History of the Greek Revolution.Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1861 Stock Code: 84577
NotesFirst edition. "Inspired by philhellenism as a law student, George Finlay (1799-1875) took part in the Greek war of independence alongside Lord Byron. While later researching the history and archaeology of the country, Finlay also sought improvements to the administration and economic development of the independent Greek state. Published in 1861, this two-volume account of the Greek revolution, including its military conflicts and political consequences, traces events up to the creation of a constitutional monarchy" (blurb to Cambridge University Press edition, 2014).
