Fine in fine dust jacket. As new. Light blue vinyl over boards. Light blue photo illustrated jacket. 160 p. Appendix w/ facsimile letters. U.S. History: Collection of letters from steamer engineer William Tipton to his wife Carrie, and some to her sister Jennie and others, with some written to him at sea. The Libby Prison Letters included here are exchanges between Andrew Jackson Hopkins and his wife Jennie while he was a prisoner. Carrie Tipton died and her son Willie was adopted by the Hopkins's. The letters were turned over to the author by a sole descendant while in his 90s, suggesting they be published. A prefatory Note offers that the letters were printed herein exactly as written, including errors and inconsistencies in spelling. Only a few minor changes were made for clarification.
