Sandoz, Mari. THE BATTLE OF THE LITTLE BIG HORN. New York: 1966. Limited edition of 249 signed, numbered & specially bound copies, 203p., map, folding map, maps on end pages.
The last (and very controversial) book by the acclaimed and prolific western historian. Originally a title in Lippincott’s splendid “Great Battles of History” series, this special edition, published by James F. Carr, contains material not in the trade edition: a tipped-in typewritten page of the original manuscript, signed by Sandoz (like Albert Beveridge’s Manuscript Edition of his famous Lincoln biography – published posthumously); two letters written by G.A. Custer while at West Point; and an excellent fold-out drawing of Ft. Fetterman, with key.
This is a very scarce piece of Custeriana!
Signed copy #93; 1/4 leather bind., w/ raised bands & uncut edges; v. lt. bump., else excellent; slipcase w/ drawstrap.
