For a long time, I've been looking for a biography of Lincoln...but not one of those 800-page door stops; something manageable. This, for me, did the trick.

What I found Interesting about Lincoln: The Presidential Archives was that for the person who know just what was taught in school; this is an excellent source of information on the Life of Abe Lincoln. Perhaps not for the Lincoln Scholar it does offer a some insights into Lincoln's life and Presidency. I found the reproducitons of documents intersting, informative, and captured his life and times very well. I recommend this book to anyone looking to start an examination of Abraham Lincoln.

A wonderfully researched and illustrated introduction to the Life and Times of our sixteenth President. The Presidential Archives, perhaps aimed at a younger audience, but enjoyable to all, is lifted to a new level of experiential delight by including removable reproductions of contemporary documents: letters, campaign materials, handbills, posters, and other ephemera. As is typical with books published by DK Books, the design is compelling and the visual well is deep.

I have read many biographies about Lincoln . What makes this one interesting is the reproduction of many Lincoln related documents such as copies of a The Emancipation Proclamation, campaign posters etc .
