Pierre-Simon Pallas : Travels through the Southern Provinces of the Russian Empire in 1793 and 1794

'I have read both Scott's visits, and Mrs Hulse has just lent me the life of John Sobieski, K. of poland. I have only just begun it, but it promises facility of style, & I think I shall like it. I tried Pallas's Travels in Russia lately: but there was too much about progressive improvements in agriculture, & manufactuaries amongst the grown-up Muscovite babes, & I got tired, as I easily do of all that relates to half civilised nations. Give me a whole Savage or no Savage at all.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Sarah Harriet Burney      Print: Book
