A HISTORY OF THE CIVIL WAR IN THE UNITED STATES; With a Preliminary View of Its Causes and Biographical Sketches of Its Heroes. Part First Published in 1863 by Bradley & Co. Philadelphia; Part Second Published in 1864 by Bradley & Co.Philadelphia, Jones Brothers & Co. Baltimore; Part Third Published in 1865 by Jones Brothers, Philadelphia, C. Three 9 x 6 red leather bindings decorated with gilt. Illustrated with engraved plate, also illustrations and maps. Condition: VERY GOOD ANTIQUE CONDITION. Beautiful red-leather exteriors decorated with gilt as shown in photos. Volume III has a missing bottom corner on the rear board but does not affect display (see photos) and there is a publishers error in the lettering beneath the eagle on the spine (see photo in main description).
All three volumes are firmly bound. Text is clean and complete, typical foxing. No torn, loose or missing pages. A superior example of this very hard to find complete wartime set. This rare three-volume history of the Civil War, beautifully bound in red leather decorated with gilt, was written in installments as the war progressed.Part First appeared in 1863, and Part Second in 1864. The original author, Samuel M. Schmucker, died in 1863, before the war had concluded.
Thus, Part Third, issued in 1865, was completed by Dr. Brockett (author of Womans Work in the Civil War and others) and issued by a different publisher. The text is illustrated by a series of beautiful steel-engraved plates, other illustrations and maps. The Publisher states in the Preface. There can be little doubt that a reliable history of the incidents connected with this memorable drama, and even more than one such history, would be acceptable to the public.In the following work, therefore, the writer has undertaken to describe its thrilling and marvellous scenes. He has set forth at some length the most potent of the causes which gave it birth. He has introduced, from time to time, biographical sketches of those soldiers and statesmen, who distinguished themselves by their heroism or by their patriotism during its progress. He has followed the march of the Federal armies, as they achieved one victory or suffered one temporary reverse after another; and the narrative will be continued, Deo volente, until the record is complete, and he has described how the Republic was conducted by firm and skillful hands through all the storms which have assailed it, to the attainment of a permanent and honorable peace. The author has been assiduous and careful in regard to the materials from which the contents of the work have been derived. He has applied to his use every attainable source of information which was worthy of confidence and attention. Official reports of eminent commanders, and the narratives of intelligent and truthful eye-witnesses of the scenes described, together with various other depositories of facts, have been thoroughly examined, compared and appropriated. The author has not the presumption to imagine that he has in all cases attained perfect accuracy ; but he does not hesitate to assert, that he has left no effort or expedient unemployed to avoid error and misstatement in every part of the work. The Contents are described in detail below. Some of the historic illustrations can be viewed further down the page. I hope youll take a moment to have a look.
