"Marvelous... The collection is important not only for the subject matter of Lincoln but for showing what the life of the law, indeed of the society, was in nineteenth-century America... Documentary editing at the highest level." Phillip Shaw Paludan, Journal of American History "Extraordinary in every sense of that much overused word... No publication -- past, present, or future -- will rival this one in terms of its breadth and depth of detail... This documentary edition is a prototype for the future of both documentary editing and scholarly research." -- Timothy Walch, Journal of Illinois History
