Reminiscences of Confederate Service (Signed & Inscribed)
Captain Francis W Dawson


About this Book

A very rare signed and inscribed edition of privately printed 100 copies of Captain Francis W Dawson’s memoir by The News and Courier Book Press.

Blue-gray cloth binding decorated with red stamped C.S.A and embellishments. 240 x 150 mm. (9 3/8 x 5 7/8″). 180 pp. Author signed: “Mr. W.L. Daggett, from F.W. Dawson, Jan 1883”. The author inscribed this book to William L. Daggett (1824-1889), a printer working for the Charleston’s News and Courier with Dawson. Presumably Mr. Daggett was responsible for printing this book, making this a presentation copy.

This very rare book is a remarkable account of an Englishman traveling to the American South to join the Southern Confederacy. His book includes 18 wartime letters to his friends and family in England.

Note: A few pages (pp 9-16) inside are loose from spine (there is also no loss to text or tear), hence we have adequately reduced the price.

Overall this book is in great condition and would be a beautiful addition to the library of someone passionate about the American Confederacy.
