AS AN ADDED BONUS.....the Book comes with a Label belonging to it's original owner, Major William Alexander Obenchain, a Civil War personality who served on General Robert E. Lee's Staff, and after the War became President of Ogden College in Bowling Green, KY (now the University of Western Kentucky).

Both Volumes are also signed by Major Obenchain and Volume 1 also has the name 'Smith' on the title page...presumably a prior owner to the Major.
