Original purple cloth, 279 pages including a 44 page appendix being correspondence between Portugal and the U.S. Secretary of State. This copy was presumably owned by Lord John Russell, the British Foreign Secretary during the Civil War (and later Prime Minister) upon his creation as the first Earl Russell, Viscount Amberley although it is possible that the signator "Amberley, January, 1867" was that of the Prime Minister's eldest son (also named John). The volume comprises the Prime Mintister's correspondence while he was Foreign Secretary with United States Ambassador Charles Francis Adams concerning the building and equipping of the Confederate Cruiser "Alabama" and other ships whose depredations on Federal shipping was the source of the "Alabama Claims". The Prime Minister oversaw the publication of the correspondence in order to correct misrepesentations in the British and American press that the CSS Alabama and her sister raiders, including the CSS Shenendoah were built with the connivance of the British government to attack Union shipping in contravention of The Laws of War thus exposing the British government to the claims of losses caused by the raiders. There is fading to the covers with mild edgewear at the spine ends and corners. An old English bookseller's label from Cambridge, England and a distinctive 19th Century bookplate are on the front pastedown. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 1819
