  • By Jim Vickrey on May 4, 2013

    However, the title is completely misleading. The book is about "the complete works" and with access to the latter is not particularly helpful, other than as a bibliography. -- Dr. Jim Vickrey, Ph.D., J.D., life-long student of our 16th and greatest President, who adds: I concluded in the first scholarly article on Lincoln's lecture on "Discoveries and Inventions that, If Lincoln had "lectured" at Cooper Union in February, 1860, as he was originally asked to do, and if he had failed as he had with his least-known speech-lecture -- the poorly received lecture(s) on "Discoveries and Inventions," given in a few places in 1859-60, it's likely he'd have been as unsuccessful and so would not have given the one speech most responsible for his getting the Republican nomination in 1860 -- the Cooper Union Address, perhaps his third or fourth greatest speech.

    The title is misleading. It is no more than commentary on the edition plus bibliography. I expected much more.

    This isn't a review, merely an attempt to make the "Book Description" more readable. Since this was put together by two of his closest associates, John Nicolay & John Hay, in the years after his death, it seems like a valuable resource. I just want to make it a bit more desirable by trying to decipher the mess that currently appears as the "Book Description". I've taken liberties since much was indistinguishable & I don't have a copy of the book in my hands. This is what I came up with, [which is obviously a description of the work as it was when published over a century ago]:COMPLETE WORKS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLNEdited by John G. Nicolay and John HayWith a general introduction by Richard Watson Gilder and special articles by other eminent personsNew and Enlarged Edition Volume I New York Francis D.

The other is a Mr. Nicolay. The photograph... I think, in the year 1863. Yours very truly, Judd Stewart, Esquire, 71 Broadway, New York.Preface edition of the Complete Works of Abraham Lincoln, hoping and trusting that it will be received as a welcome addition to American historical literature. John G. Nicolay, John Hay.Something more than a decade has elapsed since the preceding words were written, and during that period the assiduity of a multitude of Lincoln collectors has brought to light a large amount of manuscript material which inevitably escaped even such conscientious workers as Nicolay and Hay. The collectors have been so diligent during this period it is hardly probable that any of Lincolns writings of importance can be any longer undiscovered. The aim has been to collect this material, add it to the work of the two great biographers, and so make a complete and definitive edition. The chronological arrangement of the original edition has been followed and all new additions to the text inserted in their respective places and marked with an asterisk. Explanatory and biographical notes have been added where deemed necessary to explain obscure allusions or to preserve the continuity of the narrative. These notes are mostly new
