ANDERSON GALLERIES [JOHN E. BURTON]
The Fine Library of John E. Burton of Milwaukee, Wis. / Part I Lincolniana/ Part V CIVIL War Material/ Part IV...
New York City, Anderson Galleries, 1915-1916. first edition. Hardcover.8vo,,Bound in brown buckram with leather spine label,John E. Burton was born in New Hartford, NY, in 1847. He began his career as a teacher, but soon established and edited a newspaper, and after serving for many years as the general manager of one of New York's large life insurance companies, he turned his attention to the mining industry and the development of the Goebie and Penokee Panges. He founded the village of Hurley, Wisconsin, erecting stores, residences, foundries and hotels. He was a collector since boyhood, and although his library contained many fine books, it was as a collector of Lincoln material that he was best known. Burton died in 1930. The Part I auction on Lincolniana was held October 25 to 29, 1915, and consisted of 1,311 lots over 138 pages, including the only known copy of the pamphlet entitled 'The Reasons against the Renomination of Abraham Lincoln', Lincoln's last order for a pardon, and one of 50 copies of the Emancipation proclamation (signed by both Lincoln and Seward). Tipped-in at the end of this catalogue is an actual unused copy of the bid sheet. The Part V catalogue describes 859 lots (83 pages) sold at auction March 6 and 7, 1916. Both of these catalogues also contain unused bid sheets. Some of the pages are lightly creased but there are no marginal markings. The binding is tight and in excellent condition. A very scarce item, WorldCat noting only a few holdings of the original parts I and VI catalogues;none of the part V catalogue.
