Title: The Life of Ulysses S. Grant, ...
Publisher: E.B. Treat & Co., New York
Publication Date: 1868
Edition: 1st Edition
8vo. Original blind-embossed green cloth, gilt spine. xv, 458pp, (6pp ads). Frontispiece, map, 4 full-page plates. Good plus. Mild general wear and bit of edgewear at head and tail of spine; bit of age age toning and some foxing to preliminary leaves; marks to both pastedowns from removal of bookplates. A tight and quite decent first edition of this biography of the then-presidential candidate. Despite wear, a most respectable, handleable copy, with spine gilt bright and readable and all tissue guards present. This is the true first edition, though an enlarged edition issued in 1885 upon his death is often mistakenly referred to as a first. Bookseller Inventory # 34143
