Ridings, William J., Jr. and Stuart B. McIver (1997-49)
Rating the Presidents (rule) A Ranking of U.S. Leaders, From the Great and Honorable to the Dishonest and Incompetent William J. Ridings, Jr. and Stuart B. McIver A Citadel Press Book Published by Carol Publishing Group [Secaucus, NJ, 1997]
Book, cloth, 9-1/4" x 6-1/4", x (2) p., 306 pp., illus. $22.95. An interesting book that ranks the Presidents, from Washington to Clinton, on leadership qualities, accomplishments and crisis management, political skill, appointments, character and integrity, and a composite or overall ranking. Rankings were developed by polling several hundred academicians from colleges and universities nationwide. Only 3% of those polled were non-academics, as the general population were judged to be unable to place presidential performance in a historical context (ahem!). While results will please students of Abraham Lincoln, some may disagree with the evaluation of later presidents due to a perceived liberal bias of the sample.

Silvers, Robert, Michael Hawley, editor (1997-63)
Photomosaics Robert Silvers Edited by Michael Hawley An Owl Book · Henry Holt and Company · New York [1997]
Book, paper, 12" x 9", xii p., 81 pp., illus. To call this book "Lincolniana," is quite a stretch-even by my standards. It is a collection of "photomosaics," illustrations created by combining thousands of small photographs. On pages 12-15, one will find a portrait of Lincoln composed of numerous other Civil War images. It must really be seen to be believed. I include it in this listing in the hope that this remarkable image will not be lost to future Lincoln devotees.
