Charleston: Evans & Cogswell, 1861. Soft Cover. near Very Good binding. Item #6116
12mo. 192 pp. Second edition, revised and enlarged. Confederate imprint. As issued in red cloth over flexible covers with marbled endpapers and a blue paper title label on the front cover. Front cover has been discreetly reattached; some loss to the cloth at the bottom corner of the front cover; some light staining to the covers, but largely a well preserved copy; textblock is square and tight; toning throughout; minuscule pencil notations fill up the recto of the rear free endpaper and seem to relate to the contents of the Hand-Book. An early and uncommon Confederate edition issued just after the outset of the Civil War when the Confederacy was reprinting the available uUnion handbooks before producing their own. The condition is remarkable. Parrish & Willingham 5025.
