Jamison, D[avid]. F[lavel]. (1810-1864)  
The Life and Times of Bertrand du Guesclin: A History of the Fourteenth Century (complete in two volumes)
 Picture
Publisher: Charleston John Russell 1864.
First Edition. Octavos, Full vellum, frontispiece portrait in volume I, xvi, 287 and viii, 314 pages. Condition: Near Fine.
     Confederate imprint. Attractive set of this account of Breton knight and French military commander du Guesclin's daring deeds. Brave and chivalrous knights in battle would have appealed to Confederate gentlemen, but the book is more interesting today for its printing history. Jamison shipped the manuscript through the Yankee blockade of Charleston to his English publisher, speculating in the preface on the chances of it reaching England. It is unclear how many of the published sets made it back through the blockade to the Confederacy. Jamison, who had been the president of South Carolina's Secession Convention in 1860, died in the year of publication. Harwell #44. This set is bound in full vellum with gilt ruled borders on all boards, raised bands, du Guesclin's armorial crest stamped in gilt on upper boards, spines titled in gilt on black and red labels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, inside dentelles. Volume I has a few short tears with some associated creases at fore edges of about 4 leaves at rear of textblock. Both volumes show light external rubs, wear, and mild soil. Bindings remain sound. Handsome set, uncommon in bindings other than cloth. History & Politics

Confederate Women (Contributions in American History, Number 38)

Publisher: Westport Greenwood Press (1975).
Octavo, Full cloth, black and white photographs, xiv, 204 pages. Condition: Fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket in Mylar protector.
     Revealing portrait of Southern women aided by their own letters and diaries. Wiley argues that the Civil War was, for the Confederacy, a women's war and that these ladies were anything but the clinging vines often portrayed in romantic literature. They were ardent secessionists, were indefatigable in running the farms, families, and infirmaries in their men's absence, and earned the first measured gains in equality for women. Bound in orange cloth over boards spine titled in black. Minor edge wear to jacket, with a 2" tear at lower fore corner of front panel which has been taped from behind by prior owner. Americana
