REMINISCENCES OF THE WAR OF 1861-1865

Richmond: Whittet and Shepperson, 1917.

Stapled Pamphlet. Second Printing. Signed. Roberston, writing in the Nevins Bibliography, notes that “The bulk of these recollections treat of the author’s experiences while a clerk in a Richmond hotel; his prior service as a soldier ended with a wound at Antietam”. First printed in Roanoke in 1912, this Richmond edition was 5 years later -- both are uncommon. This copy is signed by “the Author” with a personal inscription to Rev. J. Murray Taylor. The front panel has scattered silverfishing. It has a an indentation as to the first few leaves that does not actually puncture the paper. (Nevins I, 64).

Very Good binding.
