Books on Union Generals and More
Lot # 90 - Books on Union Generals and More
Lot of 3. Fuller, J.F.C. Colonel. The Generalship of Ulysses S. Grant. New York: Dodd, Mead and Company, 1929. 8vo, blue publisher's cloth, gilt front (spine missing), 452pp.

John Frederick Charles Fuller (1878-1966) was a British Army officer and military historian. He was a student of military history and tactics, but, interestingly, also wrote on Cabalism, Yoga, and Magick. He wrote this study of Grant's generalship, and also a study of Grant & Lee, examining their personality and generalship. He was also a student of Napoleon, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, among other military notables, and, again, the "other side," he wrote a book on Aleister Crowley.

Hart, B.H. Liddell. Sherman. Soldier, Realist, American. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1929. 8vo, blue publisher's cloth, gilt spine, 456pp. Ex lib.

Guedalla, Philip. Argentine Tango. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1933. 8vo, red cloth, gilt spine, 254pp. This would seem to be a different genre of travel description. According to a contemporary review of the book: "Mr. Guedalla's wit is one of the most cultivated in Europe. Does it matter very much if he excites our curiosity without satisfying it? Others have tried to satisfy  without exciting. Does it matter if he says practically nothing about art, architecture, archaeology, public buildings, private hotels, revolutions, and bad women? Others have said a great deal.... You cannot criticize this book for what it doesn't say, when what it does say is so extremely entertaining." (George Dangerfield, in The Bookman, March 1933, p. 281-2)
