Personal memoirs of U.S. Grant : in two volumes by Ulysses S Grant( Book )

in English and held by 1,291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Grant went on to become president of the United States, Personal Memoirs ends with his Civil War service. The memoirs were written in 1884-85 when Grant was deeply in debt and dying of throat cancer. Fighting pain with cocaine, composing in long-hand because he could no longer dictate, the general completed his great work less than a week before his death. A huge commercial as well as critical success, Personal Memoirs redeemed his name and provided for his survivors. An index has been added to this Bison Books edition

This early volume of€Little Lord Fauntleroy, €the first children's novel by Frances€Hodgson€Burnett, features illustrations by Reginald Birch.€Originally published as a serial in St. Nicholas Magazine from November 1885 to October 1886, the novel tells the story of a young boy named Cedric Errol who lives in poverty with his mother, a woman known only as "Dearest." Because his father and uncles died suddenly, Cedric is surprisingly bestowed the title of Lord Fauntleroy, heir to the Earldom. The current Earl (Cedric's grandfather) wishes for Cedric to leave his mother and live with him in the vast estate. Cedric leaves his home and learns the ways of English aristocracy, teaching the Earl about kindness and compassion in turn.
