VANCE Tom , Napoleon in America: Essays in Biography anc Popular Culture


<i> © Tom Vance </i>

© Tom Vance

Description: Tom Vance has created a most remarkable book. It is a collection of seven papers which he gave at various times, and a catalogue of Napoleonic art works in American institutions (chapter 8). Of particular interest are his bibliographical studies. He gives us details (biographical and historical) concerning Napoleonic histories published in the USA but little read these days, notably Headley, Abbot, Ropes, Sloane, Tarbell, but also Dodge and especially Emil Ludwig (who gets the whole of chapter 5 to himself). For this alone Vance should be congratulated. His catalogue of the art works is similarly useful, and the discussion of publishers (chapter 4) is interesting. We are delighted here at Napoleon.org to recommend this book as our “Book of Month”, March 2013.
