A rare edition of Robert Tomes’ ‘Battles of America by Sea and Land’. This 1878 edition is notable for being published at the onset of the American Civil War. Later editions featured entire sections devoted to the Civil War, however, this set focused on Revolutionary War and War of 1812 events as well as interactions with Native American Indians and Mexican campaigns. While the contents of this set are highly desirable, the full-page engravings make this work very popular. The illustrations, many by Alonzo Chappel, depict military and battle scenes, maps, and portraits of commanders.
