Description

Lincoln measured the promise--and the cost--of American freedom in lucid and extraordinarily moving prose. Here are all the significant works, including the complete Lincoln-Douglas debates, dozens of speeches, hundreds of personal and political letters, communications to generals in the field, presidential messages and proclamations, poems, and private reflections on democracy, slavery, and the meaning of the Civil War's immense suffering.

Reviews

"A momentous and thrilling addition to any library." - Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review

"The best selection of Lincoln's writings available today, perhaps the best ever. If one wants to be familiar with the moral underpinnings of America and, at the same time, read the English language at its finest, turn to this handsome set." - Chistian Science Monitor
