New York: Harper and Brothers, 1914. New York: Harper and Brothers. 1914. 534 pages, frontis, 15 illustrations. Gray cloth with cover design and spine titles in black. Text clean, binding sound. Sunning to spine, text block square and tight. Good copy. The copyright page has the Harper's "k-o" designation which stands for October, 1914, which should identify this copy as a first edition, but it is either a variant binding [gray, not red] or a later printing of the first edition. Wide ranging autobiography of the noted physician who served in the 4th Alabama Cavalry. He provides a very interesting and graphic first hand account of death on the battlefield, most notably at Chickamauga, as well as daily life in the field. First Edition. Good.
