1 Street, James The Civil War (an Unvarnished Account of the Late But Still Lively Hostilities)
New York The Dial Press 1953 First Edition Hard Cover Maxwell, John Alan 
Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Marbled blue boards quarterbound in gray cloth. The spine is stamped in black. Pictorial endpapers. 144pps., with numerous illustrations. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has shallow chipping at the spine-ends, a short closed tear at the bottom of the front panel, and two small soil-marks on the rear panel. The original price is intact. ".Caution: there are no sacred cows in this book, a fingertip history of the Civil War that may anger you or amuse you -- but will surely inform you. Its author, James Street, is a 'history buff' who cannot resist the little fires of history that burn in the corners most people overlook. Therefore, this informal, little book is filled with historical asides that will amaze you. This is the kind of history you never read in text books. The author begins by saying: 'We Americans cannot even agree on a name for our Civil War Between The States, much less on what caused it or exactly what happened.' Then he tells what caused it and many of the things that happened." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books.
