A collection of the entire Civil War, from Sumter to Appomattox, including pen and pencil drawings, watercolors, and tempera paintings. 4to, publisher’s original brown buckram over beige cloth boards, the spine boldly gilt lettered, in the original dustjacket. 400 pp. A very fine copy, bright and clean copy. The dust jacket very good with some light wear to the extremeties. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION OF CIVIL WORD DRAWINGS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN 4 VOLUMES BY CENTURY CO IN 1888. Due to the techniques of engraving of the time, the original edition simplified the drawings and printed them on a smaller scale which lost much of the detail. American Heritage acquired the collection of original photographs and has identified every picture by scene, and all but 9 of the 50 artists. "I can say without reservation that these drawings constitute the single most important collection of Civil War art to be discovered in this century." - Harold Peterson. Bookseller Inventory # 23666
