Lincoln

by Gore Vidal

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good


Nice First edition hardcover, pages clean crisp, binding tight. Cover boards, near fine, slight rubbing to spine edges. A very good dust jacket, rubbed and nicked at extremities, a small closed tear to upper edge of rear panel. A handsome copy.

-- To most Americans, Abraham Lincoln is a monolithic figure, the Great Emancipator and Savior of the Union, beloved by all. In Gore Vidal's Lincoln we meet Lincoln the man and Lincoln the political animal, the president who entered a besieged capital where most of the population supported the South and where even those favoring the Union had serious doubts that the man from Illinois could save it.
