Published in 1978, this book remains the principal study of the history of Civil War relic collecting. Thoroughly researched, lavishly designed and packaged with hundreds of photos, this study presents the fascinating history of collecting from the first day of the war up to the present age of the metal detector. Authors Steve Sylvia and Mike O'Donnell spent several years compiling the material for this book. Their effort took them across America interviewing hundreds of collectors and photographing thousands of artifacts. Nearly every National Park Service battlefield opened their archives for the pair to study and document the establishment of the battlefield parks and the building of their individual park collections. 8 1/2" x 11" format, glossy paper, extensively illustrated, color portfolio. The 1st Edition included several hundred specially bound in brown leatherette, gold edged, serial numbered, and signed copies. These sold for $50 in 1978. This copy is number 301 which we believe is the highest number issued. This copy was retained by Moss Publications as a publisher's copy. Never sold.
