Octavo. viii, -263 pp. First edition. Rebound in early plum cloth without titling. This copy is lacking the frontispiece but is otherwise complete, though pages vii-viii precede pages v/vi. Binding is a trifle rubbed and with a forward lean, but is solid and tasteful; contents are clean. A notable history of the Parker Battery that while written two decades after the war and embellished by memory has material on several of the significant battles as well as reminiscences of Figg's time at Point Lookout prison.
