Abraham Lincoln and His Books (Classic Reprint)
Fb&c Limited, Jan 14, 2018 - 120 pages
Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln and His Books
At New Salem, Lincoln read law, and had his introduction to natural history, and to scientific subjects. Herndon relates that he read Rollin's Ancient History and Gibbon's Rome, but that he did not greatly enjoy history. I have several volumes once owned by him, and bearing the firm name of Lincoln and Herndon in his writing, one of them being Ancient and Modern History by J. E. Worcester.
