Product Description

Don E. Fehrenbacher, editor. Abraham Lincoln measured the promise-and cost-of American freedom in lucid and extraordinarily moving prose, famous for its native wit, simple dignity of expression, and peculiarly American flavor. This volume, with Speeches and Writings 1859-1865, comprises the most comprehensive selection ever published. Over 240 speeches, letters, and drafts take Lincoln from rural lawyer to U.S. senatorial candidate, and chart his emergence as an eloquent antislavery advocate and defender of the Constitution. Included are the complete L incoln-Douglas debates, perhaps the most famous confrontation in American political history. "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." -Christian Science Monitor.
