Six Military and Patriotic Illustrated Songs. New York: Charles Magnus, [1863 or later]. 8vo (204 x 134 mm). 6 stiff paper sheets with hand-colored wood engravings and lithographs. Tiny chips to extremities, archival tape repair to most folds, very good overall.

An interesting collection of song sheets including: "Our Grandfathers' Days"; "The Captain With His Whiskers," which illustrates a Zouave regiment; "Want-A Substitute," which deals with the practice of rich men paying substitutes to enlist in their place; "Dixie's Land," depicting a minstrel extravaganza; "Young America and Ould Ireland"; and "Kingdom Coming," which depicts two ironclads with an African American couple looking on. The back cover provides an extensive catalogue of Charles Magnus's wares.
