This chapter introduces Henrietta Liston, her travels to and within the Ottoman Empire, and her journals and letters documenting these experiences. After briefly comparing Liston’s voice to that of her predecessor, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, it sets out the editorial rationale behind the present volume, and explains its relationship to the accompanying open-access online resources hosted on the National Library of Scotland’s website. The chapter closes with a short summary of the rest of the book’s contents.

Keywords:   Henrietta Liston, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Ottoman Empire, journals, letters, archive, editorial rationale, online resources
