. Large folio (16" x 21-1/2") bound in half sheep and marbled boards. Includes a number of triple sheets. Extensive reportage of the war with numerous maps throughout. In addition to the war news, the papers have ads and other news. Bound in at the front is a rather scarce broadside: "The New Year's Address of the Newsmen of the New York Herald" illustrated around the border with portraits of Lincoln and various cabinet members and generals. The broadside has a few small library stamps; otherwise, it and the newspapers are generally clean with only occasional browning and a handful of long horizontal tears with no loss. While one occasionally sees individual Civil War issues of this paper offered for sale, rarely does a run, even this short (though more than 2" thick), appear on the market. Spine rubbed. Overall a Very Good and fascinating compilation (Item ID: 007807)
