NEW YORK: Harper & Bros., 1851 [published date: 1851]. RARE EARLY EDITION. Two volumes bound in one. 4to. 10.5" x 7.25" Inches. (LxB). Pp. xxxii, 576; 9 - 392 pages + several 100 engravings, all edges marbled. Fine original contemporary 3/4 polished calf leather binding, over marbled boards, elaborately gilt decorated spine with black gilt lettered morocco label. Printed and engraved title pages in volume 1, the latter drawn by S. Wallin, engraved by Lossing and Barritt. Engravings in text, as noted. Benson John Lossing (1813 – 1891) was a prolific and popular American historian, known best for his illustrated books on the American Revolution and American Civil War and his features in Harper's Magazine. In 1848, Lossing embarked on a two year journey, travelling thousands of miles through the original thirteen states and Canada. His mission was to collect and preserve the stories of the men and women who had fought to make the United States a reality. This original work comprises more than 2,000 pages of the first-hand history Lossing collected on this trek. Lossing relates the stories of the heroes and villains of the war from accounts of the people who were there. It delivers a wonderful picture of the original thirteen states as they were in the decade before America's next great crucible, the Civil War.
