Volney had published his travels the previous year and was enjoying the fruit of success. His Considérations on the Russo-Turkish war of 1787 was decidedly pro-Russian and looked forward to the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire, as illustrated by the map ; he was presented with a gold medal by Catherine II on its publication. His work was answered by Peyssonnel" [Leonora Navari]
