About This Item

1884. soft. Fine. Original Edition The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine November 1884 - to - April 1888 Volumes 7 - to - 13 These 7 volumes, each one containing 6 original issues (42 issues), comprise one of the most desirable and highly sought after classics. Original text block beautifully rebound in black leather and buckram with gild lettering. The December 1884 issue contains the First American Printing of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain . Each issue contains the Famous Series entitled Battles and Leaders of the Civil War . These volumes contain this complete series . The publishers contracted with leaders on both sides of the Civil War to write their first hand accounts and details of the significant battles and events. U.S.Grant was paid $1,000.00 of each of 4 articles. Grant later included these articles in his 2 volume set memoirs. The series drew so much interest that it lasted for three years. Among the contributors to the series besides Grant were Union generals, William Tecumseh Sherman , Philip Sheridan , and George B. McClellan . As The Century tried to avoid bias and promote American unity, it also sought out and accepted accounts from those on the Confederate side, including the generals James Longstreet and P.G.T. Beauregard . The contributions led readers who had served in the war to submit unsolicited recollections and previously unpublished documents to the magazine, in addition to criticisms and rebuttals of published pieces. These submissions were so numerous that in 1885 The Century began to include them in a section titled "Memoranda on the Civil War". (sources include Wikipedia) Quote - These war papers created in this country the greatest interest ever felt in any series of articles published in a magazine There are so many Firsts in this set that they are too numerous to mention here. For example: articles by Theodore Roosevelt and Illustrated by the famous Frederick Remington, Poems by Longfellow, 'The Bostonians' by Henry James, 'Abraham Lincoln, a History' by former secretaries John Hay and John G. Nicolay All are authentic originals Publisher-Printing Location: The Century Company, New York, New York Date and Numbering: November 1884 - to - April 1888 Volumes 7 - to - 13 Size and Page Count:6.75 X 10 Tall Condition: - Fine - Professionally Rebound in black leather buckram with gild lettering , text blocks in fine condition.

About The Franklin Bookstore

The Franklin Bookstore began in 1996 by Robert & Ruth Lynn in Humboldt, Tennessee. Retiring from the Navy and a business career and always a history buff, Robert and Ruth opened the business of selling and dealing with rare books, magazines and newspapers. Many items were acquired from other rare books dealers from across the country. The Franklin Bookstore continues with his offspring mindful to keep the high ethical business examples that Dad established. We feel honored to be associated with such a virtual history of the printed word, inherently beautiful and fascinating artifacts of our cultural past. Every item we offer is guaranteed to be absolutely genuine and as described. A large part of the inventory is periodicals that date from the Revolutionary War to World War II.
