War of the Rebellion American History Books, Leather Civil War Books, S/3

Regular price $145

An antique collection of 3-volumes from War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Series 1, 1892 to 1898.

These Official Records as they are commonly called are considered the best American civil war books, the entire series was prepared under the direction of the Secretary of War and edited by Robert N. Scott in response to a June 1880 Act of Congress requiring a full account of the Civil War from both sides.

They are three-quarter leather-bound over marbleized paper covers with matching end pages. The entire book block has marbleized edges although the top and side have faded with age. The bottom of the page stack however is still quite vibrant. Some of the leather on the spines are chipped, splitting, and fragile as can be seen in the pictures.

These books measure 7.5" across, 9.75" tall, and 6.75" front to back. The books are all from Series 1 and include volume 41 - part 4, volume 51 - part 2, and volume 52 - part 1.

We do not know the original owner of the collection but there are library cards, unused for the most part, in the back of some of the books and catalog numbers on the spine bottoms.

There are many more of these in the series that will be put up over the next few days. Please let us know if you would like to see more before they are listed. We would be happy to give you a first look.


As these books are quite old please expect that they show a bit of age-related wear.
