Description

Carl Sandburg’s The Prairie Years and The War Years, signed twice.

Carl Sandburg collected a huge amount of information on Lincoln for this work and was praised for presenting a more folksy, “real” Lincoln, not a cold statue.

A beautifully written work of prose-poetry from the height of the literary age of U. S. History writing. This 6 volume reprint was released in December of 1939, and includes The Prairie Years reprinted in blue boards designed to match the recently published The War Years.

Sandburg was at the apex of his popularity when he signed volume one of this set’s copy of The Prairie Years and volume one of this set’s copy of The War Years.

Very light wear includes light bumping and shelf wear; a handsome set, boldly signed twice!
