Offering Battles and Leaders of the Civil War…in four volumes

One of the most quoted in Civil War literature, and rightly so. The earliest printing with the spine gilt titled The Century Company’s War Book.

“Opinionated and rationalizing memoirs” but that is why we read them!

A handsome and surprisingly fresh set with only minimal rubbing.

An excellent collector’s set!

BATTLES AND LEADERS OF THE CIVIL WAR…BEING FOR THE MOST PART CONTRIBUTIONS BY UNION AND CONFEDERATE OFFICERS (title page). New York: 1887-88. 1st.; 4 volumes bound in 3/4-leather marbled boards; gilt shield devices on spine; marbled endsheets; previous owner’s bookplates.
