Adam Badeau, the military secretary of the Union commander tells the story of his chief. A very desirable work. Almost as authoritative as Grant’s Memoirs since Badeau served as Grant’s chief researcher in writing the autobiography.

This copy of Badeau’s magisterial work includes an autograph card pasted in, signed “Adam Badeau / Late Military Secretary / to General Grant.” Also, a document, pasted in and signed twice by Badeau, documenting clothing purchases while serving as a volunteer aide de camp for General Thomas W. Sherman January 24, 1862.

All volumes show usual toning and very light foxing; light chipping of extremities; light rubbing; light bumps. Volume 2 spine just starting. A very good set. An essential companion to Grant’s Memoirs.

Badeau, Adam. MILITARY HISTORY OF ULYSSES S. GRANT, FROM APRIL 1861 TO APRIL 1865. New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1881. 3 volumes, frontispiece, illustrations, folding maps.
