FROM BULL RUN TO CHANCELLORSVILLE STORY 16. It is perhaps fitting that I should come across this book because it was written by a relatively local Civil War hero who won the Medal of Honor for service there and who subsequently served in the U.
District of New York where I live and in which I voted a day or so ago, for his current successor. Please find on offer here a very nice copy of: "From Bull Run to Chancellorsville-the Story of the Sixteenth New York Infantry together with Personal Reminiscences, " by Newton Martin Curtis, L.This medium-sized hard cover book (6 ½ x 9 ¼ inches, 384 pages) was published by G. This copy is inscribed by the Author to his comrade and friend who subsequently passed it on, inscribed as well to the former owner from whose estate I acquired it. The Author, Newton Martin Curtis, has also signed his name in ink to the tissue cover of the Frontispiece which features his portrait.
The book is bound in dark blue finely ribbed cloth with gilt titles and a Red Cross on the cover and spine. Please see the photos of the Table of Contents for your further information. In addition to the tissue-protected frontispiece with the portrait of the Author, there are three other portraits of other Generals, presumably of the Sixteenth New York Infantry Regiment. The final chapter (Chapter XXXI) provides a roster of the Sixteenth New York Infantry and the Appendix which follows it includes biographical information on other members of the Regiment. This book would make a great gift for any Civil War buff.
This book is in very good condition. The hard covers are generally clean and very attractive with some light bumping to the corners and spine tips and some very tiny & minor soiling on the boards. Inside, as mentioned, the book is boldly inscribed on the front endpaper but that is the only mark I found in the book.There is some light and incipient foxing early & late in the book, but this does not penetrated into the main body of the text. Both hinges are intact, and the binding is tight and sound. This book is not ex-library or a remainder.
