Book club edition. Since the camera was not in widespread use at the time of the U.S. Civil War, the journalists of the day relied on artists to create depictions of scenes. These became engraved illustrations in publications such as 'Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper' and 'Harper's Weekly'. This volume presents 300 of those, along with war correspondents' descriptions of events. Images arranged and with commentary by Fletcher Pratt. --- In grey and navy leatherette covers w/titling in navy on spine. Jacket features some of the scenes from the book. --- The interior is clean, firm and unmarked thought slightly yellowed. Jacket with chafing to edges and a few small tears, is otherwise intact. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 256 pages
