Price: $30.00

Publisher: New York, Harper & Brothers: 1865

Edition: 22nd Edition

Seller ID: 14636

Condition: Very Good


This copy states 22nd Edition, which I think means 22nd printing since the only dates are 1865 on title page and colophon. The spine has been professionally replaced on this copy and the remnant of the original is laid in. The book has some edge and corner wear but is square and securely bound. This was a popular account of Sherman's March to the Sea from Atlanta and then his final campaign through the Carolinas. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 408 pages View more info
