Descripción

4to. Burgundy cloth, pictorial dust jacket. xii, 415pp. Extensive illustrations (some color), pictorial endpapers. Very good/near fine. Handsome, tight second printing of this hefty and outstandingly illustrated study, with an interesting background: Freeport, Illinois, site of one of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, commissioned a life-size sculpture of the event that was unveiled in 1992. Sculptor Lilly Tolpo (b. 1917), wife of the noted sculptor/painter Carl Tolpo (1901-76), was hired by a Freeport City Council committee headed by councilwoman Mickey Martin -- this is the book presented to Tolpo by a grateful Martin. Gift inscription on inner flyleaf reads, in blue ballpoint: "To Lilly, / A dear friend / and a kindred spirit / May this bring you many / hours of enjoyment / Just a small gift from me / for all you did in completing / your wonderful statue of Lincoln / and Douglas in Debate dedicated / in Freeport on the original site / August 27, 1992 / Love / Mickey / Lincoln Douglas Proj Dir / and / Freeport City Council.".

Read by Frank Langella

An AudioBook to be treasured by all history buffs: the companion volume to the ABC TV documentary.

This remarkable biography presents Abraham Lincoln as we have never before seen him.  The insightful and vibrant narrative draws extensively on diaries, letters, and other primary sources to provide a remarkably close-up view of Lincoln: the boy, the homespun politician, the president, the military leader, the man with his family.  Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr., Philip B. Kunhardt III and Peter W. Kunhardt give us the fascinating life - from birth to death - of the extraordinary man who was the 16th president of the United States.
