Cincinnati: Morgan & Overend, Printers, 1848. 12mo, original blind-stamped red cloth, gilt decorations and lettering, a.e.g. Engraved frontis portrait by C. A. Jewett from a daguerreotype by E.C. Hawkins, Cincinnati. ΒΆ A fine presentation copy of the first book from Kentucky soldier and poet George Washington Cutter (1801-1865), inscribed on the front blank, ?Washington June 28th 1851 / Presented / To Maj. Gen'l John E. Wool / By G. W. Cutter / Late Capt. / 2nd Ky. Infantry.? John Ellis Wool (1784-1869) was second in command at the Battle of Buena Vista, and was "largely responsible for the victory of Buena Vista" (DAB). Cutter served under Wool's command and writes about him in the title poem: ?And veteran Wool, the heady fight / As nobly did sustain, / As if the glow of Queenstown height / Had fired his soul again.? See the DAB for both Wool and Cutter. Cloth a little worn; some slight foxing; fine copy.
