New York (1958 - 63 - 74): Random House. First Edition. Hard Cover with Dust Jacket. Fine/About Fine. THREE VOLUMES. Complete Set. First printings, all in first issue dust jackets. SIGNED BY SHELBY FOOTE IN VOLUME I without personalization. A handsome set in 3 volumes; volume I, Ft. Sumter to Perryville, with date of "11/58" on rear flap of dust jacket, which is price-clipped - volume II, Fredricksburg to Meridian, with date "11/63" on front flap of dust jacket - volume III, Red River to Appomattox, with date of "1174" on rear flap of dust jacket. A lovely set, internally clean and bright, with no markings of any kind. Dust jackets are very good to fine, with prices on front flaps, but for volume I, which is price-clipped and has some fading at spine and a couple of minor scuffs. Shelby Foote (1916-2005) rarely signed his books. Most signed copies are signed on a page tipped-in by the publisher - Copies signed on the FEP of the book itself, as is the present copy, are quite scarce, perhaps rare, on the market. This set of 3 volumes was issued over a 16 year period, and was well-received and much respected by Civil War buffs. Interest in this work zoomed to the stratosphere, when in 1990, Ken Burns' eleven hour documentary was shown on PBS, of "The Civil War." Sets of this work, in very good to fine dust jackets are, likewise, scarce on the current market.
