Book Description Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1941. Hardcover. Book Condition: in quite good condition. The Sangamon Edition. Octavos, [23.125/9.5inches],full blind-stamped battlefield red cloth with gilt-embossed ebony spine labels, indexed and individually paginated. Illustrated with b-w halftone plates. Volume I of the Prarie Years has been reinforced along the front free pastedown & endpaper. Prior to being elected President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln represented Sangamon County in the Illinois Legislature. . Sandburg often felt that he was fortunate to grow up in such a rich Lincoln area and that perhaps he would write a biography of Abraham Lincoln for young people that would give American children an opportunity to learn of Lincoln as he did. However, this book for young people had changed. Starting in 1923 and published in 1925, Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years had grown into a two-volume 344,000 word study which covered Lincolnís life up to his move from Springfield to Washington to become the President of the United States. Sandburg had planned to stop writing about Lincoln after the publication of The Prairie Years. The rest of Lincolnís four years before his assassination would be covered in the Preface to The Prairie Years. However, Sandburg was so caught up in the stories of Lincoln that he found it difficult to stop. Sandburg became engaged in Lincolnís life and for the next thirteen years he researched and wrote about the Presidentís last four years. His research was extensive. He met with historians, collectors, librarians, and sons and daughters of those who played a part in the Civil War times. He spent time in the White House researching Lincoln. He read newspapers from the North and the South from that period. He read more than 1,000 books in his first year of research alone. Finally, in 1939 Carl Sandburg published the four-volume Pulitzer-Prize winning biography Abraham Lincoln: The War Years. In these writings, the stories of Lincoln and the people and their times are told. In a Time magazine article upon the completion of The War Years it was written, in part, "This four-volume biography is a work whose meaning will not soon be exhausted, whose greatness will not soon be estimated. It can be said that no U.S. biography surpasses it in wealth of documentation and fidelity to fact, that none, not even Douglas Southall Freemanís monumental Robert E. Lee, can compare with it in strength, scope and beauty " The complete publication led Sandburg to become an authority on Lincoln. He built a reputation traveling across the nation lecturing to colleges and universities on the Lincoln that he knew so well. In 1959, Sandburg was asked to speak to a joint session of Congress on the 150th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, making him one of the very few private citizens to ever hold such an honor.
