2 ANGLE, PAUL M(CCLELLAN) editor The Lincoln Reader.
New Brunswick, Rutgers University Press, 1947 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Edited, with an introduction by Paul M. Angle. 564 pages, 16 plates, cloth, very good. 1st edition. 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. ; 564 pages

9 MILLER, WILLIAM LEE Lincoln's Virtues: An Ethical Biography
New York Alfred A. Knopf, 2002 037540158x / 9780375401589 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
515 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. From the estate of collector Colin Kidd and with his embossed label. Stated first edition. From the publisher: How did an unschooled career politician named Abraham Lincoln, from the raw frontier villages of early-nineteenth-century Illinois, become one of the most revered of our national icons? This is the question that William Lee Miller explores and answers, in fascinating detail, in Lincoln's Virtues. Lincoln, Miller says, was a great man who was also a good man. It is the central thrust of this "ethical biography" to reveal how he became both, to trace his moral and intellectual development in the context of his times and in confrontation with the leading issues of the day-most notably, of course, that of slavery. Following the rough chronology of Lincoln's life up to the crucial decisions in the winter of secession, the narrative portrays his conscious shaping of himself as a writer, speaker, moral agent, politician, and statesman. Miller shows us a man who educated himself through reading, had a mind inclined to plow down to first principles and hold to them, and combined clarity of thought with firmness of will and power of expression, a man whose conduct rose to a higher moral standard the higher his office and the greater his power. The author takes us into the pivotal moments of "moral escalation" in Lincoln's political life, allowing us to see him come gradually to the point at which he was compelled to say, "Hold fast with a chain of steel." Miller makes clear throughout that Lincoln never left behind or "rose above" the role of "politician," but rather fulfilled the highest possibilities of this peculiarly honorable democratic vocation. Lincoln's Virtues approaches this much-written-about figure from a wholly new standpoint. As a biography uniquely revealing of its subject's heart and mind, it represents a major contribution to the current and perennial American discussion of national moral conduct, and of the relationship between politics and morality. ; Book Club Edition

10 SANDBURG, CARL. Abraham Lincoln. The war years. (Four volumes)
New York Harcourt Brace & Company 1939 Hardcover Fair with no dust jacket 
4 volumes (660, 655, 673 and 515 pages), plates, maps,illustrations and maps, cloth, ex-library with usual library markings, some shelf-wear, covers rubbed, text very good. Monaghan 3711. Paul Angle (A Shelf Of Lincoln Books) notes 'The War Years is infinitely larger in its scope and infinitely more detailed than its predecessor. To be sure, it covers only four years of Lincoln's life, but at the same time, it covers a nation. Here is the contemporary picture and opinion of Lincoln - how he looked to thousands of people of his own time and what they said about him - sifted and cemented by a biographer perfectly qualified, by temperament and long years of research, for his task. Here also are pictures of hundreds of other actors in the great drama of a nation in civil war - men and women whose names are household words even today, many others long forgotten. Altogether, the book is an incredibly complex compendium.'

15 Wilson, Douglas L. Honor's Voice. The Transformation of Abraham Lincoln.
New York Alfred A. Knopf 1998 067940788X / 9780679407881 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
383 pages, illustrations, black cloth, dust jacket, former owner's embossed label on front blank endpaper otherwise fine. Stated first edition. From LIBRARYJOURNAL: " Between 1831 and 1842, Abraham Lincoln was transformed from an impoverished, unsuccessful young man of 22 into a highly regarded attorney and member of the Illinois House of Representatives, while developing the self-esteem, kindness, and political shrewdness that would make him America's most beloved president. Wilson, director of the International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello, has written extensively on Lincoln and offers here a fascinating inquiry into his character development. Despite the lack of reliable first-person accounts about the president's life, the author has pulled together informative narratives of Lincoln's politics, education, and troublesome relations with women, especially his arduous courtship of Mary Todd, whom he married in 1842. Lincoln is vividly portrayed as a man riddled by self-doubts and anxiety that challenged his mental stability on more than one occasion. His marriage, however troubled, allowed Lincoln to develop a sense of honor essential for his future political triumphs. Not a comprehensive biography, this book will nevertheless be warmly welcomed by Lincoln scholars and enthusiasts." ; 9.70 X 6.50 X 1.40 inches; 383 pages
