Abraham Lincoln: A History, Ten Volume Set

Nicolay, John G. and Hay, John.

The Century Co., 1890


10 volume set. Bound in publisher's red cloth. Gilt lettering. Hardcover. Good bindings and covers. Light shelf wear. Generally clean. Spotting to edges. The seminal Lincoln biography by Lincoln's former secretaries. Hay and Nicolay began work on the monumental account in the early 1870s, using private papers borrowed from Robert T. Lincoln, and took some 15 years to complete the work, which was the only biography based on Lincoln's papers published before 1947. While it was "authorized" by Robert Lincoln, "the fullness and the candor of the record is startling" (David M. Potter). The authors' "firsthand knowledge of the Lincoln administration was unsurpassed by any writer" (Mark E. Neely, Jr.) and it remains a key source.” – Christie’s SALE 1388 Lot 301, June 4 2004
