This was a work produced for charity, the editors obtaining examples from the works of the country's leading authors written in their own hand which are here produced in facsimile.

Lincoln supplied this, which is the fifth and (so far as is known) final copy he provided of the Address. "Because of the apparent care in its preparation, and in part because Lincoln provided a title and signed and dated this copy, it has become the standard version of the address - - -. It is the version that is inscribed on the South Wall of the Lincoln Memorial. This draft is now displayed in the Lincoln room of the White House - - -". Accordingly this book contains, in facsimile, the first publication of what may be regarded as the definitive version of the Gettysburg Address.
