George Templeton Strong, The Diary of George Templeton Strong 1835-1875. 1st ed


A Most Prolific Diarist!

In stock


Nothing approaches The Diary of George Templeton Strong as a unique panorama of the mid-19th-Century. Strong surveyed almost the entire national scene and wrote with vividness and spirit from his home in New York.

Strong’s writing was one of the most prominent resources in Ken Burns’ documentary The Civil War. Voiced by George Plimpton.

Lightly cocked; else very good condition in original slipcase. Recommended.
