Small 4to. Two-volume set. Black cloth with gilt spine lettering. ix, 1115pp; 581pp. Good plus. Internally white, bright and tight; externally, the bindings are well-handled and rubbed and a bit soiled and mottled, with spine gilt heavily rubbed.

These two hefty volumes contain Chapter XXXII of the overall set, described on the contents page as "Operations in Kentucky, Middle and East Tennessee, North Alabama, and Southwest Virginia. November 1, 1862 -- January 20, 1863." Part I consists of "Reports" and Part II of "Correspondence, Etc." First edition. Though homely, this pair is tight and quite handleable. Bookseller Inventory #
