The Turkish Empire: Its Growth and Decay
by Lord Eversley
Publisher: T. Fisher Unwin 1918
Number of pages: 395
This volume tells, in a compact and popular form, the story of the growth and decay of the Turkish Empire. It does not aim at a full history of the long period dealt with. The author explains the process by which the Turkish Empire was aggregated by its first ten great Sultans, and has since been, in great part, dismembered under their twenty-five degenerate successors, and to assign causes for these two great historic movements.

Easy to read book on the subject of the Andaman islands and their strange aboriginal inhabitants. The author naively and cheerfully lists his facts and graphic descriptions, adds a few personal observations and then goes on to the next topic.
