NEW YORK AND THE WAR WITH SPAIN. HISTORY OF THE EMPIRE STATE REGIMENTS:  A nice book covering everything you would want to know about the New York National Guard and their participation in the Spanish-American War or 1898. Little known fact that Company I of the 71st NY were with Roosevelt's Rough Riders when they charged up Kettle Hill in Cuba.  Book covers all of the NYNG units.  Book was an official presentation from "Augustus P. Allen, Member of Assembly", in 1907. 
The book was actually published in 1903. It is 6" X 10".  The first part of the book covers the Spanish American War and consists of 429 pages.  The second part of this book (an additional 192 pages) is Col. Silas Burt's  "My Memories of Military History of the State of New York During the War for the Union 1861-65". The book has a few photo 'plates' of important people at that time.  There is a 4 page foldout of the 1st Regiment on parade in Honolulu. The NYNG participated in most of the theaters of the Spanish American War.  Only 'damage' I see is inside of the front and back covers where there is some separation at the spine (Please see photos).  The embossed gold lettering on the book's spine is faded out and hard to read. This book is an original first printing and  not a reprint.  It is hard back with red cloth covers.  It was published without a dust cover.
