French translation of Pollards "Lost Cause: A New Southern History of the War of the Confederates" published in New York in 1867. Noblom's translation, "Edition Illustree et Augmentee de Notes et de Renseignements Complementaires Concernant la Louisiane" was printed in New Orleans while the city was occupied by Federal troops. Pollard was the editor of the Richmond Examiner during the war and the author of several other books on southern life and the War of the Confederates (known as the Civil War in the North). Pollard's point of view was distinctly pro-Confederate, while pointing out the tactical and political mistakes of the Confederacy. Bound in original gilt stamped brown cloth, with a blind-stamped design on rear cover, gilt ruled leather corners, somewhat worn. Gilt ruled and stamped leather spine (top edge pulled, slight tear at bottom). Front and rear hinges broken, old repair with cellotape. Most pages aged toned and lightly foxed. Contains 11 illustrations: frontispiece copy of a photograph of a group of Confederate generals; nicely done full page steel engravings of Jefferson Davis, John C. Breckenridge, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, G.T. Beauregard, Jos. E. Johnson, and Alexander H. Stephens, on heavy paper (foxed). Also maps of Charleston Bay, Roanoke and the Western Front, and battle plans of Shiloh and Manassas. 409 pp., plus notes, index to chapters, and list of illustrations. Information on translator: Noblom was a Belgian who fought for the Confederacy with a Belgian regiment. "Noblom, Jules, Lt. 9th Co. 3rd Regt. European Brig. (Garde Francaise) La. Mil.
