New York, , 1870. . Hardcover. Size: 12mo 7" - 7. A perfectly serviceable reference copy; nothing fancy, but complete and sturdy.

Instruction for Heavy Artillery; Prepared by a Board of Officers, for the Use of the Army of the United States
Washington, D.C., U.S. Government Printing Office, 1863. First Edition. Hardcover. Size: 12mo 7" - 7. A perfectly serviceable reference copy; nothing fancy, but complete and sturdy. Publisher's original cloth covers, a bit scuffed and worn at the tips and extremities, at front joint. Gilt titles on spine are present but rubbed. Thirty-nine full-page, hand-drawn plates, interior clean and tight. Bookplate of a Navy Officer affixed over signature of a Navy Captain is dated; it would appear to be May 16th, 1867. Spine slightly chipped and frayed. Protected by a clear acid-free Mylar dust jacket. Very lightly soiled at endpapers, scattered foxing here and there, else a remarkably clean copy of a scarce title. This volume was prepared under the direction of the United States War Department, and it was explicitly approved by Abraham Lincoln. Eventually, the War Department instructed its use by Union troops who were deploying heavy artillery during the Civil War. Each of the plates show the different kinds of heavy artillery. Handle with a bit of care, but still, a remarkably sturdy volume. The book has extraordinary association value. The previous owner of the book was Emerson H. Liscum, born in July of 1841 and died in July of 1900. Liscum joined the 1st Vermont Infantry in May of 1861 so as to serve in the Union Army during the Civil War. Only a month later, he fought in the Battle of Big Bethel. He fought also in February of 1863 at Gettysburg, where he was severely wounded. His sacrifice and gallantry were duly noted, and he was promoted in August of 1864 to the rank of Captain owing to the valor he showed at the Battle of Bethesda Church. He continued his military career in both the Deep South during Reconstruction and on the American frontier, and then also served during the Spanish–American War and then even Philippine-American War. He died while fighting during the so-called Boxer Rebellion. . . . Good
