This book, which is an abridgmment of Basler's larger 8-volume "Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln," is ideal for all students of Lincoln as a quick source for finding Lincoln's most well-known speeches, letters, and other documents. While other collections of Lincoln's writings do exist, Basler's is considered the most definitive. This one-volume edition of that collection makes the most popular and important Lincoln documents accessible to a larger group of people.

These are the speeches and writings we need to read and remember as representative of the humility and unselfish dedication to our country of a truly great President.

If you're new to Lincoln studies and you've just picked up "Team of Rivals" and are starting to get a lot little lost about what Lincoln said when this a first class resource. His letters, speeches and other written material are here. Basler is one of the foremost Lincoln scholars of all time. Lincoln wrote for the common man and his writings are easy to read. Here you see both the private and the public. This is one of the most widely cited works on Lincoln, but one of the most accessible.

I really like the insight at the beginning since it really helped me understand the writings more. The book was very thick, about 2 and a half inches thick.

I got this book to better understand the man and the time period. How else to do this than by actually getting his own words. Love the idea of just picking up the book and reading his letters to whomever. I am a big history buff and its so cool to read pretty much everything he ever wrote. No one distorting history, or trying to put words in his mouth. Should be required reading for all H.S. students.
