When Gordon set out from Cairo for Khartoum on January 26, 1884, he became, though he would never know it, the most celebrated personage in the world. For during the next twelve months, astounded alike at the seeming insanity of a government which had dispatched a solitary general on a mission which to all appearances would need a couple of armies and a highly trained civil service to carry through, and at the irrational self confidence of the man who had so readily accepted such unparalleled responsibilities, foreign spectators eagerly devoured first the romantic accounts of Gordon's spectacular career, which were headline news in every civilized country, and then the scanty and conjectural reports which filtered from the Sudan, as the slow tragedy of Khartoum drew towards its close. - p. 9

4 editions published between 1884 and 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of letters was published in 1884, when General Gordon (1833-85) was engaged in the controversial defence of Khartoum that claimed his life the following year. The reputation of 'Chinese' Gordon, a complex figure, unpopular with the British government and military but adored by the people and press, was fed by works such as this. Covering his time in the Crimea as a young lieutenant, and later in the drawing up of the new frontiers between the Russian and Ottoman empires, these letters were published by his later biographer, Demetrius C. Boulger (1853-1928) as evidence of Gordon's strength of character and value as a military leader. One reviewer noted in them an 'indomitable cheerfulness of disposition, patient endurance, trustful fatalism, simple courage and faith, ... [and] single-hearted devotion to duty', words which reflected the popular view of Gordon as a symbol of British national pride and imperial honour
Eminent Victorians : Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Dr. Arnold, General Gordon by Lytton Strachey( Book )

5 editions published between 1918 and 1928 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eminent Victorians is a groundbreaking work of biography that raised the genre to the level of high art. It replaced reverence with skepticism and Strachey's wit, iconoclasm, and narrative skill liberated the biographical enterprise. His portraits of Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Arnold, and General Gordon changed perceptions of the Victorians for a generation
