Grant, U.S.

Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant (Two Volume set)


Beautiful half leather set with gilt embossed Grant stamps on front boards of each volume. Both in hardly read, clean condition. Gilt title lettering with raised leather bands to spines. The spine of Vol 1 is slightly lighter in tone than vol. 2. Both volumes are slightly rubbed at corners and extremities, more especially volume 1. Internally both are free from inscriptions and in superbly clean condition. Binding are very tight. A little scuffing to the boards of each volume but not at all severe. Grant's printed dedication to the American Soldier and Sailor appears before the Preface, as called for. Four page promotional leaflet headed "A Most Masterly Work of Art The Standard Steel Line Portrait of Gen. U.S. Grant by The World Renowned Prince of Line Engraving, William Edgar Marshall" laid in.

Fine condition.

Half-bound leather.
