(SHERMAN, MAJOR-GENERAL WILLIAM T.; HARRIET BEECHER STOWE)
Harper's Weekly (March 12, 1864)
New York, 1864, First Edition. Book Disbound , Very Good, COMPLETE AND ORIGINAL ISSUE, NOT A REPRINT. A RARE HISTORICAL DOCUMENT. In remarkable condition--still bright and clean with no tears except to spine where disbound. Two pages do show fading and there is scattered, light foxing. Excellent cover illustration of Major-General William T. Sherman sitting on a camp chair in a field with a messenger at his side taking notes with his horse waiting in the background. Spectacular center-fold collage, "Story of the Sea, Incidents in the Life of a Sailor" which shows in exacting details 8 stirring scenes in the story of a wreck of a ship and the rescue of its sailors. Literary review (in one paragraph) of the "Life of Lynman Beecher," the father of Harriet Beecher Stowe. "The work though edited by Charles Beecher is really the joint production of serferal members of the family." Remarkable full-page illustration of "Escaping Union Officers Succored by Slavfes" with story. This page is one of two showing fading but the picture is still very clear and stark. The fading is uniform, and with all the ink in the drawing, is hardly noticeable. Also of note is a full-page "Map of the Campaign in East Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida." Chps. 3 and 4 of "Quite Alone" by George Augustus Sala. Also, seven illustrations: portraits of Major-General Palmer and Brigadier-General W.S. Smith, "Bridge Across The Holston, at Knoxville, Tennesee" by C.H. Perring, "Sanderson Florida, Occupied by Our Advance Before the Battle of Olustee," "Scene of the Fight at the Plank Bridge over Big Creek, at Barber's, February 19, 1864," "Barber's House at the Ford on Big Creek, Colonel Barton's Headquarters," and "Wreck of the 'Bohemian' as Seen the Morning after She Sunk."
