9 photos including Franklin D. Roosevelt,
1 "Casper" 9 photos including Franklin D. Roosevelt

Vernacular photos by a G.I. identified only as "Casper," most locations unknown, World War II era. About 5x4 inches or 13x10cm, gelatin silver prints, an unusual mix of subject matter highlighted by a casual shot of Franklin D. Roosevelt in a muddy Jeep being driven by a corporal, with the president saluting an unidentified officer. Other images show planes and plane wreckage, destroyers in port (postwar), and G.I.'s at ease. Condition of these prints: Very good and clear, little deterioration of the images.

11 McCLELLAN, George B. Army of the Potomac Report Aug. 3, 1863, With an Account of the Campaign in Western Virginia

McCLELLAN, GEORGE B. Army of the Potomac Report Aug. 3, 1863, With an Account of the Campaign in Western Virginia, New York: Sheldon and Company, 1864. Very good in fine binding. Quarto, one of 250 printed, pp. 484, frontis is folding map of Antietam battlefield, new (2011) black cloth binding, red morocco label on spine, gilt lettering, untrimmed edges, some leaves unopened. With single-plate maps of the Peninsula and the Siege of Yorktown. The Union commander here gives an account of his Civil War campaigns in Virginia and Maryland, marked by the disappointed siege of Richmond, the mess that was the Peninsular retreat, and the culmination at Antietam and the single bloodiest day of the war. The general relies on official orders, letters, and memory to pull together a narrative explaining his tenure. Scarce. See Dornbusch 3, 1555 for the smaller, trade issue; not in Nevins; OCLC locates three copies.

War of the Rebellion, Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Price's Missouri Expedition, Etc., Official records,
12 Official records, War of the Rebellion, Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Price's Missouri Expedition, Etc.

War of the Rebellion, Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Price's Missouri Expedition, Etc., Harrisburg: National Historical Society, 1985. Large octavos reprinting the Government Printing Office's original edition of 1893, Series I, Vol. 41, in four books, pp. xv, 1138; 1238; 1128; 1310, black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spines. As the title indicates, these four books are the official records of Sterling Price's ill-fated campaign to take Missouri for the Confederacy. The first book contains reports on skirmishes and battles, largely written by officers. The other three are loaded with correspondence among officers and other authorities. If you are looking for dramatic narrative, I suggest you try the work of Shelby Foote, Bruce Catton, James MacPherson or any of the other great writers who have tackled this subject. On the other hand, if you are looking to outdo those guys, or had an ancestor involved in this campaign, you'll want this set. Condition: Some boards and edges lightly scuffed, all else fine.
