519 p. This is a biography of Abraham Lincoln "fashioned from contemporary sources-pro and con-which reveals with uncommon clarity the problems of a great man in his own times." It really is chock full of interesting information and surprises, such as a correspondent's report on Lincoln's meeting with the young girl who recommended that he grow a beard, arguments about whether rail-splitting (or any manual labor) is an asset in the background of a presidential candidate, an anti-Lincoln Shakespearean parody in the London Punch, etc. Black and white illustrations; index.
