Hard Cover. This extremely popular and historically important periodical provides a comprehensive and detailed record of American history and culture in the 19th century. These five volumes include the issues from March 1861 to December 1865, the entire period of the Civil War, and Lincoln';s assassination just weeks after the end of the war. Each issue reports the war';s events of the previous week and there are thousands of illustrations. This is almost a complete run. Two issues from January 1866 are bound into the 1864 volume and there are three repeat issues in 1864 as well. Five issues are missing from 1863. The interior is in very good condition with a few defects: a damaged map, a few loose pages in one of the volumes, and creases to the free front endpaper and the first pages of the first issue bound in the volume. The volume for 1861 is missing pages 713-716 and there is a torn foldout map of the Southern states. The volume for 1865 has a few loose pages and a tear through page 44. Otherwise, except for occasional foxing and aging, the set is in very good condition. Four of the large folio volumes are bound in contemporary half leather with brown or black cloth covers. The fifth volume is in half leather with battered paper boards. All of the volumes show nicks and bumping but are in reasonably good condition.
