Barton, William E.

"THE SOUL OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN".

George H. Doran Company..

$4.00

This study of the development of the intellectual and spiritual life of Lincoln is primarily a record of his religious history, and is listed under that department in this Bibliography. It deserves mention also in this biographical section as containing a considerable amount of biographical data not elsewhere available.

Bates, David Homer

"LINCOLN IN THE TELEGRAPH OFFICE".

The Century Company....

.$3.50

Intensely interesting, rich in anecdote, these intimate memories of the martyr President's daily visits to the War Department Telegraph Office, form a fresh and valuable contribution to enduring Lincoln literature.

Brooks, Noah

"ABRAHAM LINCOLN, AND THE DOWNFALL OF

AMERICAN SLAVERY".

G. P. Putnam's Sons...

.$2.50

"The work you have prepared presents the events which it narrates, while with sufficient fullness, with a compactness and interest which could not be surpassed." Robert L. Lincoln.

"Mr. Brooks in earlier years was intimate with Abraham Lincoln, and has painted his portrait as he knew him. While his materials have been drawn largely from common sources, he has used them skillfully to set forth Lincoln's character, and he has made a book that will be read with thrilling interest again and again."-Boston Herald.

Browne, Francis F.

"THE EVERYDAY LIFE OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN"

G. P. Putnam's Sons..

.$2.50

The original edition of this book was published about twenty years after Lincoln's death, and has continued to attract attention among the growing circle of Lincoln's admirers. This newer and enlarged edition is of permanent value.

This book brings Lincoln the man, not Lincoln the tradition, very near to us. It embodies the reminiscences of over five hundred contemporaries and friends of Lincoln-reminiscences which were gathered largely at first hand.

Carr, Clarke E.

"THE ILLINI: A STORY OF THE PRAIRIES".

A. C. McClurg & Company..

.$3.50

This book presents in narrative form a reminiscent and historical account of the life of the author (Hon. Clarke E. Carr, a former United States Minister to Denmark) in Illinois from 1850 up to the time of the Civil War. Among the famous men he had come into contact with was Abraham Lincoln, of whom he gives the reader an intimate, colorful picture. The great man is here presented as very frank, sincere, serious, modest and simple-minded, and as having impressed the good people of Illinois with his coming greatness.

Charnwood, G. R. B. Lord

"ABRAHAM LINCOLN'

Henry Holt & Company..

.$3.00

This is perhaps one of the most important biographies of Lincoln. Its great merit is the manner in which the author has skillfully and correctly drawn Lincoln's achievements against a world background. John Drinkwater says of this book, "It gives a masterly analysis of Lincoln's career and character and is, it seems to me, a model of what the historian's work should be."

It is by far the best biography of Lincoln written in England; and is the acknowledged basis of Drinkwater's play.

Chittenden, Lucius E.

"RECOLLECTIONS OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND

HIS ADMINISTRATION"

Harper & Brothers...

$3.00

This book belongs to the valuable class of authentic memorials of a great historic time. Lincoln admitted the author to his friendship, and occasionally would take refuge in his office as a retreat. The book is a picture full of human interest and sympathy, that of the weary man, sore burdened with the cares of state, finding thus in the inner room of one of the chief accountants of the Treasury the solitude he yearned for.

Cowen, Benjamin R.

"ABRAHAM LINCOLN: AN APPRECIATION BY ONE

WHO KNEW HIM"

Stewart & Kidd Company..

The personal element in this Appreciation gives it special value.

Crook, William H.

"THROUGH FIVE ADMINISTRATIONS"

Harper & Brothers...

$1.00

$2.50

Colonel Crook was Lincoln's body-guard before and at the time of his assassination. He continued for some time in the capacity of a private policeman for President Johnson, and during most of Johnson's administration was a clerk in the Executive Office. It is a very human picture that he presents of every-day life in the Executive Mansion. It is certainly a unique gallery that contains five of these portraits, including such subjects as Lincoln and Grant.

Curtis, William Elroy

"THE TRUE ABRAHAM LINCOLN"

J. B. Lippincott Company...

$2.50

A wealth of incident has been drawn upon by Mr. Curtis in sketching the career of the great American. He first treats of Lincoln the man and his kindred, and then of him in succession as leader of the Springfield bar, orator, politician, President, commander-in-chief, emancipator, diplomat, philosopher, and of his moral and religious beliefs. There are many special incidents and bits of intimate knowledge gathered from various sources and hitherto unpublished.

Doster, W. E.

"LINCOLN AND EPISODES OF THE CIVIL WAR"G. P. Putnam's Sons.

Drinkwater, John

$1.50

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

The great success here and abroad of John Drinkwater's play, "Abraham Lincoln," both on the stage and in book form, shows his understanding of Lincoln's career and his skill as an interpreter of Lincoln's real character. In this uncommonly readable and suggestive book, he studies him from a new angle, illuminating qualities which make him not only the typical great American, but perhaps also the prime example of the best characteristics and ideals of the Anglo-Saxon race.

French, Prof. C. W.

Probably the most intimate life of Lincoln that there is. The authors are his law-partner, William H. Herndon, and Herndon's friend, Jesse W. Weik. The man is portrayed as he was, and this complete frankness makes it an illuminating study of Lincoln's character and personality.

Hill, Frederick Trevor

"LINCOLN THE LAWYER".

The Century Company....

$3.00

Mr. Hill's affection and reverence for Lincoln add to the charm of his record, which is based upon great research and study. Rich in anecdote and incident and in reproduction of portraits and documents.

Hobson, J. T.

"FOOTPRINTS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN"

The Otterbein Press..

$0.50

The author does not claim that the book is a biography of Lincoln, for many important facts in his life have been omitted. The object of the author was to publish some facts, reminiscences, and illustrations which have never been published before.

Ketcham, Henry

"A VIRGINIAN VILLAGE"

The MacMillan Company.

.$2.00

This book devotes a chapter to "Impressions of Lincoln," going intimately into phases of Lincoln's character which are indicated in his appearance or by his career. The writer dwells on his peculiar Americanism, illustrated in his humor, his penetration, and his mercifulness. He also discusses Lincoln's greatness as a thinker, speaker and man of action, and writes very interestingly of the human qualities of the peculiar genius but very familiar figure, which have made him better understood than any great character in American history.
