Following the Swedish defeat in the war and the signing of the Treaty of Fredrikshamn on September 17, 1809, Finland became an autonomous Grand Duchy as a part of the Russian Empire.*** Previous to the present account of Finland, the standard work on Finnish History was Rühs »Finnland und seiner Bewohner« which was published in 1809.It was written in the years leading up to the separation from Sweden. As such, »Finnland und seiner Bewohner« was based on Finland in terms of her relation to Sweden. Peter von Gerschau, Baron of the Principality of Reuß and Imperial Privvy Councillor to Czar Nicholas I, establishes a Russian perspective on the history of Finland with his »Versuch über die Geschichte des Grossfürstenthums Finland«. Also by Gerschau: »Aus dem Leben des Freiherrn Heinrich Ludwig von Nicolay, weiland Kaiserl. Russischen Geheimraths und des St. Annen-Ordens erster Classe Ritters« . Bookseller Inventory # 11032147
