The Raab Collection in the National Media

Each year, The Raab Collection reaches millions and millions people with its national and international media appearances.  Along with its presence on and its other columns, no other historical document firm has a similar reach.  It is because of our nationwide reputation that collectors, institutions, and the international press turn to us for knowledge and perspective.

This week, Nathan Raab unveiled live on national television a letter of Abraham Lincoln giving advice to a young man looking to get involved in politics.


Autograph letter signed, Springfield, November 3, 1859, to Peachy Quinn Harrison. “Dear Sir: I have [no] reason to doubt that our friends are doing the best they can about the election. Still, you can do some more, if you will. A young man, before the enemy has learned to watch him, can do more than any other. Pitch in and try. Palmer is good and true, and deserves the best vote we can give him. If you can make your precinct 20 votes better than it was last we probably shall redeem the county. Try –Yours truly, A. Lincoln.”
