To check out my Mom's rare books. She has several Civil War , including this one in a different cover.To see my other old books. The Foundation and Formation of the Confederacy..... Campaigns, Battles, Sieges, Charges, Skirmishes, Etc...... Edited by Ben La Bree. Courier Journal Job Printing Co. Size is apx 16" by 12".
Profusely illustrated - almost every page has an illustration [or several]! If I had to guess- I would say about 1,000 pictures.
I could have spent more time to find the very best pictures to post, but there's so many! Well worth taking a minute to see the one that. Including the wonderful color frontis & color flags, along with full size portrait of Jefferson Davis and Robert E Lee, among others.
Several pictures from photographs including the room where Stonewall Jackson died. PLEASE FORGIVE THE FLASH SPOTS - it is printed on nice shiny paper! Contents: If it had to do with the Civil War - it is probably in here! Photos carefully as they are part of the description. Text and boards secure but lightly cracked in one area [picture with pen pointing to it].
The back side of the frontis is also taped. Some wear to the outside [tips, spine ends, etc]. Back cover looks just ok - a few spots and some discoloration.
Amateur job repairing the top and the bottom of the spine. [bottom doesn't look too bad].
Inner hinges are both taped. Back 1 kind of ugly. Back fep has a shadow from something being left in it.Name written in pencil on the ffep. In other words, the endpapers are not looking so good! Short of these repairs, I would say in very good condition.
If I missed anything it was unintentional. Please ADD ME TO YOUR FAVORITES LIST. And don't forget to check my mom's old books -she has lots of civil war books. AND check back now and then to see what's new!
Otherwise I can't send you a new invoice. T can take up to 14 days to get back East. This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference!
