SECRETARY OF WAR'S REPORT TO CONGRESS 1852-53 - US ARMY CHIEF OF ORDNANCE REPORT:  A scarce original printing of The Report of the Secretary of War for the years 1852-53, printed by Robert Armstrong, in Washington, consisting of 686 pages and numerous data tables. 

This comprehensive report contains the detailed reports from the various Military Departments such as Texas and Oregon, as well as departmental reports from the Quartermaster General, Paymaster General, Commissary General, Surgeon General, Colonel of Engineers, Colonel of Topographical Engineers, and the Colonel of Ordnance.

An ex libris edition, this volume shows the expected wear of 170 years, but it still retains its original cover boards with the original gilt title printing on the spine.  The binding is still quite strong with no weakness or breaking.  All of the pages are still intact with no loss, and a number of the pages have some minor foxing due to age. 

This is a valuable reference from the mid 1800's and reflects the condition and staffing of the army just prior to the Civil War.  (0816)  $175
