Preface begins: In looking over some family paipers I lately had occasion to refer to some journals kept by my father during a journey in Greece and Turkey in 1839, and apart from all personal considerations I was attracted to them by the unusual political interest of the period. In Greece, as every one knows, the War of Independence had long since come to an end, the Regency had closed its troubled and inglorious career, and the Greek kingdom had been fairly launched amidst the aspirations of political enthusiasts and with the more substantial support of foreign loans. In Turkey, still reeling from the effects of the long struggle and the irreparable losses of Navarino, crushed in power abroad and revolutionised by new ideas. etc. Size: Facsimile Bound Reprint Edition.
