Book Description: n.p., n.d [c. 1954], 1954. In 1926 Carl Sandburg published his groundbreaking 2 volume biography, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS; there followed in 1939 his Pulitzer Prize-wining sequel in four volumes, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE WAR YEARS. Finally, in 1954, his one-volume abridged and completely rewritten edition appeared, for which this material seems to have been written. There are some choice passages here: the first 2pp. deals with Lincoln's MARRIAGE TO MARY TOOD; the second deals with his law partnership with WILLIAM HERNDON; the Nevins' manuscript is an important and detailed critique of the Sandburg edition; and Sandburg's hand-written list of Confederate and Union generals is, prima facie, a choice item for any Civil War collector 4to and folio. (1) 2 typewritten and manuscript pages which appear on pp. 77 and 78 of the ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS, 1926), numbered by hand "94" and "95"; (2) and one typewritten page (which appears on pp. 79 and 80), hand-numbered "96" -- each page with ms. corrections (in another hand); (3) 3pp. of typewritten editorial suggestions, with galley references, by ALLAN NEVINS for the one-volume edition of Sandburg's ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS AND THE WAR YEARS (1954), with a few notes at the foot of final page by Sandburg in his shorthand, and other pencilled remarks and comments; (4) Manuscript instructions for the layout of a photographic reproduction (appearing at pp. 214 and 215 in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS AND THE WAR YEARS), on single sheet of yellow legal-size paper; and (5) Manuscript instructions for the layout of a photographic reproduction (appearing at pp. 510 and 511 in Volume II), on single sheet of yellow legal-size paper. In all, 9 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 51988

Book Description: New York Harcourt, Brace and Company ca. 1926-1943, 1943. 6 volumes. Early issues of THE WAR YEARS and in the matching format of THE PRAIRIE YEARS. With 426 half-tones of photographs, and 244 cuts of cartoons, letters and documents, and with over 100 maps, additional photographs, and facsimiles. Large 8vo, beautifully bound in three-quarter red crushed morocco for Charles E. Lauriat, the spines righly gilt with raised bands gilt tooled, separating the compartments, which are lettered in two panels and decorated in the remaing four with gilt ornamental devices at the centers, sides with gilt lines bordering the morocco, t.e.g. xvi, 480; vi, 482 including index; xxxi, 660; xi, 655; xiii, 673; xii, 515 + index A very fine, pleasing and handsome set, the bindings very attractive with very little indication of use, internally uncommonly fresh with no foxing whatsoever. AN EXTREMELY PLEASING AND FINELY BOUND SET OF THIS CLASSIC WORK, STILL THE BEST AND MOST DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY OF THE GREAT AMERICAN PRESIDENT. Carl Sandburg was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his Complete Poems (1950), and then again for his Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (1939). The Prairie Years’ covers Lincoln’s life from his birth to his first inauguration. Originally printed in two volumes, the author himself has this to say about this edition, "I first planned this book for one large volume. When completed, however, it was necessary for initial publication to issue it in two. It is [here] made available to a large part of the public I had in mind all the time." The War Years covers the Civil War period until Lincoln’s death by assassination shortly after war’s end. In a real sense, this is the definitive biography of Lincoln, illustrated with photographs and reproductions of paintings, drawings and sketches. Carl Sandburg felt a close tie to Abraham Lincoln because of similar childhood experiences. Sandburg’s and Lincoln’s youths had not been easy. Their understanding of the common man was mutual. Each in his own lifetime would think of himself as a common man, a struggler from among ordinary people, according to one historian. Sandburg put it this way: "There’s a certain level of human existence below which one must sometime have lived if one is to really know the ways of the masses." Reviewers from all over the world called Sandburg’s book a classic. Sandburg, with a reputation as a labor advocate, gained favor with Republicans. After the first two volumes were published, William Randolph Hearst offered Sandburg a job with substantial pay and the Republican Party invited him to be the main speaker at the Lincoln Dinner. When Sandburg died in 1967, it was said of him what he had once said of Lincoln: "Now he belongs to the ages.".Franchere. Bookseller Inventory # 24955

Book Description: Harcourt Brace, New York, 1926. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. Large Thick 8vo. 6 volumes: The Praire Years is 2 volumes of xvi, 480; and vi, 482 pages. The War Years is 4 volumes of xxxi, 660; xii, 655; xiii, 673; and xii, 515 pages. All volumes are illustrated extensively with black and white photographic illustrations. Volume 1 of The War Years is boldly signed on the half-title page by Sandburg (his signature only, no inscription). None of the other volumes are signed. All the volumes are first printings of the first trade editions. All volumes have the publisher's yellow/orange staining to the top page edges, and deckled fore-edges. The original cream-colored dust jackets on all the volumes are plain (no printing or decoration), with ovals cut out of the spines (by the publisher) to show the titles and volume numbers on the books' spines. The dust jackets have some very short closed tears and wear to the extremities, but present very nicely. There are limited, signed edtions of these works, which are quite scarce, but signed first trade editions, of which the present sets are examples, are even harder to find, especially in their original dust jackets. All six volumes are housed in what appears to be a publisher's unprinted cardstock slipcase. The slipcase is complete, but in only fair condition, with a large tape mark on the top panel.

Book Description: Harcourt Brace, New York, 1939. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Limited Edition. From a recent auction of the John Rau collection--an attractive and fine 4 Vol. set of Sandburg's definitive work on Abraham Lincoln. This is an unnumbered personally inscribed set to "Caroline Rieser Rau 1939 Carl Sandburg" on the half-title page for Vol. 1. Carline Rieser Rau was a Chicago socialite and collector who would later go on to marry David Wallerstein--who served on the Board of Directors of McDonalds, ABC, and Disney. Wallerstein was great friends with Ray Kroc and Walt Disney. Wallerstein was famous for two things--first of all for coming up with the idea of "Supersize" for McDonalds--and for presenting Walt Disney (via Caroline Riesor who was enthralled with the book) a copy of Mary Poppins--which Disney turned into a movie by the same name. This 4 Volume set comes from the collection of John Rau--who was David Wallerstein's stepson. Superb unread condition in blue cloth and gilt lettering to the spines. Yellow top stain to all 4 vols as new. The cloth spines are a tad bit age darkened. The slipcase is near fine with a bit of soiling and edgewear to the top cover only--which is missing one fold down edge. The top cover has a silver paper label with title and description in black lettering. Four volumes with 414 halftones from phtographs and 249 reproductions of cartoons, letters, and documents. A very collectible set once owned by one of Chicago's elite families. Wallerstein also was President of the Balaban and Katz movie theater chain headquartered in Chicago--where he first came to know Disney--through their arrangment of showing Disney productions to the public.
