The binding is solid throughout the book; it has no looseness or lean and both hinges are fine. The interior is clean and the pages are in excellent condition.
The book has a prior-owner signature dated 1906, in ink, on the front end page as shown. I have not evaluated this signature to determine if it is to a Civil War soldier. There is no other writing in the book. The book has no smudging, foxing, stamps, pasteboard, or other markings. It is not an ex-library book.
It has no unique smells. The book has a frontispiece illustration of General Lee in uniform and is illustrated throughout. All illustrations have tissue guards and all are fine and clean. The book contains 461 pages. Overall this is a very nice condition, antique book.
