First edition. Octavo in brick colored cloth lettered in gilt. Frontispiece photographic portrait of Sumner. 504 pp. plus publisher's ads at rear. A tight example, gilt stamping bright and a touch of wear at the spine extremities. Laid in is a single sheet folded handwritten letter (written on two sides) from Sumner dated at Washington, May 12, 1863 and signed in full. Sumner's handwriting is almost indecipherable but it appears that the letter concerns a government army appointment. Letter is bright and crisp, two small punch holes at the top apparently from insertion into a binder. (Please note: not being a reference library, we do not provide full scans or photocopies of manuscript materials). Bookseller Inventory # E13844
