The Civil War A Narrative (3 Volume Set) by Shelby Foote



An uncommon, first edition set of all three volumes of Foote’s classic military study of the Civil War. Random House (1958), (1963), (1974), New York, 1958. Hardcover. Condition: All 3 Volumes are Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good to fair with some tears and normal wear (see photos). First edition. Large 8vo. 3 volumes: 840 pp.; 988 pp; 1106 pp. All three volumes bound in textured grey cloth with gold lettering blocked in blue on the spine, detailed maps on endpapers and paste-downs, grey topstain, numerous maps throughout. All three volumes are first printings in the correct dust jackets. Because the three volumes were published over a period of almost two decades the set has become increasingly difficult to find in both first editions and reasonably uniform condition. A very nice set.
