Product Description

This is another interesting piece being offered, it is an identified first edition book titled “The Soldier Boy or Tom Somers in the Army”. The Copyright is 1863 and it was printed in 1864 by Boston: Lee and Shepard. It measures 7” x 5” x 2” and has 333 pages.

It basically tells the story and adventures of a young soldier in the Army of the Potomac and how he endured the hardships of the Civil War. This book was part of a Civil War collection I recently acquired and with the book was the soldier record of William Sanford of the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery. In the book itself it is signed by a William C. Sanford, I assume he was the original owner.

The book is not in the best condition but it is intact and all the pages are complete. The covers and binding are loose but it is an excellent reading copy – and it is a 1st edition printed during the war.
