About this Item

Small 4to. Red and white cloth, pictorial dust jacket. 272pp. Frontispiece, illustrations, map. Very good/very good. Quite minor jacket edgewear. Tight and handsome first edition -- with a choice autograph addition: Laid into the original mailing envelope (which is tipped to an inner flyleaf) is a Typed Letter Signed from Keller, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, NY, 1961 September 26. Addressed to .noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar ARNOLD F. GATES (1914-93). Very good. Carbon copy of a letter to Civil War Round Table of New York vice president Thomas J. Mullins (to which Gates' was "cc"d) transmitting biographical data about himself, likely connected with an appearance of Keller before this distinguished group -- a mini-biography of sorts. Boldly signed in full in red ballpoint -- as is the envelope, which bears the printed "New York World-Telegram" masthead return address. Warren W. Hassler Jr. calls this study "A thin but colorfully written narrative of the 1863 raid into Ohio by John Hunt Morgan." NEVINS I, 34. Bookseller Inventory # 33367
