Original leather, somewhat worn around the edges but with a square tight binding. One of the first, classic, histories of the War of 1812, this particular volume is fantastic. Sprinkled on both sets of end papers is the name of Daniel Hicks, with dates ranging from 1816-1818, leaving no doubt that this volume was well used by a fun-loving gentleman in the waning days of the Federal Period. Pages a bit tanned. Original Leather spine label a bit tough to read but fully intact. Bookseller Inventory #
