First edition of Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant, in publisher’s deluxe full sheepskin binding.

Octavo, [two volumes], 584pp [Vol. I]; 647pp [Vol. II]. Publisher’s full sheepskin binding, 4 raised bands, gilt title over red and black morocco labels, marbled leaf ends. Rubbing to covers and along spine, solid hinges, solid text blocks. Frontispiece portraits of Grant in both volumes. Complete with over 50 illustrations and maps, including both facsimile fold-outs.

Published shortly after his death, the Personal Memoirs of President Grant are held in high regard by historians and general readers alike. Grant was initially opposed to writing his memoirs, but wished to leave his family financially stable after his death. The books were sold in multiple formats ranging in price from $3.50 to $12.00 in 1885.
