Notes

First edition, presentation copy, warmly inscribed by the author in the first three volumes to his cousin, the orientalist Alice Getty, author of The Gods of Northern Buddhism (1914). In the first, "Miss Alice E. Getty with the cousinly greetings of the Author, Xmas 1905", in the second, "Miss Alice Getty with the warm regards of the Author, May 1904", and in the third, charmingly, "To my much-travelled Cousin Alicia, these memoirs of a Man, who however Great, never went to Pekin, the author, Xmas 1907". Dodge's monumental history in his "Great Captains" series is distinctly uncommon signed or inscribed.
