Kunhardt lifts Ostendorf's thumbnail view
I had an opportunity to see some of the new books on Abraham Lincoln that have hit the shelves. Seems the same old chronologies are being rehashed. The Meserve collection, now some 100 years old is once again being recycled. Everytime I see the Kunhardt book I wonder if Lloyd Ostendorf can sue for violation of copywright(of course they'd have to bring him to life again..). Wonder if any of his family checks out the competition. Thumbnail images of the black and white Lincoln photos... wasn't that done already?
