Notes

First edition in French, originally published in Berlin the previous year. Stumm, a lieutenant in the Westphalian Hussars, was attached to the Headquarters of Kaufman's Russian expedition to Khiva in 1873, notionally sent to bring an end to the brigandage and slaving that interfered the peaceful pursuit of trade in the region, but in truth part of Russia's campaign to take control of the Central Asian khanates.
