Tight, nice first edition of this tale of (to quote front jacket panel) "The U.S.S. Monitor -- Its Battle with The Merrimack and Its Recent Discovery" -- with a fine autograph addition: Tipped to the front flyleaf is a nice Typed Letter Signed from Hoehling (1910-2004), 1p, 8½" X 9", Cape Elizabeth, Maine, 1958 November 6. Addressed to noted Lincoln scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Near fine. Interesting Civil War content: "Shelby Semmes. is the daughter of Tom Semmes, living at the Stuyvesant village address noted. Tom is mentioned in Last Train. and is the only living child of Joe Semmes, the Confed. quartermaster oft' quoted in the tome. Hell, far as I know, he's the last living closely direct link to people involved in that siege." Signed simply "Dolph" -- Hoehling's nickname among friends. With a handwritten postscript regarding Semmes: "About 92 yrs. old & very active." Hoehling authored the popular 1958 title "Last Train from Atlanta." A surprisingly uncommon autograph.
