An account of circumnavigation personally owned by Patton

Signed book from Patton’s personal library: Seven Seas on a Shoestring by Dwight Long. Third edition. NY: Harper & Brothers, 1938. Hardcover, 6.5 x 8.75, 310 pages. Signed on the first free end page in fountain pen, “G. S. Patton, Jr., Mar 9, 1939.” Patton’s name is also written on the front cover. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG-/None. Accompanied by a custom-made quarter leather clamshell case. 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. The author, Dwight Long, was the youngest person at the time to circumnavigate the globe, and in this book describes in detail his voyage aboard the Idle Hour. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
