Wow, what a beautiful book regarding Civil War history in the Philadelphia, PA here. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself!
The book is still very well bound together with the exception of the front cover being separated (still with the book). The back cover is still firmly attached to the spline of the book. the book was printed by William F Fell & Company of Philadelphia. This is a 1st Edition Book, cannot say if first printing.
There is a gold seal on the front cover. Great pictures and illustrations throughout the book. There are no missing or torn pages. No musty or dusty smell to the book. The book does have a faint what I think is a tobacco smell to it. I see no foxing or brown spotting of the pages going on.
First time I have come across this book in about 5 years in this area. I have researched this book online and have not found a recent sale of one at any of the rare/antique book sites I look to, nor do I see any of these manuals for sale on any internet store sites. If one of you knows of one, please bring it to my attention.
The book is 10" tall, by 7" across, by 2.25" wide. The book is 571 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.
The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description.
