Blue-black cloth, gilt letters on spines; 1031 total pp., gilt top edges; 2 BW plates as frontispieces; 10 maps incl. overall. A two-volume set detailing this portion of the life of the Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834), "from the time when he ame here in 1777 until he returned to France after the surrender of Earl Cornwallis, in 1781. I have used for this purpose the letters preserved among his private papers which were published in his Memoirs and Correspondence by his family after his death, and I have carefully examined a large number of manuscripts in this country, among the official documents of the Department of State, as well as in private collections and those of institutions to which access has been granted me. I have taken especial care to present in detail the military operations of the Virginia Campaign, during which La Fayette held an independent command, with as close attention to his won statements as possible, frequently in his own words, in order that I might give a faithful account of the part he played." (preface) The set includes 10 maps and at least one reproduction facsimile of a handwritten letter. A very nice pair of volumes.
