Notes

First edition. Dmitri Nikolaevich Logofet (1865-1922) was "undoubtedly the most influential critic of the situation in Bukhara in the early twentieth century" (Becker, Russia's Protectorates in Central Asia, p.212). A colonel in the Amu-Darya Border Guard, Logofet lived in the khanate for more than ten years and published four books and at least two long series of articles on Bukhara, "which contained much valuable information along with a good deal of misinformation, all presented with the author's strong bias in favour of drastic Russian intervention in Bukhara's internal affairs". His first book, published under the sensational title of Strana bezpraviia (Land of Lawlessness) "had great impact on the Russian reading public as well as in government circles". The present work is a somewhat less contentious travelogue. Uncommon, just 8 locations on OCLC.
