About this Item

Original light green cloth, decorated in blind. 446 pp, plus 8 pages of ads in the rear and a decorative half-title. With a few in text illustrations, as well as several full page illustrated plates. A history of military action in the United States, from the Revolutionary War and including actions in Africa, the Tippecanoe War, the War of 1812, the Black Hawk's War and the Seminole Wars. Unfortunately in POOR condition. MISSING two front endpapers, with the illustrated half-title DETACHED and laid in. The binding and interior hinges are very shaky, with cracking in several sections including at the front and rear cover hinges (beginning to separate as well in those locales). Many of the signatures are beginning to come loose, although all are presently intact, albeit weakly. Heavy fading to the covers, with scattered spotted discoloration, minor spots of staining and minor to moderate soiling. Spine sunned. Minor rippling to the cloth on the rear cover. Some scuffing, bumping and fraying along the extremities, especially to the head and foot of the spine. Minor scattered soiling and foxing to the interior, with a tear present to the lower corners of pages 192 and 193, resulting in minor loss of text. Dampstaining present to the half-title. Sabin 26024. Bookseller Inventory # 003675
