Item Description: New York Charles L. Webster and Co. 1885, 1886, 1886. 2 volumes. First edition of both volumes in publisher’s deluxe bindings. With 49 maps and illustrations, including two steel-engraved frontis-portraits and two etched views, all with tissue-guards. Also with fold out manuscript facsimile and the dedication from Grant in holograph facsimile. Tall, thick 8vo, publisher’s very scarce deluxe bindings of original three-quarter morocco over boards, gilt lettered and finely decorated with gilt emblematic decorations including a General's stars in compartments of the spines separated by raised bands, each of the covers featuring large gilt medallions, endpapers and all edges marbled. 584; 647, index. An especially bright and very pleasing set in the scarce publisher’s deluxe binding state. An unusually well preserved set, the text exceptionally clean and fresh, volume two with some minor rubbing on the upper cover. RARE FIRST EDITION IN PLEASING STATE OF PRESERVATION. VERY SCARCE IN THIS FORMAT, CONDITION AND DELUXE BINDING STATE. ‘THE FINEST MEMOIRS OF WAR EVER PENNED’. An important historical memoir of the Civil War, arguably the most important, and the best thing that Grant ever wrote. General Norman Schwartzkopf has recently called this the finest memoir of war experiences that has ever been penned. Collectible copies of these books are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Copies in this binding, especially so. The earliest days of the Civil War were a hard lesson in hubris for the Union Army. After the appointment of Grant to overall command of the Union forces, the war would quickly turn to their favor. Probably the most important book on the American Civil War, and in many respects a masterpiece of American literature. David Eicher"s useful summary includes this fine judgment: "Grant’s MEMOIRS comprise one of the most valuable writings by a military commander in history . . . The work is genuinely that of the commander. As such, it is valuable in its scope, its plain and clear analysis and language, and its broad conclusions about the conduct of the war. "In the years following the war Grant would move into the political arena, even against his best judgment and would, with great public acclaim be elected President of United States for two full terms.

Item Description: Webster and Co. 1885, 1886, New York, 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine Set. Illustrated (illustrator). First Edition. Octavo, 584/647pp., Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spines. This is the deluxe 3/4 morocco publisher's binding. Old name in ink. An excellent clean set with marbled end papers and outside edges. Gilt stamped portrait medallion of Grant on front covers. Nice bright set. One of the better sets of the memoirs we have seen in years. Contents are clean in both. Engraved frontispiece with tissue guard in each volume, numerous maps, engravings, gatefold facsimile of the original Terms of Lee's Surrender as written by General Grant opposite page 496 of volume has a small tear, which is common with this set. That document was printed on extremely fragile paper and is often found torn. Also includes the printed inscription by Grant that " These volumes are dedicated the the American Soldier and Sailor. New York City ~ May 23, 1885 " Many people mistakenly believe sets of this are actually inscribed by Grant. Grant died just days after the manuscript was turned over to the publisher, and never lived to see the work in book form, let alone inscribe any copies of it. This binding format is probably the most desirable after the full morocco leather edition. Very scarce in presentable condition. Bookseller Inventory # 025559

Grant’s autobiography recounts the campaigns and battles in which he participated during the Mexican-American War and the American Civil War.

Two volumes (published in 1885 and 1886), each with tissue-guarded frontispiece portrait and marbled page block edges, newly rebound in blind-tooled full calf with the original marbled endpapers and spine labels reapplied.

Item Description: Montreal [and] Toronto Dawson Brothers [and] Rose Publishing Company 1886, 1886. 2 volumes. First edition, Canadian Issue in the same visual format as the American issue but for the medallions on the covers. With 49 maps and illustrations, including a portrait frontispiece. Also with the dedication from Grant in holograph facsimile. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover as in the U.S. issue. 584; 647, index. A pleasing and solid copy, clean and tight with only light aging to the cloth. The gilt is still quite bright, the textblocks are in good order. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. An important historical memoir of the Civil War, and the best thing that Grant ever wrote. General Schwartzkopf has recently called this the finest memoir of war experiences that has ever been penned. Collectable copies of these books are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. The earliest days of the Civil War were a hard lesson in hubris for the Union Army. After the appointment of Grant to command the Union forces, the war would quickly turn to their favor. In the years following the war Grant would become President of United States. Bookseller Inventory # 20482

Item Description: Charles L. Webster & Company, New York, 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First edition, green cloth binding. Volume I published in 1885, 584 pages. Volume II published in 1886, 647 pages plus a listing of Errata from Volume I. Ulysses S. Grant is arguably one of the most important generals in U.S. History, at times referred to as "the man who saved the Union" for both his military leadership and his subsequent service as the 18th President of the United States. Some believe that Mark Twain assisted Grant in the final days of writing these memoirs shortly before his death in 1885, others say they are "pure Grant" and Twain only assisted in the publication. Either way, these memoirs are a critical part of understanding Ulysses S. Grant from the time of his earliest military service during the Mexican War, his subsequent military service including his time on the West Coast and in California, through the end of the Civil War. ***DESCRIPTION: Green cloth boards with facsimile in gilt of the gold medal awarded to Grant in 1863 (to celebrate his victories in the Vicksburg campaign, which gave the Union Army control over the entire Mississippi and split the Confederacy in two), gilt lettering on front and spine, general's four stars on black on the spine, decorated endpapers, two different frontispieces showing Grant in his youth and middle age, several maps (some folding) and reproductions of documents throughout. ***CONDITION: Overall both volumes are in near fine condition, with strong, square text blocks, solid hinges (the hinges of Volume I were recently professionally strengthened), gilt medallions unusually bright, the interiors bright and clean with barely a hint of foxing, the only prior owner marking being a vintage name in flowing ink on the flyleaf of Volume I with the date 1886. There is minor wear to the head and tail of both spines, minor rubbing to the corners, and Volume II has a small white spot on the front board (please see pictures and request additional if necessary). ***CITATION: The Union Bookshelf 35. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Bookseller Inventory # 13122802
