ARMENIA TRAVELS AND STUDIES: VOLUMES ONE and TWO (Set)
By H.F.B. Lynch
Lynch's classic two-volume work on Armenia is considered to be the best travel book written in the English Language covering Armenia. The author, in an account of the two separate journeys he undertook in Armenia between 1893 and 1898, presents a panoramic view of the whole area, with its monasteries and churches, towns and villages, mountains and rivers. He combines an excellence in style with scholarship and the result is a happy mixture of well-written and at times poetic exposition with a good deal of scholarship in his treatment of the inscriptions and the political and statistical surveys.
This well-illustrated work, with 197 photographs and sketches by the author himself as well as numerous maps and plans is the most extensive of its kind covering both Russian and Turkish Armenia.
