The education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No American historian of the nineteenth century has so enchanted, irritated, and impressed his contemporaries and successors as Henry Brooks Adams. He was and is his country's greatest historian, and its most elusive. His achievement was various: he helped to fashion and define the school of "scientific" history, so that his History of the United States of America During the Administrations of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison (1884-1891) is a work of stamina and grace that may, with some indulgence, be mentioned in the same breath with Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. - Amazon

"Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet (nobleman serving as a soldier) in the French Army, is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents.

This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful and intellectual Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness would prevent him the "dream of being loved by even an ugly woman."--Wikipedia
