James Longstreet’s Manassas to Appomattox, in a gorgeous publisher’s presentation binding.
James Longstreet’s Manassas to Appomattox remains one of the greatest memoirs of a prominent Confederate. “Old Pete’s” memoirs are a vital source for the study of the Army of Northern Virginia, and a truly important work in Confederacy literature.
Talented and controversial, Longstreet led the hardest hitting corps in Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, yet is still the focus of blame and second-guessing, whether that be for his reluctant performance at the Battle of Gettysburg, or his post-war career in Republican politics as a political ally of U. S. Grant.
This publisher’s presentation copy of the 1st edition is uncommonly beautiful and quite scarce, featuring leather binding with bright gilt lettering, marbled end pages, and a gold leaf engraving of the general on the front board.
Light foxing; rear hinge starting; light scuffing of boards; else near fine condition. Beautiful!
Longstreet, James. FROM MANASSAS TO APPOMATTOX. Philadelphia: 1896. Limited (1st) edition, 690p., illustrated, maps. Howes-L451.
