Lincoln's Notebooks

Lincoln's Notebooks

Letters, Speeches, Journals, and Poems

This unique collection combines the public and private words of our most beloved and eloquent American president into one essential notebook of his writings.

In addition to being one of the most admired and successful politicians in history, Abraham Lincoln was a gifted writer whose speeches, eulogies, and addresses are quoted often and easily recognized all around the world.

Arranged chronologically into topics such as family and friends, the law, politics and the presidency, story-telling, religion, and morality, Lincoln’s Notebooks includes his famous letters to Ulysses S. Grant, Horace Greeley, and Henry Pierce as well as personal letters to Mary Todd Lincoln and his note to Mrs. Bixby, the mother who lost five sons during the Civil War. Also included are full texts of the Gettysburg Address, the Emancipation Proclamation, both of Lincoln’s inaugural addresses, and his famous “A House Divided” speech. Rarely seen writings like poetry he composed as teenager give insight into Lincoln’s personality and private life.

Richly illustrated with seventy-five photographs, facsimiles of letters, and more, plus commentary throughout by Dan Tucker and a foreword by Lincoln expert Harold Holzer, Lincoln’s Notebooks is an intimate look at this esteemed president.
