A beautiful antique Civil War set by a major 19th-century American historian, handsomely bound in leather, and profusely illustrated. This is a beautiful 1866 First Edition three-volume set of Benson J. Lossings Pictorial History of the Civil War in the United States of America (a work which I believe was later revised and reissued as Lossings Pictorial Field-Book of the Civil War).
Each volume has a full-page steel-engraved frontispiece while the text is illustrated with hundreds of woodcut engravings: portraits, landscapes, battle sites, forts, weapons, uniforms, maps, plans, etc. To students of the American Revolution and the Civil War, Benson J. At the age of 35, he had already built a strong reputation as an editor, author and engraver of woodcut illustrations.
By the final year of the Civil War, he was known throughout the country as an eminent historian and author of handsome illustrated histories, beginning with his famous two-volume Pictorial Field-Book of the American Revolution. In 1865, Lossing embarked on an even more ambitious project a narrative sketchbook history of the Civil War.He personally traveled thousands of miles through the Middle Atlantic states and the South, visiting the battlegrounds, the cities, and other sites scarred by the War Between the States. At every stop he sketched what he saw with his own eyes and whenever possible interviewed residents, soldiers and other witnesses, determined to create a complete written and illustrated portrait of the war. Lossing once described this Herculean effort. The task of making a record of the events of the late Civil War in our Republic is not a pleasant one for an American citizen. It would be more consonant with his wishes to bury in oblivion all knowledge of those events which compose the materials of the sorrowful story of a strife among his brethren, of terrible energy and woeful operations.
But that privilege is denied him. The din of the conflict was heard all over the world, and people of all nations were spectators of the scene. The fact cannot be hidden.
It has become a part of the history of the inhabitants of the earth, and will forever occupy a conspicuous place in the annals of mankind. What remains for the American citizen to do, is to see that the stylus of history shall make a truthful record. I imposed upon myself the task of making, so far as my ability and an honest purpose would permit, a correct delineation of the events of the conflict, carefully drawn by the pen and pencil, for the consideration and advantage of posterity.I entitle my work A History of the Civil War, but I ask for it no higher consideration than that of a faithful chronicle, having the form of history, and aspiring to perform its highest duty, namely: to inspire mankind with a love of justice and a hatred of its opposite, and of every thing that impedes the onward and upward march of humanity. Wishing to secure the advantages of a personal knowledge, by actual examination, of the principal battle-fields of the war, and the topography of the regions over which the great armies moved, and to make sketches of whatever might seem useful as illustrations of the subject, I did not begin the preparation of this work for the press until the close of the conflict, late in the spring of 1865. Then the proportions of that conflict were known, and its several events were so well comprehended, that it was not a difficult task to give each act and scene its relative position and due prominence. I was afforded free access to all official reports allowed to be made public; and chiefly from these and the drawings of engineers, the narratives of marches, battles and sieges were compiled, with accompanying maps and plans. In the work will be found the portraits of the prominent actors, civil and military, of both parties to the conflict; also views and plans of battle-grounds; head-quarters of officers; weapons and ships of war; forts; arsenals; medals of honor, and other gifts of gratitude; costumes of soldiers; flags; banners; badges; and a great variety of other objects whereby the eye may be instructed concerning the materials used in the conflict. Volumes II and III were published two years after the first volume, in part because the original publisher, George W. Childs, relinquished the publication of the work due to business obligations, but also because Lossing had no access to the South during wartime or for months afterward. In the Introduction to Volume II the author writes. An essential part of the original plan of the writer, and which has been carried out, was to make a personal visit to the principal battle-fields and other places of interest connected with the Civil War.
This could not be done within the Confederate lines during the war, and it was difficult to do so in many places for several months after the conflict had ceased After the first volume was completed, in Spring of 1866, the writer made a journey of several thousand miles in visiting the historical localities within the bounds of the Confederacy, observing the topography of battle-fields and the region of the movements of the great armies, making sketches, conversing with actors in the scenes, procuring documents, and in every possible way gathering valuable materials for the work. The writer bore a cordial letter from General Grant to any officer commanding a military post within the late Slave-labor States, asking him to afford the bearer every facility in his power. Howard the writer was also indebted for a similar letter, directed to any agent of the Freedmens Bureau.
These, and the kind services everywhere proffered by, and received from, persons who had been in the Confederate armies, procured for the author extraordinary facilities for gathering historical materials, and he was enabled to send and bring home a large amount of valuable matter. This had to be examined and carefully collated.
In this and kindred labor, and in the construction of small illustrative maps, and the preparation of the sketches for the engraver, all by his own hands, months were consumed, and the delay in the appearance of the second volume was the consequence. The resulting 3-volume set is astounding in its scope and detail.Whether discussing generals, large battles or isolated incidents, Lossing has the uncanny ability to engage the reader on a personal level. Combined, the three volumes equal almost 2000 pages, yet Lossing never loses sight of the individual stories that add a human texture to the overall history. Here, for example, Lossing relates the story of John Clem, a 12-year-old who served with the Twenty-Second Michigan Infantry. Probably the youngest person who ever bore arms in battle was engaged in the strife near the Chickamauga River. His name was John Clem, and his home was at Newark, Ohio. He was a volunteer in the Twenty-Second Michigan Infantry, and was only twelve years of age. He was serving as a marker of regiment in a review at Nashville, when he was brought to the notice of General Rosecrans, who made him welcome at head-quarters. He performed faithfully whatever duty was imposed upon him while the Army of the Cumberland was making its way to and across the Tennessee River; and in the Battle of Chickamauga he won for himself the rank of a sergeant by a deed of great valor.
He had been in the thickest of the fight, and three bullets had passed through his hat, when, separated from his companions, he was seen running, with a musket in his hand, by a mounted Confederate colonel, who called out Stop! The boy halted, and brought his musket to an order, when the colonel rode up to make him a prisoner. With swift motion young Clem brought his gun up and fired, killing the colonel instantly. He escaped, and for this achievement on the battle-field he was made a sergeant, put on duty at the head-quarters of the Army of the Cumberland, and placed on the roll of honor by General Rosecrans. You can see an engraving of John Clem among the photos further down this page.I could never hope to summarize a work of this magnitude in my own words, so to give you the most accurate description of this rare Civil War three-volume set, I have provided some helpful details below. For added convenience, I arranged my summaries of the illustrations into categories, distinguishing between portraits, landscapes, battle sites, etc.
Further down the page, you can see some photos of the books, along with some of the engravings. I hope youll take a few moments to have a look.
