Descripción

Edited by Bell Irvin Wiley. 8vo. Tan cloth. xxvi, (40pp), 281pp. Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. First modern edition -- tight, clean, nice -- being a reprint of the classic and ultra-rare 1895 first edition. Bears a fine autograph addition from the influential and prolific editor Wiley (1906-80), for tipped to an inner flyleaf is a Typed Letter Signed from him, 8¼" X 10", Lexington, KY, 1955 March 24. Addressed to noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Near fine. On letterhead of "The Southern Historical Association," which lists Wiley as president, he chats at length with his friend about "500 reprints of Raoul S. Narroll's article, 'Lincoln and the Sherman Peace Fiasco--Another Fable' from the November 1954 issue of [The Journal of Southern History]. I should like to distribute them to members of the Civil War Round Tables, with a covering letter over my signature as president of the Southern Historical Association inviting recipients to become members of the Association." Wiley goes on about marketing this association. Signed boldly in full in black ink. Front pastedown bears unusual Viking exploration bookplate of Alan K. Dolliver. James I. Robertson Jr. calls Mosgrove "'A strange conglomerate of romanticism and realism,' and possessed of 'some of the choicest stories ever to be written about the Civil War.'" NEVINS I, 134.
