4to., 254 pages. Very nice condition on this beautifully illustrated record of the honors accorded President Lincoln by the City Of New York after his assassination. The name in gilt on the cover, Charles Lasalle, is not found in the book, but he was a chaplain with the 55th Regiment (according to Documents of the Assembly of the State of New York, Volume 5 1868), and that regiment was in the procession. A good guess is that it was his copy.
