London: George Prior, 1980. Red boards. pp 240. Ink owner name, else fine in fine jacket. First published in 1843. This is a facsimile reprint, with new introduction, of the London: Arthur Barker, 1953, edition. " "His observations on the social, political, and religious state and prospects of Russia, made during a journey in 1839, led him to dire forebodings. He found that Russia's goal was conquest of the world and that she looked upon Europe as a prey which our dissensions will sooner or later deliver up to her." Felt to be a timely publication in the years of the Cold War.
