No matter what your politics, you will find something to admire in "A. Lincoln Prairie Lawyer" by John J. Duff, lawyer and scholar.

This 1960 biography covers Lincoln's lawyering years. From the jacket: "Early in his career, Lincoln was called upon to travel, by horseback or "rig" to the various counties outside "Old Eighth." In one instance, he covered 115 miles in two days in order to defend a man accused of murder....Mr Duff advances much evidence to show Lincoln was a man of deep humanitarian principles."

The well-indexed book includes two sections of black and white photos

Condition: This book is square and sturdy with a very good, price-clipped mylar-protected dust-jacket. ***White linen boards show age toning and foxing on the spine. See photo 4. There are two small, inked stars on the front free endpaper but no signatures or writing. NOT ex-library.
Please consult ALL photos.
