Lincoln the Liberal Statesman. [Inscribed by the Author]
“Written in Washington while delving into the riches of the Lincoln papers”
A study of Abraham Lincoln’s political liberalism presented as a series of essays examining such topics as the dilemma over Fort Sumter, constitutional law, the influence of British parliamentarian John Bright on Lincoln, and a comparison of Lincoln’s and President Woodrow Wilson’s efforts regarding peace. Nice inscription by Randall to which he appends this note: “Written in Washington while delving into the riches of the Lincoln papers.”
