Very Good+ in None Issued jacket. History/Civil War/Prostitution VG+/1st ed. / Includes Map. This interesting and fun little book is 100 pages(53 pages of text, with the Souvenir Sporting Guide taking up the rest of the pages). Some b&w photos, advertisements for the houses, index. Map is in perfect shape, dosen't appear to have been opened. Hot pink cover is in perfect condition, book is tight, square and clean with no markings.
The title is misleading. A large of the book is of pictures of Civil War DC but none of the strumpets nor of the 'red light' district. Another large portion is a reprint of the sporting guide which contains the names of a number of 'houses' in 1895 with each containing a phrase similar to 'with x number of pretty ladies' and 'with the best beers and wines'. There is also a list of the houses, their addresses and their rating but that is only a page and half with another half page for the 'colored' houses. I was disappointed that not much else was contained there in. A much better book is: Story the Soldiers Wouldn't Tell: Sex in the Civil War.
