Herbert Fisher : Studies in Napoleonic statesmanship: Germany

?I have received your book and in spite of your permission to abstain, have read it from first to last? My ignorance of the subject was pretty exhaustive but I knew just enough to have some kind of pegs to which new knowledge might adhere.?

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Leslie Stephen      Print: Book


Herbert Fisher : The Medieval Empire

?I have waited to thank you for your book till I had read it & write now ? before having quite finished ? because I can talk best with my pen & would rather anticipate tomorrow. I am, as you know, quite unable to criticize the substance. I am greatly ignorant of history & of that part of history beyond nearly all others. I can, however, see that you have got through an amount of work wh. amazes me? I thought well of you; but you have quite surpassed my expectations.?

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Leslie Stephen      Print: Book
