Here is a nice first edition book (Volume 5 Only) about the War of the Rebellion for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
Very nice one volume of the multi-volume set, we think there was 128 volumes in total. This is a 1st Edition. This 5th volume was issued in 1900. The book was published under the direction of Honorable Elihu Root, the Secretary of War, by Brigadier General Fred Ainsworth, Chief of the Record and Pension Office of the War Department.
The book has blackish blue cloth hardcovers. The title and volume number is in gold gilt on the spine of the book.
The front and back covers are still attached to the rest of the book at the spine. Shows some cracking along the hinges. Some wear and soiling to the covers at the edges. Was once some sort of documents or maps in a back pocket of the book that are no longer there.
Some light browning of the pages. No foxing or brown spotting. Some minor soiling in places. The book's pages are all intact, no tears, missing pages or repairs.
The book is still well bound. The hardboard covers are securely attached. No musty, tobacco, or mildewy smell. A dusty smell to the book being over 115 years old.
The book is 9.25" tall, by 6.5" across, by 2-1/16", and 2-3/16" wide. The second volume is 1105 pages in length. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
