Subtitled, Personal Adventures of Corporal Pike, of the Fourth Ohio Cavalry, as a Texas Ranger in the Indian Wars, Delineating Western Adventure; Afterward a Scout and Spy in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas, Under General Mitchell, Rosecrans, Stanley, Sheridan, Lytle, Thomas, Crook, and Sherman, Fully Illustrating the Secret Service. From the text, "But I cannot but believe that my adventures in that most dangerous and romantic of all branches of the service--while acting the part of a scout-during the late long and bloody war against the most gigantic rebellion known to history, will be read with interest, not only by the patriotic people of the loyal states, for whom my life was risked, but by thousands in the South--violent rebels--who will, in these pages first recognize me, in my true character, as a soldier of the Union; though oft I have partaken of their hospitalities, and been their familiar companion; and many a rebel officer will, in the following narrative, for the first time learn that they have communicated much valuable information to one who was in the service of the nation against which they had arrayed the whole power, and chivalry of half a score of powerful and flourishing states, extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the thirty-seventh parallel of north latitude." See Rader #2671, Sabin #62818, Graff #3286, Nevins, Vol. I, pg. 146, and Howes P-369. This copy contains the errata page and the frontis portrait showing the author's hair parted on the right, thus it appears to be a variant not noted by Howes and might be an earlier issue, or later. Very scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 018617
