Pocket sized manual by Augustus Kautz, 6th U.S. Cavalry & B.G. U.S. Volunteers.
CUSTOMS OF SERVICE For NON-COMMISSIONED OFFICERS AND SOLDIERS….Practiced In The Army Of The United States…By August V. Kautz, Philadelphia, Lippincott & Co., 1864. Hard cloth with embossed eagle motifs both sides, gold letter spine title, 303 pages. Illustrations of U.S. Naval officer rank straps. A small pocket sized manual that covers just about everything.
On the inner back cover is written, ” no. 47 / Property of Edward Showarce.” Looks to be a period signature, but I can’t find him listed.
The book contains a small printed catalog of many other printed military titles published by Lippincott. 19 pages. This is a great reference by itself.
Shows use but in very good condition,
