Editorial: New York Ebenezer F. Baker 1836.
Año de publicación: 1836
Good/not issued with dustjacket. A full account of every battle by land and sea of the War of 1812. Also includes a history of the war with Algiers. This book a lso includes the treaties of peace with the various tribes of North American Ind ians and the United States Army Register. The book is in the original blue paper -covered boards. Both the front and rear boards are much worn around the edges, and both are somewhat soiled and stained, however the title, text and all letter ing that comprises the front board are intact and clearly legible. As was the pr actice at the time, the front board is a facsimile of the title page. The paper covering of the spine is gone exposing the binding beneath. While the rear board is still firmly attached, the front board is detached but held in place by an a ttempted tape repair. There are, in fact, only 2 pieces of scotch tape and neith er has caused any real damage to the book. The page block itself is still tightl y bound together and firm. No pages have become loose and none are missing or de tached. While there is some very minor foxing present on a few pages, the pages and text are surprisingly clean, bright and legible. There are 5 full page drawi ngs of land and sea battle scenes that serve as 5 separate frontispiece pages at the start of the book. The book itself is an extensive contemporary account of the War of 1812 and should have a practical historical value as well as a value to book collectors. Interesting in its present binding, the book could also be a ttractively preserved by an expert bookbinder. This book is a real find for eith er the collector or the historian.
