1 John Brown's Body

Benet, Stephen Vincent; Kredel, Fritz & Chappell, WarrenGood+, Rinehart & Company, 1954, 


Gift Inscription to previous owner inside front cover. ; 8 books in 1 with Introduction. Poem with Illustrations by Fritz Kredel and Warren Chappell. A Note on the illustrations: The decorations and opening illustrations for this edition have been made by Fritz Kredel. The portraits are translations into line, by Warren Chappell, from contemporary photographs by Matthew Brady and others."As this is a poem, not a history, it has seemed unneccessary to me to encumber it with notes, bibliography, and other historical apparatus. Nevertheless-besides such original sources as the Official Records, the series of articles in Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, and the letters, memoirs, and autobiographies of the various leaders involved-I should like to acknowledge my indebtedness to Channing's The War for Southern Independence and McMaster's The United States Under Lincoln's Administration, to Oswald Garrison Villard's John Brown: A Biography Fifty Years After, to the various Lives of Lincoln by Lord Charnwood, Carl Sandburg, and Ida Tarbell and the monumental work of Nicolay and Hay, to Nathaniel Wright Stephenson's Abraham Lincoln: An Autobiography, and finally, my very particular debt to that remarkable first-hand account of life in the Army of the Potomac, Four Brothers in Blue, by Capt. Robert Goldthwaite Carter, from which the stories of Fletcher the sharpshooter and the two brothers at Fredericksburg are taken...The account of the defeated Union army pouring into Washington after the first Bull Run is founded on a passage in Whitman's Specimen Days and Collect...On page 56, in the inscription written by John Brown for his own monument, the dates of the deaths of his two sons are incorrectly given. They are so given in the original manuscript, now in the possession of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, and I have not felt at liberty to alter the original wording."; 2 x 8.1 x 5.6 Inches,
