Grant was terminally ill when he wrote these volumes and needed to raise money to support his family after his death and to settle debts. Mark Twain encouraged Grant throughout the writing and was at his bedside when he died. Twain then sponsored and supervised the publication of the memoirs, initially offered in various deluxe editions that differed in price. Grant's work has remained in print for over 100 years but here is a fine opportunity to acquire these 19th Century first editions. Estimated Value $600 - UP
