When Lincoln Came to Egypt / with Abraham Lincoln In Southern Illinois - 580db2b7-81f8-19b2-30f2-77d0117425be
Manufacturer: George W. Smith and John Y. Simon
When Lincoln Came to Egypt / with Abraham Lincoln In Southern Illinois

In 1940, a private press published a limited edition of George W. Smith's When Lincoln Came to Egypt. Smith's personal and affectionate book was both a triumph of dedicated Lincoln scholarship and a tribute to the people of Egypt. Unavailable for a half-century, Smith's book now returns, enhanced by a new section by John Y Simon on Lincoln in Southern Illinois including information previously unavailable.
