Gore Vidal Lincoln, Signature in Ltd. First Ed.
A Handsome Treatment!
Gore Vidal’s Lincoln, in Limited First Edition, Signed. Created by The Signed First Edition Society.
In Gore Vidal’s Lincoln we meet Lincoln the man and Lincoln the political animal, the president who entered a besieged capital where most of the population supported the South and where even those favoring the Union had serious doubts that the man from Illinois could save it.
Far from steadfast in his abhorrence of slavery, Lincoln agonizes over the best course of action and comes to his great decision only when all else seems to fail. As the Civil War ravages his nation, Lincoln faces deep turmoil-from the countless dead and wounded on the battlefield to the heartbreaking loss of his dearest son and the toll that takes on Mary.
Brilliantly conceived, masterfully executed, Gore Vidal’s Lincoln allows the man to breathe again.
Brought to us by The Franklin Library, The Signed First Edition Society volumes have special content and are handsomely bound, with all edge gilting. Lincoln features illustrations by Thomas B. Allen and has an attached draw ribbon.
As new condition.
