Category:

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.
