Key, easy to access primary source material in a portable format

by locolibros (WorldCat user published 2016-08-07) Very Good Permalink

A very nice selection of important writings by Lincoln that demonstrate some of his major political ideas and political philosophies.  A nice, portable edition that provides quick and easy access to primary source material on an extremely consequential historical figure.

A nice compilation...
