First Edition. Signed by Paul Angle on endpaper. There is a Phi Beta Kappa bookplate from Philadelphia to a John Barringer of Overbrook High School for "excellence in his studies". Dust has chips around edges but is now in mylar archival sleeve. The Lincoln Reader is a biography of Abraham Lincoln written by sixty-five authors. Paul Angle, the noted Lincoln scholar, selected passages from the works on contemporaries, later biographers, and even Lincoln himself, to form a composite portrait of one of the wisest and most beloved American presidents. These passages, interwoven by Angle's running commentary, blend into a single vivid narrative of Lincoln's life, from his boyhood in Indiana to his assassination and funeral. First published in 1947, The Lincoln Reader has long been considered the most definitive, complete, and authentic retelling of the life of Abraham Lincoln. Fully indexed.
