The Pictorial Field Book Of The Civil War In The United States Of America Three Volumes Bound Together, Lossing, Benson J.
13 Lossing, Benson J. The Pictorial Field Book Of The Civil War In The United States Of America Three Volumes Bound Together
Hartford, CT Thomas Belknap, Publisher 1869 Hardcover Very Good+

The text pages are clean and bright. The endpapers have some spots of ground -in finger dirt. The front inner hinge is cracked. "Benson John Lossing (February 12, 1813 June 3, 1891) was a prolific and popular American historian, known best for his illustrated books on the American Revolution and American Civil War and features in Harper's Magazine. He was a charter trustee of Vassar College...Lossing's significance as a historian derives from his diligence in seeking out primary records, his interviews with participants of events and intimates of his biographical subjects, and his care to weigh and contrast details of his various sources. Although such efforts are today a standard among historians, in Lossing's time they were not. Historiography was not yet a discipline. Washington Irving, with whom he corresponded, wrote, "I have been gratified at finding how scrupulously attentive you have been to accuracy to facts, which is so essential in writings of an historical nature." This made him an essential secondary source for contemporary and succeeding historians and enough of an institution for Theodore Roosevelt in his Naval War of 1812 to adduce simply "Lossing" in stating a fact, much in the same manner as historians use "Gibbon" or "Toynbee."
