Mrs. Lincoln: a Life

By: Clinton, Catherine

Price: $11.04

Quantity: 1 available


Authoritative and utterly engrossing, Mrs. Lincoln is the long-awaited portrait of the woman who so richly contributed to Lincoln's life and legacy. Her story is inextricably tied with the story of America and with her husband's presidency, yet her life is an extraordinary chronicle on its own. Born in the south, she was well-educated and well-connected. The assassination of her husband haunted her for the rest of her life. Her disintegrating downward spiral resulted in a brief, and some say unjustified, traumatizing involuntary incarceration in an asylum and in Europe during her later years. One of the most tragic and mysterious of nineteenth-century figures, Mary Todd Lincoln and her story symbolize the pain and loss of Civil War America. The jacket is rubbed a bit at the top and has wrinkles at the spine top. The binding has a small bend in the top gutter and slight discoloration and the lower page edges. Illustrated. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
