Reprint of title originally published by Cambridge University Press in 1908. (Besterman 1550). Three centuries of Ottoman rule, characterized by the almost complete spiritual and cultural isolation of Cyprus from Europe, let the country fall into a state of economic, social and cultural decline. In 1878, Cyprus was handed over to Great Britain, although this was still a time of harsh exploitation of the Cypriots. This volume is a collection of papers printed between 1892 and 1895 as a supplement to the Owl, a newspaper published in Nicosia, the capital. Cobham collected and translated these papers in an effort to provide materials for a history of Cyprus. The end of the book is a bibliography with approximately 1000 titles on the subject. Index.
