Mr. Lincoln’s Admirals. By Clarence Edward Macartney. First Edition, First Printing. Funk & Wagnalls. New York, 1956.

$25.00

Clarence E. Macartney authored over forty books in his lifetime. The majority of them were texts on Christian doctrine and history as Macartney was a prominent Presbyterian minister. Yet he was also a historian with a special interest in the American Civil War, and so several of his works concern themselves with that subject. Mr. Lincoln’s Admirals is probably his most acclaimed. It describes the contributions and characters of the Union Navy’s leadership, including David Farragut, Samuel Francis Du Pont, and Andrew Foote. Some chapters also contain photographs of the ships, notes on their routes, and portraits of the Admirals. It is an intriguing text on some of the less often told stories of the Union Navy.

This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original blue cloth, very good with only rubbing and bumping to edges. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, very good with only chipping, creases, and close tears.

A very good first edition of Mr. Lincoln’s Admirals.
