This catalog features our first session from an exhaustive collection of works pertaining to the American Civil War, alongside an equally impressive inventory of titles pertaining to the opening of the American West. Civil War-related histories include modern writings along with antique titles such as the 1898 first edition of Henderson’s “Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War,” published in two volumes with fold-out maps, the limited first edition of Bigelow’s “The Campaign of Chancellorsville,” and Miller’s ten-volume work, “The Photographic History of the Civil War,” in the deluxe leather bindings. The American West collection also includes an array of modern works such as Wheat’s “Mapping the Transmississippi West 1540-1861,” produced in six volumes by Grabhorn Press in decorative bindings with fold-out maps, complemented by early titles including the 1874 first edition of Custer’s “My Life on the Plains or Personal Experiences with Indians.” Additional titles cover Indian Wars, exploration and the gold rush.
