The Battle of Mobile Bay

Boston: A. Williams & Co., 1878. First. Hard Bound. VG. Attractive royal blue, some soiling along the edges. Spine readable but faded. Gold ship on front board bright. / None. Item #261

A rare account by a participant. Little written on the naval aspects of this navy-army joint effort. About the last of the major engagements in the West. Very detailed account. "Damn the torpedoes" affair.

Nevins I-230: "Straight forward account written mostly from official records and papers." Not in Howes or Dornbusch.

Both of the two required maps (charts) are present in a rear pocket.
