Chicago: The Werner Company, 1895. 2 volumes. Illustrated. Thick quarto; gilt-pictorial cloth; handsome copies. Item #371
First edition. "The long public career of the author-subject (began 1854) and especially his identification with the financial history of the U.S. during and since the Civil War, make this book a history of American politics for the period... The book is unequal, the interest continuous." -LARNED 2412.
