Washington: GPO, 1870. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Six volumes, original green cloth. OWNERSHIP COPY OF DR. JOHN H. BARTHOLF, US ARMY WHO SERVED FOR THE UNION IN THE 18th INFANTRY, NY. with his signature in four of the volumes. According to https://www.18thnyi.com/, after being mustered out with the NY 18th Infantry in 1863, "Dr. Bartholf could not return to a quiet life ...he was back in uniform before the war ended. Serving in the same capacity in the medical field for the United States Volunteers, Dr. Bartholf returned on January 5, 1865, and by October he was made a brevet captain and honorably discharged. Dr. Bartholf was really attached to the military and eventually joined the postwar army as assistant surgeon on May 14, 1867. Two years later he was promoted to the rank of captain. While stationed at the Vancouver Barracks [present-day Fort Vancouver] in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Bartholf's wife died in 1884. He continued his service and was promoted to full surgeon with the rank of major, in 1886. He eventually married a second wife in 1890, whom was thirty-four years younger, and their marriage produced a son. Nearing the age limit in the military, Dr. Bartholf retired on his sixty-fourth birthday on March 13, 1894. Ten years later, the Medical Corps honored him with a promotion to the rank of lieutenant colonel. He died on January 31, 1918." (Bartholf men continued in military service. His son His son, John C. P. Bartholf, served thirty-one years with the Signal Corps and U. S. Army, and was one of the first pilots in the country, and reached the rank of brigadier general during World War II. His grandson John C. Bartholf graduated from West Point in 1946, and retired as a highly decorated brigadier general from the U. S. Air Force, with numerous honors for his service in Vietnam.) The volumes, very good over all, show signs of use, perhaps by Dr. Bartholf himself. They show moderate wear at edges and corners; one voume shows shallow cloth loss head of spine, another has a dime sized abrasion at the top of spine. Hinges might be partly revealed here and there, but all bindings remain sound. One volume has a light stain across the upper corner of the leaves for the first signature or so. SEVERAL VOLUMES BEAR DR. BARTHOLF's SIGNATURE: all three parts of Surgical on the title pages and Third Part of the Medical on the ffe. Second Part Medical is noted second issue on title page. Second and Third Parts Medical noted first issue on title pages. Thousands of pages of clinical text, diagrams, illustrations, full page chromolithographs and tipped-in photographs. A monumental record that informed medicine and surgical procedures for decades to come. One of the most ambitious publishing projects at the time, too. CIVIL WAR MILITARY HISTORY. Very Good.
