About this Item

Backed in red cloth with pebbled green boards and printed pastedown on the front cover; contemporary manuscript note at the bottom of the title pastedown: "Sold by Starke and Cardozo Richmond VA"; offsetting at the endpaper and adjacent leaves, but largely free of foxing throughout; rippling to the boards suggests moisture exposure though the textblock is free of tidelines; folding frontispiece figure; in-text figures throughout. The Memphis edition is without the suite of engravings. Inscription to the front pastedown reads: "To C. Ellis Munford, from T. H. Ellis, 6th June 1861." Charles Ellis Munford, Lt. Letcher Light Artillery, CSA, was killed at the battle of Malvern Hill, 1 July 1862. Charles was the son of George Wythe Munford, clerk to the House of Delegates and Secretary of the Commonwealth during the Civil War. Charles’s uncle, Thomas Harding Ellis, who presented this book, was the boyhood friend of Edgar Allan Poe (Thomas's father and Edgar's foster father where business partners until 1824). While this association is the highlight of most brief biographical sketches, Ellis had a much more meaningful life. He was a graduate of the University of Virginia and an active if not founding member of the UVA Alumni Society. He was an engaged and civic minded businessman. He spent time in the family firm, a successor of the Ellis & Allan Tobacco Company. In 1853 he succeeded John Young Mason as the president of the James River & Kanawha Canal Company up to and (at Governor John Letcher's request) throughout the Civil War. During this time he also served as a colonel of the Richmond Home Guards. He was a member of the Virginia Historical Society, an occasional contributor to the Southern Literary Messenger and the Southern Historical Society Papers, and first president of the Hollywood Cemetery Company. Both Ellis and Munford are buried in Hollywood Cemetery. A unique association copy of this book. Parrish & Willingham 4864. Bookseller Inventory # 2844
