Mathew Brady

Lincoln: An Illustrated Biography
by David Herbert Donald
Publisher's Description
"This extraordinary and beautiful book presents Abraham Lincoln as we have never seen him before. The text draws lavishly on diaries, letters, and other primary sources. The more than 900 illustrations are taken from the peerless Meserve collection and include photographs, hitherto unpublished, by Mathew Brady and other leading photographers of the day. Together, words and pictures provide for the reader a remarkably close-up view of Lincoln: the boy, the youth on the frontier, the homespun politician, the president, the military leader, the man with his family."--the publisher.
