S18: Jed – A story of Battle and Prison, of Peril and Escape

This week’s Biblio-Mat submission is a rare fiction novel, and an old one at that!

Title: Jed, A Story of Battle and Prison, of Peril and Escape
Submitted by: Mitch A.

Published in 1889, this story presumably takes place during the American Civil War as it has a subtitle of “A Boy’s Adventures in the Army of ’61-‘65”. Written by Warren Lee Goss, it’s a 404-pager that looks like it’s punctuated by black and white illustrations. 

Can’t tell if it was meant to be an adventure book for boys or if it was targeted towards adults but the sheer length of it and the author’s other books makes me think the latter.
