Up for sale is this rare antique 1863 printing of U. S Infantry Tactics for the Instruction, Exercise, and Maneuvers of the United States Infantry, Including Infantry of the Line, Light Infantry, and Rifleman. The book is overall in good/fair condition.
There is a penciled name "Charles Willson" on the back side of the frontispiece folding plate. It looks like something else was written underneath his name, but it is too faint to make out.The frontispiece folding plate has become a bit crinkled and accordion-esque as illustrated in the third photo. There is an old repair with paper to a verticle tear on the back of the plate. All of the plates with pictures of soldiers have been hand colored/painted by somebody at some point in the past. As illustrated in the photos, the colors of the uniforms are not historically accurate. The covers have some wear as shown in the photos, most noticeably some wear to the back cover.
There are some interior cracks to the binding, but the binding of the book is good and sound. The pages are toned with age with some occasional foxing/staining. Along with that there is likely the occasional page with some other minor imperfection such as a small tear or chip, creased page corner, etc. Please look at the photos to further note the condition and message me with any questions you might have.The item "Antique 1863 CIVIL WAR Soldier U.
