LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS OF LIEUT.- GEN. THOMAS J. JACKSON
Dabney, R.L. D.D., LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS OF LIEUT.- GEN. THOMAS J. JACKSON, (STONEWALL JACKSON). New York: Blelock & Co., 1866. New brown cloth rebind of 1st American Edition w/original spine segments laid down, 8vo (8.5x5.75"), Very Good / n.a. , [x] (2) 742pp. Stain to frontis of Jackson as evidenced in photo, very light staining and light age toning throughout, a couple of taped tears, remarkably free of foxing, previous owners library blind stamp on title page. Small amount of pencilalia throughout from "75". Presumably 1875 in that it refers to Catholicism as "Romanism," a term that has not been used in many years. That in mind the limited amount of pencilalia stands as a bit of commentary from a contemporary source. Illustrated with steel portrait and eleven diagrams. All maps and adverts intact. [Nicholson, p.211]. ["Dabney, a Virginia Clergyman, wrote this biography at the invitation of Jackson's family; while the work is polemical in its defense of the southern cause, it contains much primary material," - Nevins II p.50]. Given Nevin's inclination toward the negative, that is quite the endorsement of this wonderful container of captured time - quite the distinctive book indeed.
