24 ANGLE, PAUL M(CCLELLAN) editor The Lincoln Reader.
New Brunswick, Rutgers University Press, 1947 First Edition Hard Cover Good in Good dust jacket 
Edited, with an introduction by Paul M. Angle. Viii, 564 pages, 16 plates, cloth, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. Designed by Andor Braun. From the Foreword: The Lincoln Reader is a biography written by sixty-five authors. From their writings one hundred seventy-nine selections have been chosen and arranged to form an integrated narrative. Great names in Lincoln biography - Carl Sandburg, Ida M. Tarbell, Lord Charnwood, Albert J. Beveridge, William H. Herndon, John G. Nicolay, and John Hay - stand out prominently; others, like James G. Randall and Benjamin P. Thomas, are better known to scholars than to the general public. Quite a few whose writings appear here have been forgotten by almost everyone and at least two who wrote contemporary news stories which I have included have never emerged from anonymity. And I suppose there are not many readers who would include Lincoln himself in a list of Lincoln biographers, yet some of his writings have notable biographical significance.

Collectors, dealers and auctioneers from Japan, Belgium, the United States of America, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, Malta and Sweden have collaborated to compile this unique collection of photographs of exceptionally rare hats. These include extremely rare and ancient helmets, expensive sixteenth century open-faced helmets, Zischagges, Burgonets, unique eighteenth century headdress, French shakos from the First Empire, neo-classical helmets from the Napoleonic wars, early Spiked helmets from the Crimean war period, Oriental helmets, and First World War headgear. The book is lavishly illustrated with close-up views that assist collectors in identifying aging characteristics. It also places collecting in the context of history, by discussing the employment of the headgear at war. The phenomenon of Internet auctions, replicas, forgeries, and prices are also covered."

[8], 280 pages, illustrations, pictorial wrappers, very good. Illustrations by John L. Ogden. From the back cover: "Maine abolitionists worked to end slavery and to aid escaped slaves - Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, was one - yet the first American sea captain ever convicted and hanged for participating in the slave trade was from Maine. A Maine doctor was in the audience when President Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth - the same actor who, in 1861, had played to packed houses in Portland. Joshua L. Chamberlain won lasting renown as the Union officer who turned the tide of the war at Gettysburg; other Maine people worked in secret behind rebel lines as spies. Maine soldiers survived Confederate prisons and used their woodsman's skills to salvage the disastrous Red River Campaign. An entire Maine regiment was involved in an infamous Medal of Honor scandal. These are just a few of the fascinating and often surprising individual stories you will find in this unusual anthology. " ; 280 pages
