About this Item

Foreword by David Herbert Donald. 4to. Burgundy cloth, pictorial dust jacket. xii, 415pp. Extensive illustrations (some color), pictorial endpapers. Near fine/near fine. A tight and wonderfully attractive tight second printing of this large, well-illustrated study, with a superb autograph addition: Tipped to an inner blank flyleaf is a fine 3½" X 5" bookplate made specifically for this title bearing bold signatures of all three co-authors in bold blue ballpoint, one above the other. Kunhardt Jr. (1928-2006) was the grandson of Frederick Hill Meserve (1865-1962), the pioneering photography historian and "America's first great photograph collector," who assigned "Meserve numbers" to Lincoln photographs still used today; he eventually inherited his grandfather's unparalleled collection of rare Lincoln glass plate negatives and created a family-run filmmaking business and published a number of books utilizing them. Strangely, copies of this title signed by the Kunhardt Jr. and his two co-author sons (whether signed in the book or on bookplate) are very seldom seen. Bookseller Inventory # 41283

Read by Frank Langella

An AudioBook to be treasured by all history buffs: the companion volume to the ABC TV documentary.

This remarkable biography presents Abraham Lincoln as we have never before seen him.  The insightful and vibrant narrative draws extensively on diaries, letters, and other primary sources to provide a remarkably close-up view of Lincoln: the boy, the homespun politician, the president, the military leader, the man with his family.  Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr., Philip B. Kunhardt III and Peter W. Kunhardt give us the fascinating life - from birth to death - of the extraordinary man who was the 16th president of the United States.
