New York: Privately printed by the De Vinne Press, 1905. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. Item #6071

Octavo. vi, 114 pp., frontis. First edition,signed and inscribed by John Paxton. As issued, in blue cloth with title in gold on the front cover and spine; top edge gilt. A fairly nice copy with limited shelfwear; top edge of the front board is bumped in two spots, at one of which there is a small tear in the cloth; early tape repair to the bottom corner of the front free endpaper, with offsetting to the subsequent blank, otherwise, internally, a clean copy of an uncommon book. In 1907 Neale Publishing Co. would acquired the overrun and insert a single sheet announcement identifying this previously privately printed book as being "Published and sold by The Neale Publishing Company...." This copy does not bear that announcement. Krick writes, "The majority of this slender volume is given up to publication of Paxton's letters written as an officer in the 27th Virginia Infantry, then an aide to Jackson and finally as brigadier commanding the famed Stonewall Brigade. Their content is interesting and sometimes moving" Krick 374. Nevins echoes Krick, "This volume, privately printed for the family, is highly important for the warmly human comments of one of the commanders of the Stonewall Brigade" Nevins I, p. 142. An uncommon book with a warm inscription to Paxton's "friend and classmate, Robert E. Scott." Howes P-147; In Taller Cotton 148.
