Item 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

Item Description: Harcourt Brace, New York, 1940. Cloth. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 9 1/2'' X 6 1/2''. 4 Volume Set. First Edition stated fourth printing. Book Condition: Very Good; publisher original full blue polished buckram with Lincoln's signature embossed in blind on the upper covers, and with gilt lettered and ruled spines. A very nice and fine set, handsome and very well preserved; with 426 half-tones of photographs and 244 cuts of cartoons, letters and documents. One of the great historical works ever published about Abraham Lincoln. About the Author: Carl Sandburg was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his Complete Poems (1950), and then again for his Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (1939). 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.

Item Description: Harcourt Brace, NY, 1940. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. "Many men and women, now faded and gone, lived this book before it could be written. They do and say in these pages what they did and said in life - as seen and known to the eyes and ears, the mind and spirit, of themselves or other men and women of their own time. Some of them spoke with action, some with words, some with both action and words. What they say in words, within quotation marks, in these pages, is from sources deemed authentic. What they say by act or deed is often beyond fathoming, because it happened in a time of great storm." [Foreword by Sandburg] ". William Tecumseh Sherman (head of the Military Academy of Louisiana) wept.on Christmas Eve (1861). And to a Southern friend he said: 'The North can make a steam-engine, locomotive or railway car; hardly a yard of cloth or a pair of shoes can you make. You are rushing into war with one of the most powerful, ingeniously mechanical and determined people on earth - right at your doors. You are bound to fail." [Opening chapter p.4] Four volumes in polished buckram. One of the greatest works written about Lincoln. Sandburg was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History (1940) for "The War Years." [Please check for shipping cost on multi-volume sets and larger format books.] 1ST EDITION, 4TH PRINTING. set. Bookseller Inventory # 328HILT-0863
