SCARCE FIRST EDITION AND THIS, FROM THE LIMITED ISSUE WITH A LEAF OF AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT INCLUDED. Beveridge, known also for his great biography of Chief Justice Marshall, spent many years researching the available materials for this work. He made ongoing investigations, questioning what had been published by others and trusting no agent without verifying the work. He made journeys to the Lincoln country, sifted the the many traditions which have grown wherever the family rested, and sought to see for himself how far the neighborhood could influence the man. He was tireless in reading collections of papers still unpublished, in carefully going through files of newspapers, journals and books. The result of his labours presented itself in the form of this fine four volume work on Lincoln in the years leading up to the presidency. Bookseller Inventory # 26212
