1862 1ed War with South CIVIL WAR Military Tomes Illustrated Gettysburg MAPS
The American Civil War played an important role in the expansion and growth of book publication in the United States, as people were craving an understanding of the conflict. Robert Tomes began publishing a subscription book that would give insight to the war, but he believed his work would help end the battles quickly. It didn’t. “The War with the South” saw print in dozens of separate parts during the height of the Civil War.
This incredible first edition set is an impressive account of the Civil War, written solely from a Northern perspective. According to Nevins, this work is
“a wartime publication, this set presents a purely Northern viewpoint; rather heavy on politics.”
In addition to the fascinating contents, this beautifully bound work features full-page engravings and maps
