Philadelphia: Self (L. C. Baker), 1867. L.C. Baker (1826-1868) took over the Union Intelligence Service from Alan Pinkerton; his experience as a Vigilante in San Francisco evidently qualified him, and he directed the capture of Lincoln's assassins. His death shortly after the publication of this pro vita sua has always been suspicious, fueling many conspiracy theories of an alternative history. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of the First Edition, self-published. Large thick octavo; brown cloth, decoratively stamped, with titles, rules, and a Union shield in gilt on the spine. Clean text; 704 pages. Endpapers tanned, scattered spotting throughout, but generally bright and supple. Shows a bit of wear; bumped at the tips; there is a split along the front edge of the spine, but it is holding. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
