Editorial Review
Written only 25 years after his death, this beloved biography of Abraham Lincoln offers something that most other studies of him do not: an intimate portrait constructed from the memories, experiences, and evidence of those who knew him. Lincoln's former law partner WILLIAM HENRY HERNDON (1818-1891) broke new journalistic ground when he insisted, in compiling this charming and insightful work, on gathering input from others who knew Lincoln well. Everything from old correspondence to new interviews Herndon conducted himself with such figures as Mary Todd Lincoln contribute to a personal look at the great man as a man, not as a myth. First published in 1889 across three small volumes, this replica edition collects the complete work into one book that will surprise and delight even those students of history who believe they know everything there is to know about Lincoln.
