History of The Campaign For The Conquest - Jones, Charles Henry - 1882. 
Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, 1882. VG, slight wear to upper front outer hinge leather. A superb copy otherwise. Full leather, 5 raised bands, all edges gilt, velveteen endpapers with elaborate gilt stamping inside both covers. xiv, 234 pp., extra-illustrated with approximately 60 plates including 8 from Murray's History and several 18th Century engravings of Washington. On spine: Conquest of Canada. Noteworthy for so many reasons, this copy also has the etched bookplate of Z.T. Hollingsworth (Zachary Taylor, 1848-1925) as well as the leather bookplate of Valentine Hollingsworth (his son). The Hollingsworth Family is steeped in the historical narratives of the Brandywine Valley. ZT was an avid book collector and autograph collector. This particular volume is luxuriously bound by F.P. Hathaway, Binder, of Boston with his mark.
