"Four upwards of four decades the author of Lincoln in Caricature has pursued with zeal and diligence the study of an interesting and significant subject, slowly yet steadily gathering new material as opportunity arose, both at home and abroad, and now places at the command of libraries and students a new edition of his earlier work which includes, with appropriate comment, 165 reproductions of poster cartoons and drawing for the press - more than five fold the number included in the original offering. Care has been taken to determine, wherever possible, the exact date of appearance of each cartoon. And it is the sincere belief of the author that, studied in order, these plates present an arresting view of the hasty, harsh and often mistaken judgments to which Abraham Lincoln had to submit during troubled and uncertain years." - Prefatory Note.
