British Envoys to Germany and British Envoys to the Kaiserreich
The two editorial series consist of official despatches written for the Foreign Office by British envoys to the German States in the 19th century, covering the period from the Vienna Congress in 1815 to the dissolution of the German Confederation (Deutscher Bund) in 1866 and from the foundation of the German Kaiserreich in 1871 to 1897. All despatches have been transcribed and annotated for the first time. The selection presents the main attitudes to the political, economic, military, cultural, and social situation in the German States described and assessed by British diplomats.
The volumes published in the Fifth Camden Series for the Royal Historical Society in association with the German Historical Institute London. For more information on the British Envoys series click here.
