Recollections of a Rebel Surgeon (and other Scetches) or In the Doctor's Sappy Days.

Austin, TX: Van Boeckmann, Schutze & Co. 1899. First Edition/Rebound. Hardcover. Appears to be mid-20th century rebinding, conserving spine and front of original cloth. "Composed in the man of recorded conversations long after the war with an army doctor, the text is rambling, flippant and strong suspect" (renowned book dealer F. O'Brien). Inscription reads, "Chas. Jackson - Presented to me by the Author - Austin, TX - Apr. 10, 1900". Noted flaws notwithstanding, a handsome copy of an increasingly scarce volume. Very Good [Textblock Fine]. No DJ. Item #5563 Rebound, ownership inscription on ffep, two light pencil sketches at rear blanks, else tight, bright and unmarred. Red cloth boards, original red cloth onlays, gilt lettering, black ink decorative elements. 8vo. 264pp plus 4pp ads. Eratta sheet tipped in at Table of Contents.
