American Civil War Pictorial History 1884 Illustrated Leather 2 vol. Set
(Old Books, 19th Century Books, Leather Books, Illustrated Books, Americana, Civil War, Books with Maps). Illustrating the Valor of the Soldier as Displayed on the Battled-Field, ed. Published 1884, New York by the J. Profusely illustrated throughout with hundreds of wood engraved views and images, including maps. Appears to be essentially a massive re-issue of Frank Leslie's Weekly newspaper coverage of the Civil War. Leslie was a direct competitor of Harper's Weekly and was very similar in style and content (although issued in much smaller numbers). Attractive monumental antiquarian 1/2 leather bindings, gilt compartment decorations, embossed bands, gilt pictorial cover decorations & title lettering, marbled edges and end papers. Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints scuffed but still supple, some chipping to spine heads, set remains overall very attractive as an object. Much nicer than typical for this work which is almost always found rebound or in poor shape due to the size and heft of the covers and contents.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally books remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A set which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new. Still attractive on the shelf.

Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this monumental 19th century set as it survives. We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. 17 1/4" H x 14 1/2" W.
