Carl Sandburg, The Prairie Years & The War Years, handsomely bound.
Sandburg’s monumental work, the one full biography most associated with Abraham Lincoln. Sandburg collected a huge amount of information for this biography which was praised for presenting a more folksy, “real” Lincoln, not a cold statue.
Despite a number of errors of both fact and interpretation, it nonetheless is a beautifully written, poetic work.
Excellent; as new. Signed
