The Lincoln Bicentennial Collection contains three complete volumes of works by and about the 16th President. The first two books, the landmark Abraham Lincoln: Speeches and Writings 1832–1858and Abraham Lincoln: Speeches and Writings 1859– 1865, which Alfred Kazin called it a momentous and thrilling addition to any private library,” have been reissued with commemorative bicentennial jackets. Edited by Don E. Fehrenbacher, these two books include all Lincoln’s significant works, including both sides of the complete Lincoln-Douglas debates, dozens of speeches, hundreds of personal political letters, communications to the generals in the field, presidential messages and proclamations, poems, and private reflections on democracy, slavery, and the meaning of the Civil War’s immense suffering. The boxed set also includes The Lincoln Anthology: Great Writers on His Life and Legacy from 1860 to Now, which collects pieces by 100 major authors and important historical figures from Lincoln’s time to the present. Edited by celebrated Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer, this collection gathers fascinating writing from a variety of genres to illuminate the Lincoln we know and revere. It enables readers to rediscover Lincoln anew through the eyes of some of our greatest writers, including Winston Churchill, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Waldo Emerson, U. S. Grant, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Victor Hugo, Henrik Ibsen, Karl Marx, Herman Melville, Leo Tolstoy, Mark Twain, Gore Vidal, Booker T. Washington, H. G. Wells, Walt Whitman, Garry Wills, and many others. Historian James M. McPherson remarked, This extraordinary anthology contains the best and most evocative words written about Abraham Lincoln over the last two centuries, skillfully edited by Harold Holzer.”
