Book 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 # 025501

Book Description: New York: Charles L. Webster & Co., 1885-6, 1885. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown half morocco, spines gilt in compartments with patriotic shield tools, brown cloth sides, portrait roundel to each upper board, marbled endpapers and edges Boards very lightly rubbed at extremities, some small marks to cloth of volume II. An excellent set. 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.

Book 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 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.

Book Description: Charles Webster and Company, New York, 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Grant's Memoirs are a classic, with a sort of down home eloquence and touches of with that remind some people of his old friend Mark Twain. For example, in looking back upon his early school days, he wrote that he'd so often been told that "a noun was the name of a thing" that he eventually came to believe it. A very special copy of this wonderful book. Bookseller Inventory # 000002

Book Description: Webster and Co., New York, 1892. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine Set. Illustrated (illustrator). Second Edition. Octavo, 584/647pp., Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spines. Original green cloth publisher's binding. Identical in appearance to the 1885 first edition and much more scarce. A nice set with patterned end papers. Gilt stamped portrait medallion of Grant on front covers. Just a few scuffs on the edges and small spots on the binding. Tiny frayed spot at head of one spine. The facsimile of the terms of Lee's surrender opposite page 496 of volume two is torn, which is not uncommon with this set. That document was printed on extremely fragile paper. Hinges nice and firm. A bright presentable clean set. One of the better sets we've seen. 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. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 021592
