Condition: See description

Location not stated [See description]: Publisher not stated, 1971. Edition not stated. Octavo (17.5cm); brown publisher's cloth, stamped in gilt on front and spine; 160pp, frontis., 2 plates. Boards moderately worn, especially about extremities; rear panel soiled; spine sunned, with somewhat faded gilt and torn top joint; front pastedown detached from textblock; interiors show some soiling and creasing to edges; signed and inscribed by the author on dedication page (dated May 1874). Overall Very Good. Colonel Arthur T. Lee had a long and storied career in the U.S. Army. He is especially noted for his art; during his service at Fort Davis, he produced many sketches of the area, thus creating an early visual document of the American southwest. Lee illustrated two b/w plates and the frontispiece for this volume of his poetry, which examines the lot of the soldier (of the day) through lyric and rhyme; he also provides a section of footnotes. No publication information is listed in this book, save the 1871 date; its listings in OCLC and an 1882 War Department Library catalogue are similarly brief.
