History of the First Kentucky Brigade

By Ed. Porter Thompson

Cincinnati: Caxton Publishing House, 1868. G+/1st ed./0. A pretty well preserved copy. Leather embossed covers are firmly attached with title in gilt on spine all present and still pretty bright along with several decorations. Hinges on both front and rear are starting, more so the back hinge. Hand sewn signatures are firmly secure and all pages are present. All illustrations are present-with the exception of the one on page 469--only half of that page is present--it's a page of engravings Colonels in the regiment. All the illustrations have foxing of varying amounts. Most of the tissue guards are present, some are not, and that has created some foxing to the text before or behind the illustration but the foxing does not obsure any print. A few other pages have a small amount of foxing started by a fingerprint. I found 2 pages missing a corner- pages 33 through 36. My favorite thing in this book is on page 363: a heart felt account of the career and command of Lieutenant-Colonel Clay who was captured and died in Marietta Georgia after having his arm amputated. In the margin in very small letters someone wrote, "I was with him--DJ" Overall an solid copy of this book, not Ex-Library, that should supply many happy reading hours with this 931 page tome. And if I never sell it---that will be just fine. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Good+/None Included. Civil War Regimental/1st KY.
