This eclectic collection of "essential" information circa 1925. Interesting as much as a cultural artifact as for the information it contains. Leads to compulsive browsing. ( )

Dedication
First words
The Lincoln Library of Essential Information has been prepared with two controlling ideas in view. One has been to embody in a single volume the largest amount of helpful information for the average reader that has ever been placed between two covers. The other aim has been to select, condense, arrange, and verify this material with a degree of thoroughness and accuracy much greater than has ever been attained in any work of similar scope.
