SIGNED hardcover first edition - Includes a history of the reasons behind the memorial and of the statue itself, addresses and speeches at the rather elaborate ceremony, the names of those marching in the various honor guards, some inspirational poems, as well as the official correspondence of the committee. Frontispiece of the statue and additional plates of some of the presenters at the ceremony - Edward Everett et al - each with tissue guard. This copy is one of an unknown number of presentation copies with a special page stating that it was "Presented to Gen L Coombs." It is further INSCRIBED on the front endpaper "To..... Esq, from his friend, Leslie Coombs. " Coombs, perhaps best known at the time of this ceremony as a "strong union man" was born near Boonesboro, Clark County, Kentucky, 28 November, 1793 and died in Lexington, Kentucky, 21 August, 1881; Leslie, who was the twelfth child of a pioneer farmer who relocated from Virginia to Kentucky, entered the army at the age of nineteen and fought first in the Indian wars on the frontier and then in the War of 1812, where he was commissioned captain of spies in Dudley's regiment of Kentucky volunteers,. Later he was wounded at Fort Miami. After the war he studied law and was admitted to the bar, but he continued to be involved in both public and military service. In 1836 he raised - at his own expense - troops to aid Texas in her struggle for independence, and was commissioned colonel. Coombs also served honorably in politics - both as state auditor, and in the legislature. Most significantly, he was earnestly devoted to the Union from the time when the question of secession was first advanced and he gave many speeches in support of his friend Clay as a candidate for president. General Coombs's last public office was shortly after the date of the inauguration of this statue: in 1860 he was elected, as the Union candidate, clerk of the Kentucky court of appeals,. In opposition to the state guard - which was in reality a training ground for recruits for the Confederate army, he organized and armed, in conjunction with General Lovell H. Rousseau, a body of loyal soldiers. He was also one of the pioneers of railroad-building in the West. Several pages have creases in the upper corner - including the pages that included a letter from Governor Morehead of Kentucky. In light of future events, it is notable that many of these letters, which Coombs marked, expressed the necessity of keeping the Union - the country for which Warren died - intact. 224 pp
