Beschreibung des Verlags
The life of M. Stambuloff (Stefan Nikolov Stambolov) is so intimately connected with the national life of Bulgaria, that a biography of that Statesman becomes almost a history of the birth and growth of the Principality. A full and complete history of Bulgaria is, however, beyond the scope of the present sketch, and the author has endeavored, as far as possible, to give special prominence to those periods in which Mr. Stambolov played a leading part, filling in the remaining details sufficiently to enable the reader to follow the story intelligently.
About the Author
Ardern George Hulme-Beaman (1857-1929) was a British adventurer, author, diplomat and war correspondent. After defending prisoners before the Alexandria court-martial he joined the staff of the London Evening Standard in 1883, and became its correspondent in Egypt, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia, Turkey, and Austria-Hungary. He was the London Evening Standard's war correspondent during the British Nile Expedition, between 1884 and 1885, and during the Cretan Insurrection, between 1897 and 1898.
Hulme-Beaman also wrote Twenty Years in the Near East, 1898, Pons Asinorum or Bridge for Beginners: A Short Treatise on the New Game of Bridge, 1899, English and Continental Bridge, 1902, Travels without Baedeker, 1913, and a translation of Leo Tolstoy's Master and Man, 1895.
