Very Good. Item #5708

Philadelphia: Published by the Author, 1864. First Edition. Octavo; xii, 360pp. Blindstamped brown cloth-covered boards with gilt lettering to spine.

Contemporary ownership mark "60 Regt NYSV Wm C Donahue (?)" in grease pencil on front pastedown. Opens easily to between gatherings, but binding is secure. Pages toning with light to moderate foxing throughout, but unmarked.

Nevins notes "More a damnation of the South and slavery than a regimental history; Eddy's military service was confined to the Harper's Ferry region." [Nevins I-84].
