Frémont, pathmarker of the West by Allan Nevins( Book )

39 editions published between 1928 and 1992 in English and held by 3,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most controversial and romantic figures in American history, John C. Fremont experienced a dizzying succession of public triumphs and humiliations. He made his name exploring the West, surveying, mapping, and describing the Rockies, Great Basin, and Oregon country. Allan Nevins gives Fremont full credit for his achievements as a topographer, soldier, and politician while noting how often his rashness attracted enemies and led to his downfall: to a court-martial for disobeying orders during the Bear Flag Rebellion, to a disastrous winter expedition in the San Juan Mountains, to his defeat as the first presidential candidate of the Republican party, to the loss of his Civil War command. Through sickness and health, poverty and wealth, his wife, the vivacious Jessie Benton Fremont, stood by him. Their enduring romance occupies much more than the background in this absorbing story of his life."--Jacket

The life and writings of Abraham Lincoln by Abraham Lincoln( Book )

21 editions published between 1940 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln, the greatest of all American presidents, left us a vast legacy of writings, some of which are among the most famous in our history. Lincoln was a marvelous writer--from his humblest letter to his greatest speeches, including his inaugural addresses, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address. His sentences were so memorably crafted that many resonate across the years. [...] In 1940, the prolific author and historian Philip Van Doren Stern produced this volume as a guide to Lincoln's life through his writings. [...] Stern has collected all the essential texts of Lincoln's public life, from his first public address--a stump speech in New Salem, Illinois, in 1832 for an election he went on to lose--to his last piece of public writing, a pass to a congressman who was to visit the president the day after Lincoln went to Ford's Theater on April 14, 1865. Some 275 such documents are collected and placed in their historical context. --From dust jacket
