Original green cloth with title and front panel in gilt. In excellent condition with some light wear. Comes with a letter written by Grant dated a month after the conclusion of the Civil War. The Letter is addressed to Grant's old childhood friend J. Russell Jones, who would later become President Grant's Resident Minister in Belgium. The letter reads, "Dear Jones, As I now have a home where I expect my family to remain for a time, and to be with them occasionally, I want to collect what evidence I have of ownership of worldy goods. Will you be kind enough to send me, addressed to Mrs. Grant, my 5-20 bonds, certificates of Horne railroad stocks and the sword which I believe you have. When you come east you must make your stay always at my house. I hope to pay a visit to Chicago and the west soon but cannot set the time now. Yours truly U.S. Grant. Phila Pa May 4th 1865." "Grant's memoirs comprise one of the most valuable writings by a military commander in history" (Eicher 492). "The best memoirs of any general's since Caesar" (Mark Twain). "A unique expression of the national character.[Grant] has conveyed the suspense which was felt by himself and his army and by all who believed in the Union cause. The reader finds himself.on edge to know how the Civil War is coming out" (Edmund Wilson). Bookseller Inventory # 1837

Item Description: New York: Charles L. Webster & Co., 1885-6, 1885. 2 volumes, octavo. Publisher's superior full sheepskin binding, red and dark blue morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Rubbing to board edges and spines, a few trivial scratches to covers, light toning to some early leaves, but a very good set indeed in the attractive, but fragile, original deluxe binding. Engraved portrait frontispiece, one etched plate and one folding facsimile to each, 47 full-page plans in all, folding map at the rear of volume II. First edition. Mark Twain was resounding in his praise of Grant's prose: "this is the simple soldier, who, all untaught of the silken phrase-makers, linked words together with an art surpassing the art of the schools and put into them a something which will still bring to American ears, as long as America shall last, the roll of his vanished drums and the tread of his marching hosts." That Twain was essentially the publisher of the work should not entirely devalue his judgement. Grant's autobiography sold over 300,000 sets and has remained continually in print since its first appearance. Bookseller Inventory # 86799

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.

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.
