Burlingame's Lincoln

In an interview late last year, Lincoln scholar Michael Burlingame updated us on the progress of his now 4-volume AL biography. The following publishing options were being considered at the time: all four volumes in 2008 or two volumes each in 2007/2008.

Obviously, the latter option is unlikely at this point, and I still can find no mention of the set on the Johns Hopkins University Press website [perhaps it's there, but I cannot see it]. This dearth of news is very strange, as Burlingame's magnum opus is highly anticipated and kind of a big deal.

    The bug crusher is now $125.00.

    and this:

    "Drawing on a vast amount of new research, Lincoln scholar Burlingame has written the best biography of the 16th president to appear in many decades. This two-volume boxed set will supplant Carl Sandburg's as the authoritative work on Lincoln's life."
