Facsimile reprint of a 1928 edition. Gibbon was a respected general in the Union Army, and his memoirs are clear sighted and fair. (Though he didn't gain fame in the Civil War, he did gain fame commanding troops in the Sioux War of 1876, and his association with Custer and Little Big Horn-this later experience not covered in this book, however. ) A very nice copy!
Description:Very Good+ binding. An attractive First Edition copy of Gibbons...Very Good+ binding. An attractive First Edition copy of Gibbons' Recollections showing little wear. James I. Robertson in his section on "Military Aspects--Soldier Life" in Nevins' bibliography, praises this memoir as "reliable" and "straightforward" and "particularly good for the Gettysburg campaign"; he notes that Gibbon "for a time commanded the Iron Brigade" [Nevins I, 93]. This is Bud Robertson's copy with bookplate on the front pastedown. Altogether a tight, square copy with a bit of darkening to the titling on the spine but which is nonetheless still relatively bright and more than presentable. (Nevins I, 93). Very Good+ binding.
