James Gilreath, Rare Book Division, Library of Congress. "Only once in a great while does a volume strike me with the clear thought: 'I wish I'd written that book myself.' Confederate Imprints hit me just so. I wish I'd done it myself, and as well." Robert K. Krick, Historian, Fredericksburg National Battlefield Park. With 142 illustrations. Condition: Good / Good.
