Item Description: Charles L. Webster & Company, New York, 1885. Full Leather. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 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. The labels bear a little wear - one dark spot on the volume band of the second book, a wandering crack at the right edge of the volume band on the first book, and a few spots of gilt flaking - but remain bright and attractive. The pages of both volumes are clean except for one or two fingerprints in margins per volume; no ownership marks; a little mild toning in the margins, otherwise surprisingly bright; the fold-out reproduced letters in the first volume show tanning at the edges, a short, closed tear along one crease, and extra folding creases in four places, but the fold-out is otherwise intact; the facsimile at p. 497 in the second volume has a closed edge tear but is otherwise excellent, and the extended map at 632 has but one spot of foxing in the margin, otherwise lovely. Illustrated, primarily with maps, throughout both volumes; indexed in the second volume; 584pp. + 647pp. Bookseller Inventory # 039013

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: New York Charles L. Webster 1885, 1886, 1886. 2 volumes. First edition. With 49 maps and illustrations, including a portrait frontispiece and folding manuscript facsimile. Also with the dedication from Grant in holograph facsimile. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth lettered in gilt and with a gilt medallion on the upper covers, with floral endpapers. 584; 647, index pp. A very nice and honest set, internally quite clean though just a bit shaken, the green cloth still bright and unfaded, very minor edgewear confined primarily to the tips and with a few spots to the cloth covers, tear to the gutter side of the half-title of Vol I, hinges tight and strong. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF ‘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. 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.
