Condition is fine, with the slightest wear, some light age toning of pages.  About the best condition one could hope for in a book of this era.

Has a name on the front flyleaf, “W.N. King ?”  A typed note named this to a William N. King, 1st New York Mounted Rifles.  Served in the Civil War for August 1862- to Sept. 1864 and then designation of regiment changed to 4th Provisional Cavalry on Sept. 6, 1865.  This King was discharged in November of that year at Port Royal, Va.  I can’t confirm the identification, but it did come from an old collection.
