PERSONAL MEMOIRS OF P. H. SHERIDAN. General United States Army.

(New York: Charles L. Webster & Company, 1888).

VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION. Sheridan recounts his life as a West Point cadet, cavalry commander, American military observer to the Franco-Prussian War, infamous hero of the American Civil War, among other appointments and experiences. This beautiful set is illustrated throughout. One of the "Great War" series, which also includes PERSONAL MEMOIRS OF U. S. GRANT and MCCLELLAN'S OWN STORY, among other titles. Item #20215

2 volumes. First edition. Steel-engraved portrait frontispiece and a profusion of plates and maps throughout, some of which are fold-out. 8vo, publisher’s original dark green cloth with gilt lettering and fine all over gilt pictorial decorations over the spines and upper covers. xiii, 500; xi, 486 pp. A very fine set, far nicer then one typically finds, the cloth is bright and clean with strong gilt, hinges fine and sturdy, internally clean and fresh with only the lightest of mellowing a few spots caused by age, an as pristine copy, the maps all in fine condition, the folding maps appear never have been opened and the same is probably true with the books.
