The Editor in Chief was Francis Trevelyan Miller. Each of the volumes was written by various individuals.The books were put out by the Review of Reviews Company of New York. The books were published by the Patriot Publishing Co of Springfield, MA. There is a forward by President Howard Taft in the first volume. The books have obviously been rebound at some point as this is the nicest set that I have viewed. My late father acquired them in the late 1950's. The books have a black leather hardcover. The spine is done in same material as the covers with a gold gilt lettering on each volume. The books are not signed and have no markings in them at all. The books are still well bound. The hardboard covers are securely attached. No mold, tobacco, or mildewy smell. The books include contributions from eminent individuals, scholars, politicians, and Officers of both the Union and Confederate armies and navies Each of the ten books is 10-7/8" tall, by 8.25" across, by approximately 1.5 wide.
