Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America

By: Garry Wills

Price: $14.00

Publisher: USA, Touchstone: 1992

Seller ID: 247862

ISBN: 0671867423

Condition: Near Fine Condition


Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1993, this is an account of the making of Lincoln's revolutionary masterpiece. Lincoln was asked to prepare a memorial for the battle at Gettysburg. Instead, he gave the whole nation "a birth of freedom" - by tracing its birth to the Declaration of Independence (which called all men equal) rather than the Constitution (which tolerated slavery). In the space of a mere 272 words, Lincoln combines the rhetoric of the Greek Revival and the categories of Transcendentalism, to provide stunning imagery of the Rural Cemetery Movement. His entire previous life an... View more info

Stone Country - An Unauthorized History of Canada

By: George Bowering

Price: $12.00

Publisher: Canada, Penguin Books: 2004

Seller ID: 226687

ISBN: 0140296042

Condition: Very Good Condition


History is too important to be left to the historians. That's one lesson to be gleaned from novelist/poet George Bowering's history of Canada, Stone Country. While others have tried, and continue to attempt, to turn Confederation, the Meech Lake Accord, and the rise of Jean Chr├ętien into something other than the stuff of schoolkids' nightmares, it has taken a 67-year-old cynic with a novelist's insight (or vice versa) and sense of irony to turn these ingredients into a readable narrative. For starters, the author's manner is breezy and informal--at one point he writes that Prime Minister Mack... View more info

Condition: Very Good Condition


Gerald Brenan's The Spanish Labyrinth has become the classic account of the background to the Spanish Civil War. Written during and immediately after the Civil War, this 1990 book has all the vividness of the author's experience. It represents a struggle to see the issues in Spanish politics objectively, whilst bearing witness to the deep involvement which is the only possible source of much of this richly detailed account. As a literary figure on the fringe of the Bloomsbury group, Gerald Brenan lends to this narrative an engaging personal style that has become familiar to many thousands of r... View more info
