Description:

Second edition (preceded by an 1884 edition) INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR. 491 pages. Hardcover: H 21.25cm x L 14.5cm. Original dark brown cloth; front board decorated with image of soldier stamped in blue with black lettering; spine with black and gilt stamping. Some staining along both boards' fore-edge margins with light wear at bottom corners; spine ends lightly scuffed. Text block edges well toned; toning to interior leaves throughout with occasional foxing as well; top corner of pages 375-376 creased from past fold-down. Unfortunately one quire encompassing pages 161-176 is detached from rest of text block and now just laid-in; binding is otherwise firm. Author's nine-line ink inscription on first front flyleaf: "Phil Hansen | from his friend | F.Y. Hedley | Decoration Day, 1894. | Dear Phil: You are doing | well. Keep on as well as you | have begun, and you will be | as good a man as your father | was." (Hedley's handwriting appears to have the inscribee's surname as "Hanson" but a laid-in at front endpapers is a 1939 postcard addressed to a "Mr. + Mrs. Phil C. Hansen" with the husband recorded in the 1930 census as being born in Illinois in 1878 which explains the paternalistic tone of the author's inscription for Hansen would have only been 16 at the time of the book's presentation.) Else a good copy of a classic Civil War title written, of course, from the Yankee soldier perspective. Laid-in between pages 68-69 is an invitation for an church 1899 Easter service and between 106-107 is a poem clipped from the Monday, November 20, 1865 The Democrat (a St. Louis newspaper) with a more interesting collection of employment ads on its verso including one for U.S. Regular Cavalry recruiting for 1000 men. This book was acquired from a Tuscaloosa, Alabama estate from a family with long roots in Macoupin County, Illinois which is the same area where Fenwick Yellowley Hedley (1844-1924) settled after his Civil War service and started his career as a newspaper reporter for the Union Gazette of Bunker Hill, Illinois. By 1867 Hedley purchased the paper and renamed it the Bunker Hill Gazette which he operated through 1898 where after he resided briefly in St. Louis and Kansas City before settling in Brooklyn, New York where he died in 1924. Hedley first enlisted in the Union Army in August 1861 and, upon the expiration of his initial service, he re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer and was awarded a commission as a lieutenant assigned to the assistant adjutant general staff of the Army of the Tennessee, Fourth Division, 3rd Brigade. It was in this role where Hedley garnered his impressions of General Sherman's March to the Sea with the campaigns in Georgia and the Carolinas. Bookseller Inventory #
