Notes

First edition, fairly uncommon, just 7 locations on Copac. Reprints Brayley's despatches to the Daily Graphic in response to the suppression of Armenian nationalism by the Sultan, the Hamidian Massacres ; "In this record I have laboured rather to explain the causes which have brought about the present state of affairs in Asia Minor, than to excite the passions of the reader by a recital of the repulsive details of cruelty which attended the massacres" (Preface). Brayley was educated in Moscow, and became St. Petersburg correspondent for the Daily Graphic in 1889, established Reuter's special section in Berlin, was sent as their Special Correspondent to the Russian Famine 1891-2, later represented the Express at the Second Anglo-Boer War, a prominent member of the Anglo-Russian Literary Society, he acted as chairman of the Russian, Polish, and Estonian sections of the London Chamber of Commerce. Excellent copy of this important source. Brayley concludes by advocating British intervention for the liberation of Armenia.
