Adding further nostalgia, the first page includes a hand written message “Put it back where you found it It’s property of Neil Goldsmith Co A 27th Bn Camp Croft, S.C.” (which was dismantled after the war) The paper cover of this book is in rough shape (shown in pictures). However, the contents are remarkably clean and is a complete set. There is some damage to the back few pages (shown in pictures) but none of the print has been compromised (picture shows the page with the most damage).

Considering the rarity of this collection, aesthetics are variable. Here’s your chance to own a rare piece of American history! Asking $750″
