A few light creases and spots to backstrip, minor loss from board corners. 1887 Hard Cover. x, 824 pp. 8vo. Original drab boards, paper spine label. A history of naval warfare during the American Civil War, by a former Confederate officer, who was among the first American historians to use newspapers as an authoritative source.
