Red cloth. 331, 370 pp. With black and white illustrations in both volumes. A detailed firsthand account of Washburne's time in France from 1869-1877, chronicling, in depth, the Franco-Prussian War as witnessed in Paris, the lengthy siege of Paris, the fall of the Second French Empire and the rise and rule of the Paris Commune. Elihu Washburne was a politician from Maine, serving briefly as US Secretary of State before serving as Minister to France. During this stint, he was responsible for maintaining diplomatic and humanitarian support during the Franco-Prussian War. GOOD condition. Uneven general fading and minor to moderate uneven darkening, heavier to the spine. Minor soiling and scattered spotted staining to the covers, most noticeable to the spines and rear covers. Mostly minor scuffing. Cloth torn along the lower rear hinge of volume 2, with a 1 ½ inch horizontal tear at the top of this tear, resulting in a flap of cloth beginning to lift off. Cloth chipped and worn at the spine tips, with some loss, with heavy scuffing, bumping and fraying to the corners. Text blocks solid, with minor toning to the paper. Bookseller Inventory #
