    (CIVIL WAR COLOR PLATE SONGS). Six Military and Patriotic Illustrated Songs. Elaborately Colored. In a novel form. Series No. 1. [Wrapper title]. New York: Charles Magnus, [1864-65?]. 1st ed. 12mo. 6 hinged leaves, with wrappers on recto & verso of two illustrated songs. Orig. green printed wrappers. Spine chipped, small piece lacking from lower inner margin. $1,500.00


       Evidently a sample booklet; the rear cover is an extensive, fully priced catalog of the various sheets, booklets, views, prints, atlases, maps, games, Rewards, Envelopes, etc. published by Charles Magnus during the Civil War years.

       Included among the 6 Broadside Song Sheets is "The Union Marseillaise," "A Yankee Man-of-War," "The Army of Liberty," "The Flag of Our Union," "Volunteer's Song," and "Rally Around the Flag Boys. Interestingly, we have sold another item with the exact same title, including "Series No. 1" which contained six entirely different songs.

       Very rare, with vibrant colors.
