Two items consisting of:
1) Autograph of C. E. Gordon of Khartoum from document.
7 x 3.5 inches Folds and small taped repair as seen in closeup photo.
2) 1885 biography of General Gordon; 5x7 inches, Victorian gift edition. Published after his death at Kartoum.
The picture of Gordon's death at Kartoum is for reference only and not included with purchase.
Much information is available online re Gordon. Like his American counterpart George Custer, he continues to be a polarizing figure of considerable historic interest.
Gordon autographs are rare due to long periods engaged in international military adventures. This autograph probably dates from a brief period he served in England and Wales as a Royal Engineer.
