About the Author:

Sonia P. Anderson is at Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts.

Review:


"The evidence of this deepley researched book is that Rycaut truly deserved his excellent reputation as an official and author."--American Historical Review


"Anderson with the archival craftsmanship characteristic of an assistant keeper of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts, portrays the factors and consuls against a Levantine backdrop....Anderson has mined and polished these [personal reflections], especially the illustrative vignette, with great care."--Albion


"Presents a wealth of new and useful information....A refreshing change from the current glut of books in which heavy-handed analysis obtrudes....Anderson's book is a thoroughly researched and subtly argued work bursting with facts that support not only her principal arguments and conclusions, but supply grist for the mill of researchers with different interpretive bents."--Turkish Studies Association Bulletin


"Anderson's valuable study casts new light upon many significant topics beyond the recognized significance of Paul Rycaut. The book offers a fascinating examination of complex business organizations and a most dynamic period in British mercantile history."--The Eighteenth Century: A Current Bibliography

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1996. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author and diplomat Sir Paul Rycaut (1629-1700) was the leading authority of his day on the Ottoman Empire. This biographical study draws on a wide range of source material to reconstruct for the first time his varied literary and official career. It also provides a lively account of the English community at Smyrna during the eleven years of his consulship there. Rycaut s seventeen years in Turkey were followed by a brief spell as chief secretary in Ireland under James II, and eleven years as British resident at the Hanse Towns for William and Mary. The main focus of the book, however, is on his consulship at Smyrna, the most important centre of English trade in the eastern Mediterranean. Sonia Anderson explores the social backgrounds and varying fortunes of the resident merchants, factory officials, and visiting sea-captains, and examines the economic reasons for the success of this outpost of Restoration enterprise.
