This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published before 1923. This IS NOT an OCR'd book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, have elected to bring it back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.

A major part of the book involves the development of the telegraph. Good news - You can still get free 2-day shipping, free pickup, & more. There is also a lot of very (very) interesting information about the use of codes in the transmission of war correspondence. This is the source of the (possible) myth that Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation in the telegraph office.

I have never seen such poor print quality in my life. I bought this as a present and ordered another edition. The publisher should be embarrassed. It looks like some intern photocopied the original, blew up the print and used the worst resolution for the images. I have had the pleasure of reading the original. This was a ridiculous facsimile. What century are we in???

It's one of the best narratives about Lincoln I have ever read, but the reproduction quality of the text and photographs are poor. None of the photographs are clear enough to make out who is in the photo.

Did not learn much other than Lincoln spent some time in the telegraph office.
Enjoyed reading this book. It contained new information for me.
