Davis, Burke, TO APPOMATTOX NINE APRIL DAYS, 1865, New York: Rinehart & Company, Inc., 1959. First edition, flat signed on front free flyleaf, light orange cloth w/black,white and blue titling on spine, 8vo (9.25x6.5"), very good/good+, 433 pp. Spine of book under, dust jacket, lightly dampstained at head and tail, dust jacket lightly chipped at head and tail also, else fine. Mr. Davis lets us see the last tragic days of the Confederacy in a way that touches the human heart most keenly - through the eyes of the soldiers and civilians (both sides) who actually experienced the excitement and anguish. Petersburg to Appomattox is a chapter of the war that has been somewhat neglected. I am indeed glad to see it treated with such vividness and such painstaking scholarship. - John J. Pullen (From the dust jacket.) Signed versions of this first edition are not as common as one might think - quite the distinctive book.
