¶Wolff 6161 in blue morocco cloth; Wolff notes Sandwith was 'the well-known army surgeon at the siege of Kars'. Humphry Sandwith first went to Constantinople in 1849. He served under General Beatson as staff surgeon on the Danube and afterwards with General Williams in the Turkish army in Armenia as head of medical staff, where he distinguished himself. This work written some years later under the guise of a novel was 'a telling indictment of Turkish misrule' (DNB).
