The Minter Company, Harrisburg, PA. 1912, xv, 280p., plus unpaginated appendices (Committee's Report; Lists of Missing and Rescued). Photos and facsimiles on semi-coated stock, these grouped at the start, plus others scattered in the text. A catchpenny or subscription-style production not meant to last, but this is a reasonably good copy, hardbound in 9x6.5 inch blue cloth boards gilt with photo (3.5x5.3 inches) laid down on cover. Spine titling has largely eroded, cover titling slighly flaked, all extremities showing a little card and fraying. Front hinge lightly cracked, several signatures aligned imperfectly (we think haste at the bindery, not loosened thread), two ownership legends on ffep one of which datelined July 1912 - otherwise free of any markings. A good-only copy.
