Square 8vo, decorated boards, 200pp, 10 hand colored maps, many wood-block illustrations within text. The maps each have an index that identify places on the maps. Civil War geography apparently is very scarce, especially this year. We find no example in either the Baskes or Rumsey collections, and no 1864 edition in the OCLC. David Camp was the Principle of the Connecticut State Normal School and State Superintendent of Common Schools. Published by O.D. Case and Company and printed in Chicago by George Sherwood & Co. A scarce issue.


Condition: B

Worn covers, interior tight but one page is torn with loss. Maps are generally very good, but the US map has stains at lower right corner and a short split at lower centerfold in margin.

Estimate: $120 - $200
