    Thumbs up Service Afloat, any Civil War buffs?

    "Service Afloat, or The Remarkable Career Of The Confederate Cruisers Sumter And Alabama"
    Written by, Admiral Raphael Semmes
    Published by P. J. Kennedy and Sons somewhere around the 1870-1880s, although there's no copyright date in the book, that's my best guesstimate

    I've had this book sitting on my bookshelf since I inherited it several years ago. I've got little interest in the Civil War, so I thought I'd pass it along to someone who might have an interest.
    It's in good condition and similar to the book described on this site, Internet Archive: Details: Service afloat : or, The remarkable career of the Confederate cruisers Sumter and Alabama, during ...although the publisher is different.
    From the title page, the book is "Illustrated with Steel Engraved Portraits, and Eight Engravings, from Original Designs, Printed in Chromo-Tints."

    I'm asking $125. for it, and that'll include standard post office shipping.
    Here's a couple of pictures of the book.
    Send me a PM if you're interested.
