La Cause Perdue, Histoire de la Guerre des Confederes; D-apres des Rapports Officels et des Documents Authentiques.

New Orleans: Publiee par la Renaissance Louisianaise, 1867. 420pp, 8 plates, 1 (of 3) maps. Recent cloth binding. Foxed and browned throughout, some sections very much so. Plates dampstained. Text complete and legible. This translation of Pollard's The Lost Cause was done for the French speaking residents of Louisiana, and the poor quality paper is probably a result of the shortage of resources immediately after the war. Published in English in 1866, Nevins notes that Pollard was the first to narrate the history of the Civil War from the south's point of view. A flawed copy, but scarce. Howes P455. Item #17564

Price: $200.00
