    Robert E. Lee: Scarce Post-War Histories. Nice pair of Robert E. Lee books, both bound in green cloth with gilt titles. One is "Four Years with General Lee" by Walter H. Taylor, New York, D. Appleton & Company, 199 pp. Slightly cracked hinges, minor wear to spine extremities, library markings at bottom of spine, generally a fine, clean copy. An added bonus is a tipped-in war-date document of the author, reading: "Approved By order of General Lee W. H. Taylor A.A.G. 3rd May 1864". The second book is "Personal Reminiscences of Gen. Robert E. Lee" by Rev. J. William Jones, New York, D. Appleton & Company, 509 pp. with advertisements. A very good copy that was owned by a Dallas lady who wrote a summary of her father's military record in Terry's Rangers on the inside cover and rear endpaper.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
