Green cloth with gilt spine and cover titles, 15.5 by 23 cm, engraved title, 651 pp. Poor with light corner wear, light wear and small splits at the head and tail of the spine, and a few light spots and stains on the boards; the ffep, engraved title page and title page are partially detached, and there is a dampstain that reached up 1-4 cm from the bottom edge of the entire textblock (see images). There is a 1-1.5 cm tear on the bottom edges of 6o leaves near the center of the textblock. While a poor copy, this is a rather scarce collection of poetry related to the U.S. Civil War, dedicate to the “memory of the Confederate Dead” with poetry primarily by those in the war or personally effected by it.
