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. Lincoln's published works. Yet, Professor Fehrenbacher has chosen those which are really monumental. . . . Professor Fehrenbacher's introduction and head notes for each selection are alone worth the price of the book."HobbiesFehrenbacher, Don E. is the author of 'Abraham Lincoln, a Documentary Portrait Through His Speeches and Writings', published 1964 under ISBN 9780804709460 and ISBN 0804709467.
