Nearly 90 years after his deathand with some 5,000 books already published about himAbraham Lincoln is still one of the livest subjects in U.S. letters. So far this year, twelve new books about him have appeared, and several more are already in sight for 1953. Side by side with the inevitable dust-catchers are a few standouts that ought to have just as much appeal for the general reader as for Lincoln students.
