Richmond, VA: B.F. Johnson, 1900. First Edition. Octavo. Item #022677

412pp., frontispiece and other portrait illustrations. A much consulted memoir by a Virginia cavalry man; especially good for Baylor's discerning personal observations (Nevins B-55) Baylor discusses the disgusting conditions of the prisons. It was so bad he had decided he would escape. Captured and exchanged once, wounded several times, he rose to command Company B with distinction. Later in the war he raided Union communication lines with the 43rd Virginia under Mosby. A handsome copy bound in blue-green cloth pictorially stamped in white depicting a soldier on a horse with his sword raised, spine lettering gilt, dark coated endpapers, front hinge just starting, some spotting to biding. No names or bookplates.
