This encyclopedia is an wonderful, and essential, reference for all students of Lincoln. Neely has compiled information on a wide variety of subjects related to Abraham Lincoln. Included are major issues such as slavery and temperance, organizations such as the political parties, and people important throughout Lincoln's life and career.

Format: Hardcover
This encyclopedia is full of articles on the people places and events in President Lincoln's personal and public life as well as articles on the most prominent students and specialists on the subject of Abraham Lincoln.

One can read about important figures such as Seward, Wells, and Douglas, and some of the real people who became a part of Lincoln lore such as Grace Bedell and the Clary Grove Boys.

For those of us who are fans of President Lincoln and interested in reading about him and his era, this is a special book. A past girlfriend purchased this for me and I am grateful she did.

This book is useful to anyone seriously interested in Lincoln, as useful as a dictionary is to a writer. I routinely consult it to refresh my memory of a date or to recall interactions among various Lincoln associates. Articles include a list of sources for deeper knowledge of topics. Lavishly illustrated. Superb.

Format: Hardcover
This book has details on just about every subject of Abraham Lincoln's life. It is well written and full of interesting photographs. I own several books on Lincoln, and consider this one to be one of the most useful.
