by RODENBOUGH, Theophilus Francis
Frontis. & five chromolithographic plates (three colored), several text illus., & two folding maps. 561 pp., 4 pp. of publisher's ads. Thick 8vo, orig. publisher's red cloth (joints expertly repaired), upper cover stamped in gilt with regimental insignia, spine gilt. New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1875. First edition of this scarce work on one of the most well-traveled military units in the pre-Civil War period. Rodenbough (1838-1912), served with the unit as they traversed the country. It contains one of the earliest military descriptions of the use of chloroform on p. 167-8 in which the unit's colonel impresses the Native-Americans with the ability to supposedly revive a deceased dog, which he had in fact anesthetized. Fine copy in the original publisher's binding.
