Peter the Great or Peter I (1672-1725), czar of Russia (1682-1725), whose military campaigns and modernization efforts transformed Russia into an empire to be reckoned with in European affairs. Peter was born in Moscow on June 9, 1672, the son of Czar Alexis I Mikhailovich. In early childhood he was taught by private tutors; later, with the aid of palace masters and various foreigners living in Moscow, he taught himself technical and mechanical arts, especially in relation to military and naval science.
The original hard-back book was written by one of the most renown and prolific writer-historians of his time, Jacob Abbott of Brunswick, Maine. It was one of a set of 32 volumes authored by Jacob and John Abbott, brothers, in the mid- to late-1800s. The set was re-published in the early 1900s, and not again until 2000, when GoldenWest Marketing undertook the project of re-printing 8 of these rare and genealogically valuable books.
The 368 pages of the original hard-bound book have been photocopied and printed two to a page and placed in a soft cover with a plastic-comb binding, affordable book.
