Historical Setting: 19th Century America

The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Here is the whole story of Lincoln told briefly and simply, yet with warmth and understanding. The dramatic pictures play an important part in giving a true feeling of the president and the man.

Genevieve Foster's biographies, large and small, have made an important place for themselves in children's books. Her first Initial Biography, George Washington, was enthusiastically received everywhere and was awarded a Boys' Clubs of America Medal for 1950. These brief biographies appeal to a very wide age-group.
