Title: THE FIRST YEAR OF THE WAR.
Publisher: Richmond: West & Johnston
Publication Date: 1862
Binding: Soft cover
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: 1st Edition
374pp. The true first edition. There were three subsequent Confederate printings as well as a New York edition, with a spurious West & Johnston title page. The phony one is always in boards. This one, the genuine article, has its original printed yellow wraps, sewn as issued. Some dogearing, small chips outer corners front wrap. Amazingly, printed spine title present. A very nice copy of this thick wrappered account of the first year of the war from a Confederate view. NEVINS II, 175: ‘The first popular history of the war from a Confederate point of view. Pollard’s works are seriously marred by venomous anti-Davis feeling and bitter anti-Northern prejudice.’ CRANDALL 2643. DORNBUSCH III, 234. HARWELL, CONFEDERATE HUNDRED 67. HOWES P-449. NICHOLSON p.654. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 4990. Hughes Books issues 4-5 printed catalogs per year. If you'd care to be on our mailing list, just ask at email@example.com.
