By Arndt M. Stickles. Published by North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1940. Reverse frontispiece presentation “Mrs. Salome Tanner” from friend. 446 pp., ills. Gray glazed cloth, 9.25 x 6.25”. Light wear at the extremities, else VG plus. Simon Bolivar was a noted Kentucky Confederate, best remembered today for having lent U.S. Grant money upon his departure in disgrace from the US Army in the mid-1850s, and for being forced to accept dubious honor accepting Grant’s demand for “unconditional surrender” at Fort Donelson in 1862. But, Bolivar had an honorable military career all the same, nicely detailed in this well written biography. Solid collectors copy.
