Description

Battles and Leaders of the Civil War is “Opinionated and rationalizing memoirs,” but that is why we read them!  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.”

An excellent Collector’s Set, tight, solid, and clean; light rubbing at spine tips containing years of great reading and reference.

A handsome and surprisingly fresh set with only minimal rubbing.
