John Nicolay & John Hay’s Abraham Lincoln: A History, the 1917 edition.

An indispensable biography by Abraham Lincoln’s secretaries.

“One of the truly essential works on Lincoln, as much a history of the Civil War as a biography of the man who prosecuted it.  Penned by his two personal secretaries, who knew him during the Springfield years and were at the heart of his administration, this set is a gold mine of primary material, contains secondary sources not found elsewhere, is well structured and well written, and for all its understandable biases, is “one of the greatest historical products of its era and is still a necessary source for Lincoln biographers.”
–Mark E. Neely, Jr.

Minimal wear; usual edge soiling; v. 7 bumped & scuffed; v. 8 scuffed; else excellent. Bright!
