Fine. Near Fine Dj. Folio-over 12"-15" tall. A bright fine copy of the book and the jacket is fine looking but has some light edgewear and is downgraded to near fine in conditon. No other marks or wear. Still looks about new.
This book is full of pictures. I am a little disapointed with the photographer Brady as to having always or mostly "planted" his subjects rather than taken them as he found them. It presents, I think, a false vision of the war. This can not be blamed on the collector of photographs otherwise said as "editor". While I found that the brief descriptions of the photograhs sometimes went against other written data and with less, if anything, to back up the information that this was not intended as such a book. If war could ever be seen as for "pleaure viewing", this book would be it. Nice front cover and many nice pictures within of groups of people not commonly found together.
