Volume I: 1816-1829

This edition consists of official reports sent by British envoys to Germany to the Foreign Office in London. The diversity and number of missions within the German Confederation offers the reader an opportunity for a pluralistic perception of German affairs by several British diplomats. The selection represents their main attitudes to the political, economic, cultural, military, and social situation in the German states. All despatches relevant to this first volume which covers the period 1816-1829 have been transcribed from the original for the first time.
