About this Item

Illustrations by Merritt Cutler. 8vo. Blue cloth, pictorial dust jacket. 481pp. Line drawings, maps. Near fine/very good. Jacket a bit edgeworn, with a few small edge chips and an age toned spine. Top of jacket front flap bears a printed 3" X 1" title label affixed, correcting an altered subtitle inadvertently printed on the flap ("The Iron Age of the Republic, 1861-1865.") -- and presumably corrected in later printings. Scarce first edition, tight and quite handsome, of this overview that E.B. Long describes thusly: "With an awareness that this book contains errors and distortions, it is one of the more readable military histories." A superb copy in the seldom-seen jacket. NEVINS II, 25.
