“One of the most widely consulted reference works on Lincoln”


The standard bibliography on Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth U.S. President, “Great Emancipator” of slaves, and hero-martyr of the American Civil War.

“Five major bibliographies have appeared in print since 1865; four by collectors and the fifth, a two-volume work by the Illinois State Historical Library, is titled Lincoln Bibliography, 1839–1939. This work is commonly spoken of as the ‘Monaghan bibliography’ or ‘Monaghan,’ a reference to its editor James Jay Monaghan. It has been — and continues to be — one of the most widely consulted reference works on Lincoln.”¹
