How Geographers, Pharmacists, Novelists, Plant Hunters, War Correspondents, Engineers, Medical Men & Tourists Discovered & Experienced Nineteenth-Century Bulgaria
What Western and Central Europeans did, saw and experienced in nineteenth-century Bulgaria is the subject of this book. Most of them came from France, Great Britain, the German states and the Austrian Empire, others from Belgium, Denmark or Switzerland. For reasons still to be given, special emphasis is placed on German-speaking visitors to Bulgaria and their writings. Their story has never been told in any comprehensive way in a Western language, and it is quite a story. Much is made accessible here for the first time in English.
