Excerpt from The Island of Roses and Her Eleven Sisters: Or the Dodecanese From the Earliest Time Down to the Present Day

But in view of the immense amount of details and data accumulated for the writing of this book it was necessary to condense it, otherwise it would have developed into a voluminous work.

In order to give my English readers the history of the Twelve Islands and the colour of their civilisation in a short but accurate form, I have thought it necessary to be briefer in some parts of the book than in others. For instance, leading events, such as the sieges of Rhodes, which have much bearing on its history and reveal the character of the people, have been made more prominent in these pages than have other less important matters. But those students who wish to go further into the sub ject will find fuller details and ampler information in the version of this book which I am now preparing in Greek.
