ALLEN, W.E.D.
Russian Embassies To the Georgian Kings 1589-1601. Edited with Introduction, Additional Notes, Commentaries and Bibliography by.....Texts Translated by Anthony Mango.
Cambridge: Published by the Hakluyt Society....... 1970. In two volumes.
Tall 8vo., cloth, xxxii, 368; (x), (369)-640pp. Fine in d/w.
"By the early sixteenth century the loosely knit kingdom of Georgia had disintegrated from the strong monarchy of the middle ages to a number of small states and principalities. This internal disunity made the Georgians easy victims of the power politics of the neighbouring Ottoman and Safavid empries, and by the end of the century the southward drive of the Russians intensified the struggle for military and diplomatic control over the whole of the Caucasian isthmus. As a result of this struggle embassies were exchanged between the Russian tsars and Georgian kings ruling in Kakheti during the years 1564-1605.....Although writers seem to be frequently pre-occupied with questions of protocol, their observations give a clear picture of both current Russian administrative and diplomatic practice and of the life and customs of the peoples of the Caucasus and Georgia...."
