mind of Man 351. AN EARLY NEWSPAPER PRINTING OF THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS. Issued less than a day after Lincoln delivered his most memorable speech at the National Cemetery in Gettysburg. The Tribune had a circulation of about 200,000, therefore a large segment of the population got their first reading of the speech through this paper. The headline on the fifth column, above the fold, reads: "The Gettysburg Cemetery. The Consecration Ceremonies. Grand Military and Civic Display. Speeches by the President, Secretary of State and Others. Edward Everett's Address." Lincoln's short, but eloquent remarks begin at the bottom of the column and conclude at the top of the adjoining column. The paper also prints news of fighting near Knoxville, Tennessee and other theaters of operation. The first appearances of the Gettysburg Address in print were in several morning newspapers issued on 20 November 1863, without an exact priority established. Carbonell, Gettysburg Address 1.
