I was near a Books-a-Million store this past weekend and I always like checking the bargain table for Civil War books. I was not disappointed. I picked up a copy of Wayne Youngblood’s Mathew B. Brady: America’s First Great Photographer in hardcover for about $20 bucks. That is a great price.
I’ve seen all these pictures before but not in this size. The book is 16.7 x 11.7 x 1.2 inches. These pictures are huge and some of them are full size, taking up two entire pages. It is 256 pages of sheer delight.
I’m gonna buy another copy and frame some of the pictures. Go find your closest Books-a-Million store and get your own copy.
