Notes

First edition. Ghambashidze was a Georgian mining engineer who had been secretary of the Anglo-Russian Chamber of Commerce in London, and who, using his influential British connections, was instrumental in obtaining the recognition of an Independent Georgia at the Paris Peace Conference. He was a delegate of the short-lived Georgian Government (1918-21) and clearly wrote the present work to stimulate investment from British mining concerns; "the first summary in English of the mineral resources of Georgia and Caucasia, which countries are bound to play a very important part in developing the unlimited resources of the Middle East. It will be found invaluable as a reference book by engineers, financiers, and the general investing public, and also by Government Departments" (from the jacket blurb).
