    Philip H. Sheridan: Personal Memoirs of P. H. Sheridan Signed by His Brother. First Edition. (New York: Charles L. Webster & Company, 1888). This two-volume set was dedicated and presented to Sheridan's longtime confidential clerk, Daniel O. Drennan. On the full title page of Volume Two, Michael V. Sheridan inscribes: "In accordance with an intention expressed by General Sheridan while he was writing his memoirs these volumes are presented to Daniel O. Drennan ['(his confidential clerk)' in another hand]. M. V. Sheridan, A. A. Genl Dec. 19th, 1888."

    These are the memoirs of this great Civil War Union General, finished just days before his death. Hardbound in green cloth, 8vo (6.5" x 9.5"), total 986 pages, includes fold-out maps and numerous illustrations, a bright gilt illustration of Sheridan on horse on both front covers, also gilt lettering on the spines. These particular volumes belonged to his long time chief clerk Daniel O. Drennan, who served Sheridan with much vigor from 1865 to 1888.
