Houston: F. B. Chilton, 1911. Hard Cover. Good+ binding. Item #5995

Quarto. 372, [2] pp., plates. First edition, inscribed by Chilton. Original, unrepaired bindings are seldom seen; this copy is in the original boards with titling in gold on the front cover, but has been rebacked and recornered in maroon leatherette with original backstrip preserved and laid in, all housed in cloth slipcase. Binding is only lightly shelfworn and contents are tight, except for 2 leaves and one plate that are a trifle pulled and loose, but still attached; early and minor tideline along the very bottom margin throughout much of the book, often very faint; contemporary notes on the first blank pointing the reader to a few marked pages in the text with annotations or marginal bracketing in blue pencil. All plates are present as called for, including a frontispiece portrait of General Hood and fifteen other portraits and illustrations (one depicting the battle flags of the Confederacy reproduced in color on heavy gray paper with debossed border and an accompanying ode by John Dimitry). An uncommon book by all accounts, but this copy is all the more uncommon bearing a bold and remarkably warm presentation inscription to Henry B. [Brashear] Bringhurst, First National Bank, Houston, TX and dated October 25, 1921. Chilton writes, "In memory of your departed father who was my close friend for over half a century and because you possess so many of his marked and noble characteristics the author is proud to claim you too as his friend." Like Chilton, Both Henry B. and his father George R. Bringhurst were prominent Houstonians. George Bringhurst was a businessman and also served as the secretary and treasurer for the City of Houston. And Henry was notable figure in the First National Bank. Remarkably uncommon presentation copy. Dornbusch III, 1199; Howes C-386; Rader 769.
