A Modern Masterpiece of Civil War Literature and Art.

Signed by both Artist and Author

Across his extraordinary career, E.L. Doctorow has established himself as one of the leading voices of American literature. His acclaimed novels often mix fictional characters and stories with historic events and actual figures to bring America’s past vividly to life.

In The March, Doctorow tells the compelling story of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman's infamous 1864 march across the ruined Confederacy. In this critically acclaimed masterpiece, Doctorow puts human faces to the destruction and brutality of this difficult period of our history.

Adding to this special edition, are dramatic Civil War paintings by Mort Künstler. ”Of all the artists working in Civil War field,” observed Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James McPherson, none captures the human element, the aura of leadership, the sense of being there and sharing in the drama, quite like Mort Künstler. He has that enviable talent of being able to re-create history on canvas and to translate events into art.”

From famous figures like Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant, to the thousands of slaves, soldiers, and people on the home-front, Doctorow and Künstler portray our nation’s darkest hour with authority and breathtaking beauty.

Sumptuously Bound in Leather and Accented in 24KT
Your Collector Edition of The March is truly a showpiece in any home library. Every volume is bound in premium quality, specially tanned leather. The traditional “hubbed” spine is stamped with genuine, 22kt. The page ends are gilded for beauty and to seal out humidity and dust. Heavy-duty binder’s board provides strength, toughness, and durability.

In addition, Doctorow’s words and Künstler’s images will be sure to last for you and your family for years to come. Every page is printed on acid-neutral, archival-quality paper that will not crumble with age. These pages are sewn – not glued like ordinary books – into the binding. Moiré fabric endsheets provide beauty and strength. A satin-ribbon page-marker lets you return to your favorite passages again and again.
