Cleburne and his Command-Irving Buck
Item #: NEW-0012333

Click image to enlarge

I looked for this first edition for years when I was in collector mode but couldn't find it.  Neale is the publishing company. 1908 is the publishing date.  There is some mottling, mostly on the bottom edge.  The spine has suffered from some fading due to being exposed to the sun and the scan shows the difference in the color.  The hinge is split making the binding somewhat loose.  Full page inscription on the recto page but not by the author and some dinginess that I was able to erase part of.  I'll let the buyer do the rest.  Minor shelf wear to the top and bottom of the spine.  I have just seen this listed for $1,200 by a prominent Civil War book dealer.

History of Morgan's Cavalry-Basil Duke-First
Item #: NEW-0011699

Click image to enlarge
I believe this is a first edition although it was copy written in 1866. It has been re-bound but very tastefully done in leather.  Published in Cincinnati: Miami Printing and Publishing Company.  Moisture stains at top right corner which eventually fades out. Musty smell but not over powering. Moisture stain at bottom left corner which goes through the whole book.  Light foxing throughout the pages but very clean considering the age.  The interesting thing is that a Confederate soldier has made pencil comments throughout the book.  Ink writing on a blank page which is very faded but appears to read B.B.M.L. Barr.  However on one of the pages the owner has written "The author has more intelligence than any other southern author of his period J A Barr".  The only J A Barr I can find was with the 12th Georgia Militia which  doesn't really compute.  The book came from the library of a historic Gallatin Tennessee family.  The most interesting comment is on the last page and the handwriting seems different.  "Very interesting and excepting the partiality for some officers whom I could not like reliable. Morgan men (many of them) were more thievish but not the brave than he represents them.  I was with them from May 5 to June 20th 1863."
