AUCTION 24

“The title is misleading”

<p>Upper wrapper</p>


48.    

[BIOGRAPHY]. MURPHY, Charles J. Reminiscences of the War of the Rebellion, and of the Mexican War [wrapper title]. New York: F.J. Ficker, 79 & 81 William St., 1882. [1] 2-80 pp. 8vo (22.5 x 15.5 cm), original grey printed wrappers in modern marbled wrappers. Upper wrapper chipped, wrappers darkened. Interior is fine. Author’s presentation printed on the upper wrapper.

First edition. Connor & Faulk 622. Garrett & Goodwin, p. 238. Haferkorn, p. 16. Tutorow 3663.

This was written to justify a claim against the government. As Connor & Faulk note, “The title is misleading,” because the text contains almost nothing on the Mexican-American War.

($300.00-$600.00)
