Book Company Publishing LLC (BCP) of Los Angeles is reviving an entire series of out-of-print classics that will bring scores of famous historical figures back to life for a new generation of readers.
As a result, a full line of definitive biographies about fascinating historical figures ranging from Betsy Ross to Alexander Hamilton to Sacajawea will soon be back in print. The originals are considered classics, but most have been unavailable or unaffordable to the reading public for years, until now.
The first title in the new series, Nancy Hanks Lincoln: A Frontier Portrait is considered the definitive biography of Abraham Lincolnís mother. It was originally published in 1952 by Bookman Associates of New York, and quickly became a standard reference work for U.S. History. But it lapsed out-of-print years ago, making clean copies hard to find or very expensive. But now, an affordable new trade paperback (and a special large print edition from UP) will finally be readily available once again to students, researchers, genealogists and history buffs.
Additional titles are listed below, alphabetically by author. Most are enlarged text paperbacks, ideal for schoolchildren and readers with limited vision, but also suitable for everyday use. These special editions are NOT available in bookstores, or from other online booksellers!
