First and only edition, extremely rare, of this account of the Austro-Turkish War of 1788-1791, and of the concurrent Russo-Turkish war of 1787-92. It includes the full texts of the Treaty of Sistova of 4 August 1791 and of a separate convention attached to it, in both French and German. While the gains for Austria were meagre, the end of the Russo-Turkish war, sanctioned by the Treaty of Jassy of 9 January 1792, effectively left Russia in control of the Black Sea.
