Description: [Fragment of wallpaper from Lincoln's death room] Laid into: Oldroyd, Osborn H. WORDS OF LINCOLN. Washington D.C.: O. H. Oldroyd, 1895. Plates. 8vo in red cloth, cloth with some fading and soiling, contents clean. *********************** Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on front blank "Very Truly Yours, O.H. Oldroyd, 516 10th St. Washington D.C. Feb. 19, 1896." With fragment of wallpaper laid down on rear pastedown and with note in ink, "Taken from the wall of the room in which Lincoln died. 516 10th St. Washington D.C." Osborn H. Oldroyd (1842-1930) was a Civil War sergeant, writer, and collector of Lincoln memorabilia. He briefly rented the former home of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois, which Oldroyd converted into The Lincoln Museum in 1884. Oldroyd moved his family (and collection of Lincoln memorabilia) to the Peterson House in Washington, D.C., where Lincoln died. The majority of Oldroyd's collection was later sold to the U.S. government in 1925 and moved to the Ford Theatre.
