Albert Beveridge’s Abraham Lincoln is one of the truly classic Lincoln biographies, an Essential Lincoln Bookshelf title, and probably the finest rendition of Lincoln’s Illinois years. Unfortunately, the author died before he could get Lincoln to the White House, and the account ends with the last debate with Douglas.

This special collector’s edition was issued after Beveridge’s death with a page of Beveridge’s original handwritten manuscript bound into volume 1 (“Extremely eager for political preferment”), 2-toned cloth, spine labels & deckled edges; very good-plus.

Beveridge, Albert J. ABRAHAM LINCOLN 1809-1858. Boston: 1928. Manuscript Edition, limited to 1000 sets; 4 vols., fts., plates. (M2999n, Howes B-408.)
