Camp Fires of the Confederacy

Louisville, KY: Courier-Journal Job Printing Company, 1899. Hardbound. Full embossed leather (spine gone). All edges are gilt. 560 pp., few illustrations. See description. Item #119852

This copy, though in dire need of rebinding (spine gone, covers off, text block intact and solid) is unique in that it bears a dedication bookplate stating as follows: {to} The Confederate Soldiers' Home, Pikesville, MD from John Brown + Sons, May 2, 1908" written in contemporary ink. John Brown and Sons was a Hardware and Machinests' Supplies firm on Pratt Street in Baltimore, and their letterhead makes up the bookplate. Possibly related directly to the Abolishonist, thus a unique association piece. Certainly associated to the hardware store, where the first man to die in the Civil Ware was removed to after he was shot but before he died, and where he was given first aid by the store owner.
