George S. Patton Signed Book From His Library

18 Dec

Signed book from Patton’s personal library: Indian Fights and Fighters by Cyrus Townsend Brady. Later printing. Garden City: Doubleday, 1923. Rebound hardcover, 5.25 x 7.5, 423 pages. Signed on the front cover in black ink, “G. S. Patton,” and on the spine, “Patton.” Patton also writes the title and author on the spine and front cover, “Indian Fights & Fighters, Brady.” Autographic condition: very good to fine, with the signature on the cover a few shades light. Book condition: G+/None. No other military leader wrote so frequently in his letters or diary what he was reading, and no leader’s library was so well documented since Napoleon’s. Patton’s library, which was almost entirely inherited by his son, Major General George Patton III, was given to West Point, with just a small portion of books, including this one, inherited by other descendants or friends.

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.
