Antiques Books from Victorian Home
Hoping this post finds everyone in good health and happiness! I have two old books that I am trying to find the value of. I have researched them to no avail and have had a couple of dealers tell me they really were not sure what to tell me. The first one is titled " The Heroic Life of Ulysses S. Grant". It was published by DeWolfe, Fiske & Co. of Boston in 1902. It is illustrated in black and white with colored pages. The bottom left hand side of the cover says " "Heroic Series". The book has all of it's pages still securely intact. There is some wear around the very edges of the cover.
The second book I can only find reference to on the internet about a history professor that wrote a paper on it. Unfortunately the gentleman has passed so contacting him is not possible. The title of this book is "Camels for Military Purposes". The cover is a pine green with an etched pattern on the front with no writing. The spine of the book reads "Senate Document". The introduction page reads " Report of The Secretary of War, Communicating, In Compliance With The Resolution of the Senate of February 2, 1857. Information Respecting The Purchase of Camels for the Purposes of Military Transportation." The bottom of the page reads "Washington: A. O. P. Nicholson, Printer 1857". It appears to be reports from Generals and such. It has illustrations as well. Can anyone help me with this? I would be very grateful. Have a great day!
