Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1944. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 6 X 8 3/4 Inches. 558 PP. Very Good / Very Good. Item #787
Important biography of Nathan Beford Forrest. Signed and inscribed, "To Parson Willard Teague, in appreciation of his help on this job - Robert Selph Henry - October 31, 1944." Teague was a noted editor at both the Nashville Banner and the Memphis Commerical Appeal. He undoubtedly served in an editorial capacity on this book. Very early inscription in the year of publication. Signed on the half title-page. Original price of $4.00 intact on front flap. DJ has a bit of primitive tape repair along the edges and spine. Original maroon cloth a bit rubbed at hinges. A very appealing copy of a book notriously difficult to find in high-grade condition.
