black titles spine; "At seven o'clock on the morning of April 14, 1865, President Lincoln came out of his bedroom, nodded to the night guard, and started down the hall to his office. At 7:22 a.m. the following morning Surgeon General Barnes pressed silver coins to his eyelids as Mrs. Lincoln moaned. The president's day was, as usual, crammed with meetings and appointments, but he was probably no busier than the man who would stand behind him at Ford's Theatre that evening. For though the plan had been a long time brewing, the time and place were not set until eleven that morning. Minute-by-minute 'The Day Lincoln Was Shot' chronicles the movements of these two men until the almost unbearable suspense snaps with a single gunshot and a leap to the stage. From a thousand bits and scraps of information Jim Bishop has fashioned an unforgettable tale of tragedy more gripping than fiction, more alive than any newspaper account."; previous owner's name on pre-title page; including index - 312 pages.
