This volume presents nearly 250 of Lincoln's most important speeches, state papers, and letters in their entirety. Here are not only the masterpieces—the Gettysburg Address, the Inaugural Addresses, the 1858 Republican Convention Speech, the Emancipation Proclamation—but hundreds of lesser-known gems. Alfred Kazin has written that Lincoln was "not just the greatest writer among our Presidents . . . but the most telling and unforgettable of all American 'public' writer-speakers," and it’s never been cleaner than in this comprehensive edition.
This is the most comprehensive and readable one volume collection of Lincoln's writings ever published. David Donald, author of Lincoln Reconsidered and Lincoln's Herndon
I know of no other Lincoln student who, across a long period, has so completely familiarized himself with Lincoln's letters, speeches, and state papers. Many of these items he has brooded over so long that they have become a part of him. His book is honest and able.
