Herndon (taken from one of his law books); a clipped 1857 front page ad for Lincoln's Law practice from the Daily Illinois State Journal newspaper; and a piece of oak lathing removed from the law office of Lincoln and Herndon in the Tinsley building at 6th and Adams Street in Springfield, Illinois. Also includes reprints of photographs of the law office and of Lincoln and his partners (image of Logan is a lithograph, likely taken from a book), with biographical and historical information sheets.
