Abraham Lincoln: Portrayed in the Collections of the Indiana Historical Society
By Harold Holzer, editor

Lincoln expert and scholar, Harold Holzer, lends a unique introduction to this book featuring more than 150 rare Lincoln images and artifact photos from the collection of the Indiana Historical Society. The collection includes images of Lincoln with his family, generals, and cabinet members. Also included are political cartoons, illustrated sheet music, book and newspaper illustrations, and the original carte-de-visite photographs of conspirators John Wilkes Booth, David Herold, and John Surratt. The center-piece of this collection is the original collodion wet-plate negative of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Taken together, the images in this book represent one of the most significant collections of historical Lincoln images anywhere.
