Lincoln is one of the most revered Presidents of the United States and his skill as a writer and orator remains one of his lasting legacies. This collector's edition chronologically arranges over 30 of his most celebrated writings - including letters, speeches and private memoranda - alongside striking photographs and artwork from his lifetime. All content has been selected by Richard Bernstein, an outstanding authority on US history and the American Constitution, and each piece of writing is prefaced with explanatory notes.
