Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Introduction and anecdotes by Colonel Alexander K. McClure. "..Whenever Abraham Lincoln wanted to make a strong point he usually began by saying, 'Now, that reminds me of a story.' And when he had told the story every one saw the point and was put into a good humor..Lincoln's stories were scattered in the recollections of thousands of people in various parts of the country. The historians who wrote histories of Lincoln's life remembered only a few of them, but the most of Lincoln's stories and the best of them remained unwritten. More than five years ago the author of this book conceived the idea of collecting all the yarns and stories, the droll sayings, and witty and humorous anecdotes of Abraham Lincoln into one large book, and this volume is the result of that idea.." Illustrated. 416 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket; paste-on pictorial cover.

"This collection of correspondence is a fascinating dialogue between one of the nation's most admired presidents, Thomas Jefferson, and the laboring-class Americans who elected him. Jefferson fortunately kept and carefully filed virtually all his letters, often adding laconic comments... The writers-- most of whom would otherwise be unknown to history-- provide us with striking sketches of themselves and their families, and the early America they were part of. In language sometimes crude, sometimes eloquent, these men and women pour out their needs and demands, praise and vituperation, with an urgency and immediacy not domonished by nearly 200 years."

Meridian First Meridian Printing Paperback 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 224 pages; This author wrote an earlier book on Lincoln which was a more comprehensive biography -- With Malice Toward None. In this book he seeks to correct or clarify some of the interpretations in this earlier book. He examines the three major myths about Lincoln in Part 1. In Part 2 he addresses some of Lincoln's personal issues -- his depression and his unhappy love life until he married Mary. He has researched Lincoln's inner conflicts and described how Lincoln tried to resolve them. The last three parts of the book deal with Lincoln's rise to political power, his handling of the war and emancipation, his vision for the freedom of all men, and his assassination and its aftermath. Oates' goal is to verbally paint the real and very human Lincoln, devoid of myths, with which most people will be able to identify. For teens and adults.; ISBN: 0452007348

Palmer, John McAuley  
Washington - Lincoln - Wilson: Three War Statesmen
 Picture
Publisher: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1930 Garden City, NY.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall First edition (stated). Introduction by General John J. Pershng. "..lSince General Palmer's retirement from active service he has returned with new zeal to his studies of our military history. Early in his labors he had the good fortune to discover in the Library of Congress a manuscript of great historical value which had been overlooked by all of our historians. It embraces a complete treatise on the future defense of the United States and was written by General Washington himself as the close of the Revolutionary War. This treatise is the basis of Palmer's most interesting book on Washington, Lincoln, and Wilson as War Statesmen. The discover of this record throws a new light on Washington's military wisdom. Its absence furnishes a new explanation of more than a century of unpreparedness. If our fathers had followed the scientific plan so carefully elaborated by Washington with the aid of Baron von Steuben and his other generals, we would have been better prepared in the beginning for the War of 1812, the Civil War, and the World War. So much for the book as history..It suggests valuable practical lessons for the present and for the future. Washington was consciously seeking to solve the problem of economical military institutions for his country. That is still a vital problem and Washington's solution of it might well engage the thoughtful consideration of the modern statesman." xiv + 417 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
