Henrich Brenner, Finnish-born philosopher and diplomat who accompanied the Swedish envoy Ludvig Fabricius to Persia in 1697. The aim of the embassy was to establish trade relations between Persia and Sweden. Three years later on Brenner's return journey he was imprisoned in Russia.Due to the war between Charles XII and Peter I the Czar suspected that Brenner's mission might have secret political purposes and therefore had Brenner arrested at Moscow. He was imprisoned for twenty-one years until the conclusion of the Peace of Nystad. During his journey and the long imprisonment in Russia he had opportunity to study the languages and cultures of Armenia, Dagestan, Georgia and Circassia. Brenner's extensive commentary of the "Epitome com. Moysis Armeni" indicates his broad knowledge of classical and oriental literature. At end a letter to Erik Benzelius, Archbishop of Upsala at the time. Scarce. Zenker, BO ii, 2289. Svenskt Biografiskt Lexicon, 6.

First edition.Ferrieres-Sauveboeuf was a French diplomat who for many years travelled throughout the Levant, Persia, Arabia and Caucasia including several visits to Constantinople. He was fluent in Turkish and Persian. His account is rich with information of the countries, people, characters, religion, etc. and mainly based on his own observations. Further he records much details about the Turkish-Russian war of 1788-9. He was engaged to undertake secret missions in the area under the ministry of Vergennes who earlier had been French ambassador to the Porte (from 1755). It might explain his loyalty to Vergennes and the vitriolic attacks against Comte de Choiseul Gouffier who was the ambassador in Constantinople at the time (1784-91). Atabey 428 (second ed.).
