History / History -European & World . / Catherine, Empress of All the Russia's by Vincent Cronin Vincent Cronin Collins 1978 first edition laminated hardback: 349 pages including index: b/w photographic illustrations. Synopsis: A  revealing ,  searching, in-depth  biography of a woman who was one of the most interesting and influential figures of the second half of the eighteenth century . Catherine’s  private and  extensive public life is thoughtfully and impartially  dissected.  We learn that although  when Catherine took power of  the Russian  Empire it  was a loose knit grouping of unruly provinces; at the end of her reign it was possible to travel without molestation   through a series of uniformly administered provinces where  earlier  there  had been widespread unrest with perhaps 200,000 people in semi rebellion among Cossacks,  Church serfs and and factory  serfs  . At the end of Catherine’s  reign there had been no disturbances among them  for twenty years  the population had been increased from 19 million to 29:  every big town had its quota of  hospitals and orphanages; although  at the beginning  of Catherine’s  bribery had been rife, at the end  many officials  were elected . Formerly Russia had been considered barbarous ground , best avoided by travellers, by the end of Catherine's reign it had become  part of the English Grand  Tour, with  banks and an adequate money supply in line with leading commercial countries.  More metals were being mined than it ever before,  more timber grown and felled , more goods manufactured . During 1794 -8  Russia’s annual exports were running at 57 billion roubles,  four times the amount  when Catherine came  to the throne.  Russia  had become a more permeable society than Prussia or  Austria :  and Catherine and had become a sovereign   famous in three continents , but as    the  biography is at pains to point out , Catherine was  without airs - at the end of her reign saying “ All  I can do for Russia is never more than a drop in the sea . “ Condition: ex library with stickers and stamps but clean and good overall. used books
