Format: Hardcover
Harold Holzer is co[-chairman of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and an acknowledged authority on Abraham Lincoln and the political culture of the Civil War era. Therefore he brings a very special expertise to compiling and editing "Abraham Lincoln Portrayed In The Collections of The Indiana Historical Society", a 264 page volume that includes 150 images (many of which are in full color) and a complete catalog of the Indiana Historical Society collection compiled by IHS William Henry Smith Library staff members Emily Castle and Barbara Quigley. Here are contemporary and later images of Lincoln with his family, generals, and cabinet members, as well as political cartoons, illustrate sheet music, book and newspaper illustrations of the period.. A work of impressive, detailed and original scholarship, "Abraham Lincoln Portrayed In The Collections of The Indiana Historical Society" is a singularly recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library American History reference collections in general, and supplemental reading lists for students of Abraham Lincoln's life and times in particular. Also very highly recommended are Harold Holzer's other works on Abraham Lincoln: "The Lincoln Image"; "Lincoln Seen and Heard"; "Dear Mr. Lincoln"; "The Lincoln Mailbag"; and "Lincoln at Cooper Union".
