Russell, W[illiam] H[oward]:

MR. RUSSELL ON BULL RUN; WITH A NOTE; FROM THE REBELLION RECORD.

G. P. Putnam, New York: 1861 [1]-6, [11]-14, 7-12 pp. Dbd, original printed self-wrappers. Inscription, light institutional stamps, else clean text with light wear. Text in double columns. Good+. Russell's reports to the London Times are analyzed ungenerously here, demonstrating that he lied, exaggerated [particluarly where his columns placed him near the center of danger], and generally portrayed the North unfavorably. Nevins calls him "an egotistical English reporter." I Nevins 155. There were evidently two editions. Sabin 74401 [(2), 14pp]. Nicholson 720 [14pp]. III Dornbusch 1501 [12pp].
