Journey to the Crimea in 1786

Romm G.

Bibliographic description of books: Gilbert Romm Journey to the Crimea in 1786 – Leningrad: Leningrad State University Publishing, 1941 – 79 p.

Translated from the manuscript, introduction and notes by K.I. Ratkevich.

Computer text prepared by N.I.Zharkikh the 2005. Page numbers of the book featured at the end of each page of the original in square brackets. To the text I added some comments (in gray in brackets). Also, I broke the text into small sections (these markings were not in the manuscript and the publication in 1941) and added a map of Ukraine and Crimea.
