Five bound folio volumes, from April 27 1861 ['The Bombardment of Fort Sumter'] through April 28 1866, inclusive, covering the entire period of the Civil War and early Reconstruction, with thousands of illustrations, engravings, maps, cartoons. Some of these are folding. Contents are clean. One week's front wrapper absent, a couple of tape repairs. Else Near Fine. Bound in modern buckram. These copies belonged to Roy Hofheinz, with his name stamped in gilt on the front cover. Judge Hofheinz bought the Houston Colt .45s [later the Houston Astros] baseball franchise, and built the Astrodome, the first large covered baseball and football facility in the world. An extraordinarily thorough, dramatic, and well-illustrated documentation of the War, reporting all the action in detail, with remarkable illustrations and first-hand accounts of significant events. The presidential campaign of 1864 is also covered. There are numerous reports and stories on Sherman, Grant, other generals and leaders, battles, and movements that inexorably tightened the noose around the Confederacy. "The most popular periodical of its day and valuable for a study of any aspect of the war; the illustrations are unsurpassed." Nevins. Shipping will be charged at cost.FIRST EDITIONS. II Nevins 15.
