Abraham Lincoln: A Documentary Portrait Through His Speeches and Writingsby Abraham Lincoln
Synopses & Reviews
“Professor Fehrenbacher has prepared a splendid introduction and notes to a documentary portrait of Lincoln through his speeches and writings. . . . Eminently useful and admirable book which teachers and students at nearly all levels will appreciate.”—Kliatt
“This compendium of letters, speeches and public papers of Mr. Lincoln, put together by one of the outstanding Lincoln scholars in our nation, constitutes only one tenth of all Mr. Lincolns published works. Yet, Professor Fehrenbacher has chosen those which are really monumental. . . . Professor Fehrenbachers introduction and head notes for each selection are alone worth the price of the book.”—Hobbies
