DescriptionGeneral George Armstrong Custer. My Life on the Plains. Or, Personal Experiences With Indians. New York: Sheldon and Company, 1874.
First edition. Octavo. 256 pages. Illustrated with eight plates including a Custer portrait under tissue guard used as frontispiece.
Original decorated brown cloth with buffalo head vignette and titles stamped in gilt on the front board and additional decoration stamped in blind and in black. Titles in gilt on the spine. Toning to spine and wear at the ends. Corners slightly frayed. General light shelf wear with boards and decoration remaining bright. Lower corners of pages 11 through 19 bent, else internally sound. Former owner's name in ink and small bookseller label on the front pastedown. Former owner's label on the front free endpaper. Very good.
An important work and the core of any Custer collection, this self-promoting memoir recounts the author's early campaigns against the Cheyenne and culminates with his dealings with the Sioux (before they dealt with him).
