DESCRIPTION: Easton Press's LONG OUT OF PRINT FULL LEATHER COMPLETE 3-VOLUME SIGNED edition of THE CIVIL WAR A NARRATIVE by SHELBY FOOTE. THIS IS A SCARCE VINTAGE HEIRLOOM EASTON SET WITH GORGEOUS GILT IMPRESSIONS TO THE BOARDS AND SPINE with GORGEOUS ILLUSTRATIONS.IT IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY-PRIZED EDITIONS (SETS) OF THIS HISTORICAL WORK ON THE CIVIL WAR. THESE SIGNED EDITIONS WILL ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE OVER TIME DUE TO FOOTE'S UNTIMELY DEATH IN 2005. This beautifully written trilogy of books on the American Civil War is not only a piece of first-rate history, but also a marvelous work of literature. Shelby Foote brings a skilled novelist's narrative power to this great epic. Many know Foote for his prominent role as a commentator on Ken Burns's PBS series about the Civil War. These three books, however, are his legacy. His southern sympathies are apparent: the first volume opens by introducing Confederate President Jefferson Davis, rather than Abraham Lincoln. But they hardly get in the way of the great story Foote tells. This hefty three volume set should be on the bookshelf. Of any Civil War buff. CONDITION: Books are in LIKE NEW condition for their age with only a few faint rubs to the gilt page ends (SEE PICS FOR BETTER DETAILS). NO ATTACHED BOOKPLATES, WRITING FROM PREVIOUS OWNER, ETC. It is an AMAZING SET!
