Description

A rare work, complete with a presentation inscription by the author, Vladimir Filipov (1838 – 1903), a Lieutenant General who fought in the Russo-Turkish war, 1877–78.

Filipov’s overview of the topography, borders, fortifications and road systems of these Caucasian regions is a first-hand source; in the 1860s, prior to the publication of this account, the author served as a Captain at the Caucasian General Headquarters.

This copy contains 14 additional topographical and geological plans, as well as plans of fortresses not usually included in either of the accounts.

Rare: Worldcat locates no copies of “Obzor Tiflisskoy gubernii” in Europe and no copies of “Erivanskaya guberniya” at all; there are also no copies of “Erivanskaya guberniya” in the Russian State Library.

Description
