ABRAHAM LINCOLN

This won the Caldecott in 1939. It still stands as without peer in its category of a first biography of Abraham Lincoln. The pictures, originally done on stone, have been redrawn, with no loss of the mellow quality that stone lithography gave; the text has been strengthened- and it always was significant for its skillful inclusion of many of the beloved incidents of Lincoln's childhood and youth, along with a not too expurgated high-spotting of the later years in his country's service.
