Publishers' full red cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gray endpapers. Paul M. Angle (1900-1975) was a Lincoln scholar, historian, Director of the Illinois State Historical Society, and the Chicago Historical Society. This collection of his essays, published jointly by the Chicago Historical Society and The Caxton Club, demonstrates the variety, depth, scholarship, urbanity, and humor, with which Angle wrote, and stands as a tribute from two of the many organizations to which he contributed so much. 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.. Both the volume and the unclipped dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition; unread, unmarked, tight, square, and clean. AS NEW/AS NEW.. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. xxiii, 192 pp
