THE ARMY IN THE CIVIL WAR. THE NAVY IN THE CIVIL WAR.

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885.

Subscription Edition. Hardcover. Item #738

16 octavo volumes, original blue cloth gilt. Illustrated with steel-engraved portraits and folding maps. Slight marks on the spines of four volumes; a few nicks to the head of the spine of a few volumes; some water damage to the lower right corner of the rear board on volume 14 with a corresponding faint dampstain affecting the blank margin of a few pages. Overall a very good set. The first thirteen volumes cover the land campaigns of the war, the final three the naval campaigns, "each book by an expert having special knowledge of his own topic, and, with one or two exceptions, official part in the campaigns described" (Larned 2095). A scarce set, especially in nice condition.
