#15235 - 1863 Casey's Infantry Tactics Book with pencil notes  
This is an original leather-bound 1863 Infantry Tactics book by Brig-Gen. Silas Casey published in New York City. These were common reading for Union officers and Non-Comms. The covers are embossed by Eagle Seals. The spine has date, title and another eagle in faded gold. There is a bookplate for Chester A. Jayne who I suppose was a later civilian owner since I cannot find him on CW troop database. But this was certainly owned first by a soldier who wrote some pencil marching order notes in rear. Book has music to common military songs in read, a fold out page, some trooper engravings and LOTs of reading about tactics. Some foxing to a few pages. Covers worn but binding solid. About 5 1/4" by 3 1/2".
Condition: Very Good  |  Price: $114.00 

#11932 - 1861 Scotts Infantry Tactics Mayor and Inscription  
This is a well-worn original 1861 Scott's Infantry Tactics Volume III. These were heavily used by officers during the Civil War. This has the title page and several fold out pages of troop formations. The cover is separated, so this needs to be rebound someday. On back cover are tags indicating "Mayor Samuel G. King" and his solicitor. I believe this book came from Massachusetts. A cool inscription indicates that if you steal the book, the gallows will be your end! Price based upon condition.
