Hon. Edward D. Baker U. S. Senator from Oregon, one of America's Heroes, formerly in Congress from Illinois [&c &c]. / Colonel E. D. Baker's Defense in the Battle of Ball's Bluff, Fought October 21st 1861, in Virginia, and Slight Biographical Sketches of Colonel Baker and Generals Wistar and Stone.

Lancaster PA: Published for the Author, Inquirer Printing Company, 1888. Hardcover. 248p., has a folded map and several tissue-guarded portraits from period photography. Hardbound in 7.5x5 inch brown cloth boards spine-titled, covers panelled in blind. A wretched but complete copy. All edges of the casing were long ago taped (to reinforce? possibly to "decorate") in now-yellowed and detaching scotch-type clear adhesive. Endsheets and blanks are heavily taped with same results. Front hinge is held by cords and binder's crash only, rear hinge weak, textblock is slack showing threads at the gutters. Amazingly, we see no trace of anything missing, and the little map in unmolested. A very poor copy.
