Life and Deeds of General Sherman Including the Story of his Great March to the Sea Being a Graphic Narrative of His Boyhood and Early Life; Education at West Point…

Philadelphia and Chicago: H. J. Smith & Co., publishers, 1891. 12mo (7.9” x 5.4”), full brown cloth stamped in gilt and black. Specimen pages (approx. 80 pp.) and plates, subscription leaves (none missing), with the name of a single subscriber, “Mildred E. Wade 13 Court[?] Street.” Spine design stamped on back cover; leather spine sample mounted to front paste down; fpd inscribed by L. E. Wade of Belfast, Maine. CONDITION: Very good, light wear to covers, offsetting to the front free endpapers; moderate staining to contents, light creasing.

An attractive salesman’s dummy for the “Memorial Edition” biography of General Sherman, published in the year he died.

The original owner of this volume was L. E. Wade of Belfast, Maine. Rather amusingly, the only subscriber’s name appearing in the subscription leaves is that of “Mildred E. Wade. 13 Court[?] Street”—presumably Mr. Wade’s mother. In the 1890s, L. E. Wade was a partner in Wade, Heald & Co. and Wade & Heald, wholesale commissions, fruit, and produce businesses based in Rockland, Maine.

REFERENCES: Zinman, Canvassing Books, 1223-1224; The Rockland Courier-Gazette (Rockland, Maine, May 2, 1893; September 26, 1893).
