About this Item

8vo. Grey cloth, pictorial dust jacket. xiii, 198pp. Fine/near fine. A tight and handsome first edition of this compilation of Lincoln's writings about himself -- with one unique twist: Tipped to front flyleaf is the custom Lincoln-theme Bernhardt Wall-designed bookplate of RALPH G. NEWMAN (1911-98), founder of Chicago's well-known Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, who in 1975 compiled an earlier version of this type of title, "Abraham Lincoln: His Story in His Own Words." Newman's bookplate is a superb example of the engraver's art. Bookseller Inventory # 38867

About this title


During the 1860 presidential race Abraham Lincoln prepared two sketches of his life. Using these portraits as a core, and adding correspondence, speeches and interviews, Zall has compiled an in-depth biography. He frames Lincoln's words with a commentary to provide a narrative.

From the Publisher:

"The autobiography Lincoln never had the chance to write. The way in which Zall has blended together various sources is very clever."--James McPherson

“A must read for every Abraham Lincoln fan.”—Beattyville Enterprise, Manchester Enterprise, Pineville Sun, Berea Citizen, Booneville Sentinel, Jackson Times

“An artful biography of Lincoln . . . spliced together from interview, memoir, and speech excerpts, but always in the slain president’s own words.”—Civil War Book Review

“All the wisdom and insight that we have come to value in the man who presides over the temple at the west end of the Capital Mall.”—Civil War Courier
