About this Item

388pp. First edition. Limited to 500 copies. Neatly inscribed in ink on front free endpaper to Pulitzer Prize winning historian Dumas Malone: ‘For Dumas Malone with warm regards from Cecil Johnson, one of his first graduate students, editor of this volume, grandson of John Lipscomb Johnson.’ Original cloth, fine, in a near-fine dust jacket sporting only two very tiny edge tears. I doubt this could be upgraded. A chaplain in the 17th Virginia Infantry, Johnson, was wounded at Blackburn’s Ford and spent the remainder of the war running a hospital near Lynchburg. Raised at Forest Hill Plantation in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, Johnson studied at the University of Virginia and gives an excellent picture of antebellum life there as well as much about the prewar world of the Old Dominion. More interesting, perhaps, is the account of his tenure after the war at the University of Mississippi. Not in NEVINS. DORNBUSCH IV, 8041. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-10618362439
