Reprint of the 1960 first edition published by the Library of Congress. The Chicago businessman and collector of Civil War publications and Lincolniana, Alfred Whital Stern (1881-1960), donated his collection of Lincolniana (about 7,000 individual pieces) along with an endowment to the Library of Congress in 1950, making additional donations in the years before his death. There are 266 entries for "works by Lincoln" - letters, published speeches, collections of writings, etc. including many different editions of the Gettysburg Address, 4,424 entries for "works about Lincoln, the Civil War, etc.," 5 Lincoln ALS, and sheet music, cartoons and prints, maps, coins, newspapers, and diverse ephemera, for a total of 5,201 entries. Entries sometimes have annotations (occasionally with contents); collective entries may list individual titles/items. Index.
