Richmond: West and Johnston, 1861. Likely the first Confederate edition for this popular manual. HB. The book is bound in later blue cloth boards. There is gold spine lettering. The book was lightly trimmed making for a neat, tight manual. Some non-obtrusive foxing as is normal. Item #232
A very popular infantry manual used by both sides during the War. The Confederate version, as this is, is more uncommon. A basic primer for organization, duties, responsibilities and the all important infantry training. A lengthy manual of over 550 pages.
