Handsomely bound in purple pebbled cloth stamped brightly in gold with rectangular gold rules, ornate floral decorations and a heavily gilded statue of a General on Horseback on the front and rear boards of each of the 3 volumes. The spines are brightly lettered in gold with gilded floral motiffs. Very clean and tight throughout; printed on heavy white paper which is bright and crisp with black printed type. There is a touch of foxing here and there throughout the 3 volumes, but mostly in the margins; the text and plates are remarkably clean and bright. All edges are marbled and the volumes present handsomely on the shelf. With light wear to the corners and a touch of fading to the spines. An amazingly well preserved set. Embellished with over 125 engravings, including 80 portraits of prominent statesmen, military and naval officers, on steel, in chromo-lithography, and on wood, illustrating the varied and exciting scenes of the war, with numerous maps, giving the location of all important military points. (Furnished to Subscribers Only.) With the printer’s slug "C. A. Alvord" on the copyright pages of volumes I and II. Volume III is printed in New York by N.C. miller, 3 Park Row, publisher of subscription books. H.H. Bancroft & Co., San Francisco, CAL. 1866. Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1863, by L. Stebbins. The engravings are clean and crisp and amazing (e.g. General Grant and General Lee, each on horseback; Battle of Wilson's Creek, Death of Gen. Lyon; Iron Clads and Monitors bombarding defences of Charlston); and the chromolithographs in Vol. I (e.g., Bombardment of Fort Sumter; and Zouaves Leaving for the War) are bright, striking and splendid. Thomas Prentice Kettell (born 1811) was a 19th-century American political economist, magazine editor, and author. He was a well-known economic commentator from the 1840s through the American Civil War. Kettell wrote for the New York Herald starting in 1835 as a financial columnist. He also wrote for Hunt's Magazine and later edited The United States Magazine and Democratic Review. He founded United States Economist in 1852. The magazine later expanded its title to United States Economist, Dry Good Reporter, and Bank, Railroad and Commercial Chronicle. He had some success in styling his magazines as American competitors to the British publication The Economist. In 1856 Kettell authored Southern Wealth and Northern Profits, a lengthy statistical pamphlet about the economies of the Northern and Southern regions. The book received wide acclaim among secessionists in the South and much derision from anti-slavery politicians in the North, even though Kettell intended it as an argument that the two regions were economically dependent upon each other. In 1866 Kettell authored one of the earliest histories of the recent Civil War, entitled A History of the Great Rebellion. He relocated to San Francisco in the late 1860s and died there sometime later in the century.
