John B. Gordon, Reminiscences of the Civil War, Fancy Binding
A Confederate Classic, Beautifully Rebound!
John Brown Gordon’s Reminiscences of the Civil War is an essential memoir of a leading general in the Army of Northern Virginia.
Douglas Southall Freeman called Gordon’s work “Among the most entertaining of memoirs.”
Gordon could exaggerate, but his pen-pictures of great battles like Gettysburg, Antietam, and Chickamauga are among the most important sources on those chapters of the war.
Handsomely rebound in morocco with marbled boards and end pages. Gilt lettering with raised bands design makes this a beautiful artifact for the Civil War bookcase. A salute to the art of bookbinding and a thoughtful gift!
