About this Item

16mo. Newly rebound in quarter black calf and tan marbled paper over boards, gilt spine. 326pp. Illustration. Fine/very good. Binding is fine -- superbly crafted and tasteful -- while text block from title page through final text page is lightly age toned, with the occasional bit of fixing and mild edgewear. Overall a quite attractive second printing of this 1865 "Story of the Great Rebellion," being the fifth volume in Optic's six-volume series "The Army and Navy Stories." In a preface, Adams makes a point of noting that "This volume. is not a biography of the distinguished soldier whose sobriquet in the army has been chosen as its principal title, though the prominent incidents of his military career are noticed in its pages." A beautiful copy. Bookseller Inventory # 31911
