Summary The author and diplomat Sir Paul Rycaut (1629-1700) was the leading authority of his day on the Ottoman Empire. Drawing on a wide range of source material, this biogrpahical study gives the first reconstruction of his varied literary and official career. It also provides a lively account of the little-known but thriving English community at Smyrna during the eleven years of his consulship there.
