2 Athearn, Robert G. (edited by) Soldier in the West : The Civil War Letters of Alfred Lacey Hough
Philadelphia, PA University of Pennsylvania Press 1957 First Edition Cloth 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 250pps. The heel of the spine is lightly bumped and there is a small speck atop the textblock. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is faintly sunned, lightly soiled, and has a small, closed tear atop the front panel; the original price (5.00) is intact. With an Introduction by John Newbold Hough. ".In 1861, Alfred Lacey Hough, a thirty-five-year-old commission merchant, left his wife, his two sons, and a comfortable home in Philadelphia to enlist as a sergeant in the Pennsylvania Volunteers. In his letters to his wife, Hough -- who achieved the rank of captain and then brevet lieutenant colonel -- revealed his complete devotion to Northern war aims, for he was an ardent champion of the Union cause. Each letter to his 'Dearest Mary' is the expression of a conscientious soldier who took great care to preserve for his descendents all of his experiences and observations during four crucial years of his life. Written by an educated, literate soldier, these letters are at once a valuable primary source for the historian and an exciting recreation of the events and moods of war. Hough served in the Western theater of operations, and his accounts of such battles as Corinth and Chickamauga, of the incidents along the route of Sherman's march on Atlanta, contain all the color and impact of eyewitness description."

Recollections of Alexander H. Stephens (His Diary When Kept A Prisoner At Fort Warren, Boston Harbour, 1865), Avary, Myrta Lockett (Edited, with a Biographical Study by)
3 Avary, Myrta Lockett (Edited, with a Biographical Study by) Recollections of Alexander H. Stephens (His Diary When Kept A Prisoner At Fort Warren, Boston Harbour, 1865)
New York Doubleday Page & Co. 1910 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good in full red cloth. Both the spine and the front board are gilt-stamped (all of which is still brilliant). 572pps., with tissue-guarded frontispiece of the subject. No dustjacket. Touches of wear to the tips and the spine-ends; the head of the spine does have a 1/4" tear in the cloth. Light foxing around the area of the endpapers; all other pages are, however, quite clean and bright. The binding is square and tight. To give the provenance of this book: it is from the library of the esteemed William Emerson Ambler. His bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown and his synopsis of the volume is attached to the ffep. Quite an interesting and scarce volume, in nice condition. This book is part of a renowned collection put together by Judge William Emerson Ambler of Cleveland, Ohio in the early part of the last century, adding to the collection his father, Chester Ambler had begun in the mid 1800ís. Ambler died in 1925 and these wonderful items have been kept by his family all this time. As a lawyer Judge Ambler's work was done chiefly in the State of Michigan, where he became prominent in public affairs, serving as state senator and as judge of probate. He moved to Cleveland in 1891 and became one of the leading real estate men. He was born in Medina, Ohio, December 18, 1845, as son of Chester C. and Margaret (Elgin) Ambler. In 1859 the family moved to Hillsdale, Michigan. He attended Hillsdale College, graduated Bachelor of Science from Albion College in 1865, and pursued his law studies in the Albany Law School at New York, where he was a classmate of President William McKinley. Pentwater, Michigan was his home for over twenty years ( the family home is now a bed and breakfast ); his work and attainments gained him a high estimation in the public. He was elected a member of the State Senate in 1878 and again in 1880. Judge Ambler's hobby was the collecting of autographs and autographic letters and manuscripts; he had one of the largest collections of the kind in the country.

Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America. In February 1945, American Marines plunged into the surf at Iwo Jima -- and into history. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, they battled to the island's highest peak. And after climbing through a landscape of hell itself, they raised a flag. Now the son of one of the flagraisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever."

"This fascinating book tells the story of the Civil War as seen from the Union side. Through his brilliant and stirring narrative, Bruce Catton conveys the human aspect of history and translates meticulously researched historical fact into an absorbing chronicle of the war. 'This Hallowed Ground' deals with the entire scope of the Civil War -- from the months of unrest and hysteria that led to Fort Sumter to the days of tragedy and hope that followed Appomattox. Along with the author, readers will relive the shock and shell and glory of the war. The true greatness of this book, however, lies in Catton's deeply moving analysis of the issues, and his search for the true meaning of the conflict."

One To Count Cadence, Crumley, James
8 Crumley, James One To Count Cadence
New York Random House 1969 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full brown cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Blue-gray topstain. Octavo. 338pps. Stated First Printing. There is very faint dustspotting to the closed page-edges and a previous owner's name is neatly penned on the front pastedown (behind the jacket-flap). Otherwise clean, tight, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no dog-ears, crimping, thumbing, or creasing.

A very nice, collector's-quality copy. ".The time is the late summer of 1962. The place is Clark Air Force Base in the Philippine Islands. A new sergeant, 'Slag' Krummel, arrives from the States to take over the 721st Communication Security Detachment, a collection of dissatisfied, rebellious enlistees. Narrated by Krummel, 'One To Count Cadence' begins as a story of the peacetime Army, the drinking and whoring, the defiance of officers and regulations, the camaraderie of lonely men and women with too much time on their hands. Comic, absurd, violent, 'One To Count Cadence' is a mirror of that part of a generation reared on violence, actors in the American wars of the 1960's who can no longer believe in the myths and institutions of their country. Exploring with fidelity and compassion the men who make war and are, like all of us, its victims, it is least of all a war novel. It is a book about friendship -- especially that of Krummel and Private Joe Morning, 'The best of us, the most damned of us all.'."

"...The Greek island of Cephallonia -- peaceful, remote, famed for its beauty, its light, its mythic history -- and only just beginning to enter the twentieth century when the tide of World War II rolls onto its shores. This is the setting for De Bernieres's lyrical, heartbreaking, and hilarious chonicle of the days and nights of the island's inhabitants over fifty tumultuous years.
'It was an island filled with gods,' writes Dr. Iannis, Cephallonia's healer and fledgling historian. And though the people who fill the island in 1940 may be less divine than their Olympian forebears, they are nonetheless divinely human, and none more so than the doctor's daughter, Pelagia..."

".For over two hundred years no Indian force in America was so powerful and feared as the Iroquois League. But these Iroquois occupied and controlled a vast wilderness empire which beckoned like a precious gem to foreign powers. France and England secured toeholds and suddenly each was claiming as its own this land of the Iroquois. Alliance with the Indians was the key; whichever power controlled them could destroy the other. 'Wilderness Empire' is the gripping narrative of the eighteenth-century struggle of these two powers to win for themselves the allegiance of the Indians in a war for territorial dominance, yet without letting these Indians know that the prize of the war would be this very Iroquois land. It is the story of English strength hamstrung by incredible incompetance, of French power sapped by devastating corruption. It is the story of the English, Indian and French individuals whose lives intertwine in the greatest territorial struggle in American history -- the French and Indian War."

"James Connolly was one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland. He was named vice-president of the Provisional Government of the Irish Republic, and was Commandant-General of the insurgent forces fighting in Dublin. After the defeat of the rising by British troops, he was condemned to death by the British and executed by a firing squad, at the age of forty-eight, while strapped to a chair because his wounds did not permit him to stand. In his introduction to this volume, Ellis provides, in addition to a compact biography of Connolly, a description of his work and its place in revolutionary thought."

Kommandant Repp, who is known as a master sniper, decides to hone his sniping abilities by taking a little target practice at the remaining laborers in his own prison camp. But one man escapes and becomes the key to solving the mystery of the cold, calculating Kommandmant Repp and his plans for ending the war.
Repp was the master sniper whose deadly talent had come to the notice of British Intelligence as the linchpin of a desperate Nazi plot to reverse the fortunes of the Third Reich at the eleventh hour. But what was the nature of the weapon that Repp was to aim -- and who was to be his last target? Allied Intelligence officers Leets, from the U.S., and Outhwaite from England are dispatched to identify and abort his lethal mission. And when they finally learn the truth, the Second World War's deadliest race against time is on..."
