Just a PARTIAL set (6 out of 10 volumes), all first editions, of this definitive photographic chronicle, but all are tight and attractive, with no flaws other than quite mild binding wear. Warren W. Hassler Jr. sums it up nicely: "A mammoth collection of Civil War pictures that has become the standard photographic compendium on most aspects of the conflict." Priced accordingly. NEVINS I, 38.
