The Monitor and the Navy Under Steam
Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1900. First. Hard Bound. Front board fantastic. Spine slightly faded. Tight and square. VG/VG+. / None. Item #629
Great Civil War info, easily 3/4ths of the book deals with Civil War ships/navy. Details on the Monitor/Merrimac engagement, also the Brown Water navy that fought on the rivers and streams of the South. There is some dialog on the CSS Alabama and Admiral Semmes. Nevins I-218: "much technical data...personal data on engineering officers..." Scarce.
