Title: Personal Memoirs of P.H. Sheridan, General ...
Publisher: Charles L. Webster & Company, New York
Publication Date: 1888
Edition: 1st Edition
Second volume (only) of two-volume set. Small 4to. Green cloth with gilt spine and pictorial gilt front cover. xi, 486pp. Frontispiece, illustrations, maps (including seven foldouts), decorative endpapers. Very good. Almost but not quite a "Near fine," with only slight bit of edgewear, a bit more so at corners and at head and tail of spine. A tight, clean, attractive first edition of the second volume of the famed Union general's memoir. The other "shoulderstrap editions" (so-called because of the gilt-and-black epaulette on each spine) -- Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman -- are far more common than the Sheridan set, which is legitimately scarce in clean, tight collector's condition. The front cover pictorial gilt depicting a hat-waving Sheridan astride his galloping horse is bright and fresh, and the foldout maps are pristine, appearing to have never been unfurled. An ideal companion to a superb orphaned first volume. Bookseller Inventory # 29178
