Cambridge University Press for the Hakluyt Society, London, 1970. Second Series Volume 134. By the early sixteenth century the loosely knit kingdom of Georgia had disintegrated from the strong monarchy of the middle ages to a number of small states and principalities. This internal disunity made the Georgians easy victims of the power politics of the neighbouring Ottoman and Safavid empires, and by the end of the century the southward drive of the Russians intensified the struggle for military and diplomatic control over the whole of the Caucasian isthmus. As a result of the struggle between the Georgian, the Ottoman and the Safavid empires seventeen embassies were exchanged between the Russian tsars and the Georgian kings ruling in Kakeheti during the years 1564 - 1605. The translators have selected the documents relating to the embassies of 1589-90 and 1604-5. Nice condition. 640pp. 220 x 140 mm
