Angle (1900-1975) was a Lincoln scholar, historian, Director of the Illinois State Historical Society, and the Chicago Historical Society.

He wrote on a wide range of subjects, and his favorite pieces are gathered together here. The contents of this volume include: "The Minor Lincoln Collection: A Criticism" (in which he exposes as a hoax the documentary evidence of a romance between Ann Rutledge and Abraham Lincoln); "Books as Factors in History," "Across the Board: Reflections on Book Collecting," and much, much more..
