About this Item

752 pgs. plus 4 pgs. adverts. Rare original printing of the classic history of the Confederacy in the Civil War, in a contemporary full-calf binding with attached NYC binder ticket. Corners and spine title are overlaid in a darker calf. The binding as a whole has significant uniform edge wear breaking thru to the boards in spots. Despite clear wear and usage, this original binding is still intact and serviceable, and a gilt spine title remains, with a couple scratches thereto. Recessed faux-bands and full marbled edges were used, in the style of deluxe nineteenth century bookbinding work. Internally there is no foxing, and the engraved plates are excellent, mostly guarded with original tissues. Slight blemish on the Lee steel-plate engraving from tissue sticking to it during production. Though available in many subsequent reprints, this original copy of the 'subscription' first printing is not often seen for sale. Photo on request. Bookseller Inventory # 523

Store Description

The "Old Book Surfer" store was started in 2009 near downtown Schenectady N.Y., in the "Bellevue" neighborhood first settled by General Electric and Alco Locomotive workers who built a small canal town into a mighty engine of U.S. industry. In 2014 we relocated to our present larger quarters in Cambridge, NY. Our literary and general interest bookstore also offers Recorded Music on vinyl to a collector clientele. We try to describe every internet item -- book or record -- as clearly as possible, just as if you were viewing it personally in the shop. With 20 years of collecting experience in our fields, we welcome you as either an on-line or in-store visitor! Our current business hours are Wed.-Sun., from 1-6pm, eastern time.
