174 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. BIBLIOGRAPHY. Published two years in advance of the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth (February 12, 2009), this bibliography will be, for Abraham Lincoln scholars and enthusiasts, "a glowing candle on the birthday cake." The volume features approximately 1, 000 entries, over 100 images of covers and title pages, and brief excerpts about President Lincoln from many of the publications. The House of the Temple Library possesses one of the nation's finest collections of Lincolniana. In addition to a foreword and an introduction, the book includes, as an appendix, a 26-page facsimile of Lincoln collector and scholar Dr. L. D. Carman's pamphlet "Abraham Lincoln, Freemason." Lincoln was not a Mason, but he "personified the cause of liberty and human fraternity" and in many other respects embodied principles that Freemasons hold dear. "A very strongly recommended and absolutely core addition to personal, academic, and community library Abraham Lincoln and American History reference collections."-Midwest Book Review (Key Words: Abraham Lincoln, United States Presidents, Larissa P. Watckins, Bibliography, Free Masons, Dr. L. D. Carman).
