DUKE, Basil W. Morgan's Cavalry. New York and Washington: The Neale Publishing Company, 1906. 1st of this ed. Illus. 441pp. Original cloth, t.e.g. Spine somewhat darkened, spine rubbed, corners bumped, covers a bit soiled, else a very good copy. Howes D-548. Krick p. 42. 'This standard work is a blend of biographical material on Morgan and narrative history of his command in the field -- made more lively by addition of Duke's own eyewitness perspective. The author's evident vested interest in the events being described is compounded by his admiration for Morgan, who, Duke says, 'is beyond all question entitled to the credit of having discovered uses for cavalry, or rather mounted infantry, to which that arm was never applied before.His success was not more marked than his genius'. Author's signature affixed.
