THE SLAVEHOLDING INDIANS: As Slaveholder and Secessionist / As Participants in the Civil War / Under Reconstruction (3 volumes)
Cleveland: The Arthur H. Clark Company, 1915. Hardcover. 3 vols. 394p; 403p; 419p. Ex-library. A set of three red cloth hardcover books in fair to good condition. The cloth is a bit ragged at the head and foot of each volume's spine, and the corners are rubbed and lightly bumped. Cloth soiled on each volume, most visibly on volume I. Spines tanned and marked with bold, conspicuous call numbers. Old bookplates and card pockets inside each volume's front cover. In volume I, the front endpapers are detached, leaving the front hinge shaky; the top corners of pages 131-134 are torn, the edges of pages 209-214 are chipped (text unaffected); and a blank rear endpaper is badly torn along the edge. Otherwise, the text is clean across the set, and the binding is secure enough for normal handling. Item #174125
