THE POWDER FLASK BOOK - FIRST EDITION !!! - by Ray
Riling - 1953 New Hope, Pa. 495 pgs. First Edition of what is
considered the Bible for Powder Flask collecting. Thousands of
illustrations, information that includes the makers of flasks but
also other related fields. Covers both military and civilian flasks.
Riling obviously didn't publish this until he could be as complete
as possible. There isn't another reference source that comes
close. Dust jacket and book are in excellent condition.
1853 UNCLE TOM'S CABIN (IN FRENCH) - A spectacular
edition of Harriet Beecher Stowe's famed novel. The original
was released in the United States in 1852. This is the French
Edition, printed in Paris in 1853. It has red marbled covers (I
believe this may have been a special binding as there is an old
French book binders tag on the inside of one cover). The
binding is very tight, almost as if the book were never read.
Complete - no illustrations. Only flaw in the book is that the
front end paper is partially stuck to the front binding cover.
A TRUE STORY OF CHAS. W. QUANTRELL AND HIS
GUERRILLA BAND - 1923 by John P. Burch as told by Capt.
Harrison Trow. 266 pgs. This is about as fine as you can find for
this book. Cloth covers, extremely tight binding and clean as a
whistle. I would actually have trouble believing that anyone has
even read this copy. The scans make the cover look almost
wickery but is not like that. I had another clean copy of this
once and thought that one was nice but I think this one blows
LEGISLATIVE HONORS TO THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM
LINCOLN - Obsequies of President Lincoln in the Legislature
of New York - Albany - 1865, 118 pgs. Basically the speaches in
the New York Legislature to the memory of Lincoln after the
assassination. Book has issues, mainly with the cover. It is
intact but cloth is split at the spine and rough around all the
edges. The interior is very good.
1861 REVISED ARMY REGULATIONS MANUAL - ID'd TO
THE 142nd OHIO VOL. INFANTRY - Standard Civil War
Army Regulations Manual dated 1862 and is ID'd in period ink
inside cover to Fred D. Sturges. Sturges enlisted into the
142nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry on May 2, 1864 as an Adjutant
and was commissioned the same day into the Field and Staff of
the regiment. He mustered out on Sept. 2, 1864 at Camp
Chase, Ohio. The 142nd was a 100 day regiment whose only
real claim to fame was guarding a supply train through the
Wilderness to General Grant's front near Cold Harbor. Inside
of manual is in good condition but cover shows tremendous
I have recently acquired nearly an entire set of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate
Armies. These books were compiled in the 1880's & 90's and included correspondence and battle
reports. They were compiled chronologically therefore allowing all paperwork for battles to be placed
in succesive volumes. These are reprints done by the National Historical Society and distributed by
Broadfoot Publishing in 1985. All are in nearly new condition with only minor scuffing (if any at
all) and some have some minor 'wrinkling' at the top and bottom of the spines ( from packing and
this should be able to be worked out ). There aren't too many people looking for the entire 128
volume set and many are only looking for the volumes on certain battles (not to mention trying to
ship 128 volumes ). Relic hunters find these extremely helpful whern looking for exact ground to dig
and for those that want to understand the battles more, these are the source for the battle reports and
correspondence of both armies. Therefore I am offering these in sets by volumes of battles. Each set is
priced for those in the set and THE PRICE DOES INCLUDE SHIPPING. More will be listed later.

1861 REVISED ARMY REGULATIONS MANUAL- 539 pages Printed in 1861
by J.G.L. Brown by authority of the War Department. This was the standard
regulations manual for the Army during the War. Good condition with
typical scuffing. Some fraying on the upper and lower edge of the spine.
INSTRUCTIONS TO MUSTERING OFFICERS - IDENTIFIED TO THE
57TH OHIO VETERAN VOLUNTEER INFANTRY - Approx. 5" x 7 1/2" -
50 pages with paper covers. Identified in period ink on both the front
cover and the title page "Owen Francis / 57 OVVI". Francis was a
Lieutenant in the 57th, mustering in in Sept., 1861 and mustering out
in Jan., 1865. While in the regiment fought at Shiloh, Vicksburg,
Jackson, MS, Resaca, Kennesaw Mtn., Atlanta, Jonesboro and
Fayetteville. Covers are intact but have some minor paper missing on
the bottom and top of spine - darn good for this type of manual.
INFANTRY TACTICS MANUAL BELONGING TO GENERAL
WILLIAM HUMPHREY - Volume 2 only of Casey's 'Infantry
Tactics' with a great period ink inscription on the title page:
"Capt. Wm. Humphrey / 2nd Mich Inf / Upton's Hill, Va / Sept
4th, 1862". Humphrey was wounded twice at Spotsylvania C.H.,
Va. He was commissioned as Capt. in the 2nd Michigan Infantry
on 5/25/61, promoted to Major 6/8/62, Colonel 2/16/63 and
Brigadier General by Brevet on 8/1/64. He signed this manual as
Captain three months after his promotion to Major - for
whatever reason but the ID is ironclad. Opposite the title page
with the ink ID is a late life photo of Humphrey. Good used but
not abused condition.
HISTORY OF THE 10th MICHIGAN CAVALRY - by Luther S.
Trowbridge - late Colonel of the regiment. 67 pages. Detroit, 1905. This
is a very tough regimental to obtain. Short, sweet and very well done
also if you're looking for photos of the officers, showing 98 members of
the regiment and one reunion photograph along with a fold out map.
Presented by a member of the 10th Cav., Charles E. Souie. Binding is
tight, minor scuffing on cover.
BOOK - SLAVERY A CENTURY AGO - by Anthony Benezet and John
Wesley 1858 Philadelphia - 138 pgs. (approx 4" x 6") Deals with the
thoughts on slavery in the 1700's based on the writings of the two
authors based mainly on the trade of Great Britain and the colonies as
well as America itself. Tight binding - some scuffs and scrapes.
DOWLING'S EDITION OF HARDEE'S RIFLE AND INFANTRY
TACTICS MANUAL - 1862 - WRAPS - 152 pgs., New York, 1862 -
Colorful cover edition showing a zouave painting the title on a wall
with the assistance of two other soldiers. Soft cover wraps (all
present) which is quite remarkable considering the use that it
appears to have had. It is entirely intact but well worn, is stained as
can be seen in the photos, and has many dog-eared pages. I have
owned many manuals, none like this edition. Great piece for a camp
or personal effects display.
1863 MANUAL - INFORMATION ON MUSTERING OFFICERS
AND OTHERS OF KINDRED DUTIES - 4 1/2" X 7" - Washington
1863 - 55 pgs - wraps. Instructional booklet for the title
mentioned. Complete with fold out forms this is one of the
manuals rarely seen. The nature of a soft covered manual
surviving this long is rare and this one is in extremely nice
condition. One stain on the back cover going into several pages in
the back (see photos) and one minor corner chip on front cover.
Other than that, hard to believe the condition.
MUSIC BOOK - TRUMPET OF FREEDOM - 1864 - 63 pages
containing 46 songs. Approx 6 3/8" x 9 3/4". Desirable
music book with patriotic songs. When this can be found
the price is normally in the $400 range and in 50 years of
collecting and dealing has been the first one I've had.
There is staining and some rough edges but is intact which
is a wonder considering the fragile nature of the paper.
