Family interests in the Middle East together with his mother's Armenian ancestry led him to undertake a number of extensive journeys to the country at the end of the nineteenth century, which form the basis of this work. Covering both Russian and Turkish Armenia, Lynch's detailed observations of Armenia, together with the statistical and political information he includes, ensure that these two volumes remain the definitive account in English up to the massacres of 1915. Richly illustrated and with a new introduction by Simon Payaslian, who holds the Chair in Modern Armenian History and Literature, Boston University, this handsome set will be welcomed by all seeking a readable yet informative account that offers insights that remain relevant to this day.

Author Info

H. F. B. Lynch (1862-1913) was the only son of Mesopotamian explorer, Thomas Kerr Lynch, and his mother, Rosa Moso, was the daughter of a wealthy Armenian merchant in Shiraz. He was educated at Eton, the University of Heidelberg, and Trinity College, Cambridge. Although called to the bar he joined the family businesses of Lynch Brothers and the Euphrates and Tigris Steam Navigation Company, which traded from Baghdad and ran shipping lines within Mesopotamia, ultimately becoming Chairman. He became an MP in 1906 and took a strong interest in Middle East affairs. He was a fierce opponent of the policies of the Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey, and was a founding member of the Persian Committee. He died from pneumonia in 1913.
