Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a rare collectible, paperback, in very good condition. Published by David Blocher, Gettysbury Pa. There is no publication date but it is noted on first page that the price was 50 cents or 60 cents by mail. Given the publisher and some of the photos inside with their notes, this was probably published in the '30's or earlier. It is an oblong paperback that is in very good condition, esp. given age. It is a collectible rare item of Gettysburg memorabilia. It is very clean and unmarked inside. It is a stapled binding that is in remarkably good condition. The cover front and back are also very good. Wonderful piece of history for any collector.

This paperback is a larger size, oblong in style and tells the story of Gettysburg in pictures. The illustrations were made expressly for the book, taken by special artists and represent the most interesting views of this historical shrine. It was designed as a souvenir to Gettysburg and as such, as described in prologue: "we have made this such a record of facts and such a collection of beautiful accurate and attractive views that it will be recognized by all as the most appropriate and interesting souvenir of America's Greatest Battlefield".

Each photograph is detailed with accompanying text so as to give detail and historical content to each. On the back cover is the Lincoln Address as delivered at Gettysburg Pa., November 19, 1863.
