PORTRAIT FOR POSTERITY

A chronological, critical study of the writings about Lincoln. Herndon who hated the exaggeration and believed his the truest image; Lamon and Black and the controversy, their objectionable interpretation provoked; the romance of Nicolay and May; the realism of Weik; Tarbell, Barton, Beveridge, Sandburgh...Primarily for the specialists in Lincoln this is nevertheless interestingly written and a capable commentary on the writing of biography.
