1866 · New York
To say that Cluseret (1823-1900) was an interesting man is something of an understatement: He was a French soldier and a politician, served as a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War, helped organize the Fenian Brotherhood and participated in its insurrection, and later was a delegate for war during the Paris Commune.
Here he takes on the Europeans intervening in Mexico ( (1861-67) and those standing by and just watching. Clearly a private publication but one that achieved considerable readership for there were at least three editions in 1866! Original printed wrappers. Occasional stains. Lower inside corners of all leaves crumpled. Some dog-earing. (Inventory #: 36252)
