This volume is a sequel to the work I published, several years ago,
under the title, _Byzantine Constantinople: the Walls of the City, and
adjoining Historical Sites_. In that work the city was viewed, mainly,
as the citadel of the Roman Empire in the East, and the bulwark of
civilization for more than a thousand years. But the city of Constantine
was not only a mighty fortress.

MANY and many miles and many days' journey toward the rising sun, over seas and mountains and
deserts,--farther to the east than Rome, or Constantinople, or even Jerusalem and old Damascus,--stand the
ruins of a once mighty city, scattered over a mountain-walled oasis of the great Syrian desert, thirteen hundred
feet above the sea, and just across the northern border of Arabia. Look for it in your geographies. It is known

For over three months No. 3 Squadron had been occupied daily in ranging the heavy guns which night after
night crept into their allotted positions in front of Albert. On July 1st 1916 the Somme offensive opened with
gas and smoke and a bombardment of unprecedented severity. To the pilots and observers in an artillery
squadron the beginning of this battle brought a certain relief, for we were rather tired of flying up and down,
being shot at continually by fairly accurate and remarkably well hidden anti-aircraft batteries, while we
registered endless guns on uninteresting points.
IN 1837 I was a resident in Galata, one of the faubourgs of Constantinople, sufficiently near the scenes of death caused by the ravages of the plague to be thoroughly acquainted with them, and yet to be separated from the Turkish part of the population of that immense city. It is not material to the present sketch to dwell upon the subject of my previous life, or the causes which had induced me to visit the capital of the East at such a period of mortality; and I will therefore only add, that circumstances of a peculiarly painful nature...
MY grandfather, George Keppel, sixth Earl of Albemarle, was born in 1799. I remember him quite well. He
was always a delightful raconteur, and many is the yarn we heard from him at Quidenham, when in the winter
evenings he gathered us round him before the old library fire. He would tell us how as a child he had been
frightened into obedience by the cry of " Boney is coming!" and he recalled quite clearly the alarm produced
in England by the avowed intention of Napoleon to invade our country. As a boy he often stayed in London
with his maternal grandmother, the Dowager...
The world is now too busy to read voluminous history. The interminable details of battles, and the petty
intrigues of courtiers and mistresses, have lost their interest. In this volume it has been our object to trace
perspicuously the path which Russia has trod from earliest infancy to the present hour. The career of this
empire has been so wild and wonderful that the historian can have no occasion to call in the aid of fancy for
the embellishment of his narrative.
The author has not deemed it necessary to incumber his pages with notes to substantiate his statements.

An abridged copy of this voluminous work, done by some learned Syrians (and hence called the Shamiyeh, or Syrian Antar, to distinguish it from the original, which was known as the Hijaziyeh, or Arabian Antar), having been obtained by Mr Terrick Hamilton, during his residence at Constantinople, in his capacity of Oriental Secretary to the British Embassy there, he was induced by its comparative brevity to undertake the task of translating it into English.
After the fall of the Roman empire in the West, an interval of fifty years, till the memorable reign of Justinian,
is faintly marked by the obscure names and imperfect annals of Zeno, Anastasius, and Justin, who
successively ascended to the throne of Constantinople. During the same period, Italy revived and flourished
under the government of a Gothic king, who might have deserved a statue among the best and bravest of the
Whatever had been his fears and toils in the passage of the first crusade, they were amply recompensed by the
subsequent benefits which he derived from the exploits of the Franks. His dexterity and vigilance secured
their first conquest of Nice; and from this threatening station the Turks were compelled to evacuate the
neighborhood of Constantinople. While the crusaders, with blind valor, advanced into the midland countries
of Asia, the crafty Greek improved the favorable occasion when the emirs of the sea-coast were recalled to the
standard of the sultan.
Immediately on receiving official notification of the rupture of diplomatic relations between Austria and
Servia, the Turkish Grand Vizier hastened to inform the Diplomatic Corps in Constantinople that Turkey
would remain neutral in the conflict.
