Description

Though bearing prior owners' notations, it is worthwhile to note that the stamp at the first (blank) page is that of Cassius M. Clay, then of Mexico, Missouri, prior to his career as an abolitionist and statesman, with the inscription of his father, Green Clay, at the title page, dated 1870 with a given location of St. Louis. Recently restored by Lawrence Yerkes, this copy bears tidy page repair at the front free endpaper and upper first (blank) page, some cloth replacement at spine heel and head, and refinishing at the board corners. The pages are clean save for a very few scattered instances of foxing, a few small and light spots of dust soil at the head edge of the page block, and an ink spot at the foreedge of the page block intruding barely a millimeter into the leaf faces; the tissue guard at the double frontis shows some foxing with related discolouration in the margins of the frontis pages. The binding is remarkably tight, the impressed publisher's logo and decoration at fore and rear beautifully intact, the gilt at the front only very slightly darkened, the gilt at the spine showing some spots of rubbing obscuring a few letters but largely intact. The rear board shows a dark spot at the right and some modest, gentle spotting at left, uppers, and lowers, matched on the front and there showing some areas of surface attenuation and a little rising of the cloth at the lower left front, but the cloth remains overall quite stunningly attractive. Later issue of first edition. 234 black-and-white plate illustrations; double frontis; 651pp + five pages of ads.; pages xvii and xviii of the table of contents have page numbers; last entry on page xviii ends with the word "conclusion"; engraved portrait of Napoleon III at p.129; heading on p. 643 is "CHAPTER LXI"; third page of printed ads begins with "Personal History of Ulysses S. Grant."
