Beschreibung

Three hardcover volumes, the first being dated 1865, with the other two dated 1866. The Civil War from a British viewpoint. Bound in marbled paper over boards with 3/4 black leather. Five raised bands. Gilt lettering in two compartments, and a small gilt decoration in four compartments, with a tiny gilt decoration and "London 1865" (or "1866") at the bottom. Marbled edges and endpapers. 453, 445 and 549 pages. Volume I covers 1861-1862. Volume II is 1862-1863, while Volume III is called "Third and Fourth Years of the War." All maps are present. In Volume I, except for the preliminaries and rear blanks (which are foxed in all volumes), the pages are of a different texture from that of the other two, and while they are clean and unfoxed, are not as "white." The plates are also clean and unfoxed in this volume. In the other two, while the plates (maps) are present, they are invariably foxed, along with the facing pages, and the paper is noticeably whiter. There is a tiny number sticker in the upper corner of each front endpaper (presumably from someone's private library?). Other than that, and the foxing problem with the preliminaries, blanks and maps, the contents are very good, clean and tight. The bindings show quite heavy edgewear and scuffing, with the rear edge of the spine on Volume II beginning to split. All three are sound. Volume II is signed (more or less) with the ink inscription on the half-title page, "With the Author's Compliments." Since I can't really think that someone else wrote that, I assume that Lieut.Col. Fletcher did, but just didn't feel it was necessary to sign his name. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 005189
