A Life Of General Robert E Lee. By John Esten Cooke Published by D. A very nice 1883 reprint of the 1871 1st edition. This copy has the following minor condition issues.
Slight cracking to the hinges of the spine. A minor tear at the top of the back strap. Shelf wear and rubbing to the cover boards. For being nearly 140 years old this book is in great condition. The coverboards are firmly attached.
The spine is tight with no loose, missing, or damaged pages. All the tissue protectors are in place. The fold out map is very nice. Some minor tanning from age. All text is clean, crisp, and very readable.
A previous owner's name and a date of 1890 is written on one of the end papers. All in all a very nice copy that displays nicely or with minor TLC could be easily repaired. My understanding is this title is the 1st biography of Lee published upon his death. A great addition to any civil war library.Check my feedback - you will be pleased.
