The Historian, Academician and Chronicler, Baron Pyotr Afanasyovich Bibliotekhsky, Librarian to the Grand Prince, humbly presents his historical researches into the foundations of our Great Realm to the Committee of the Novi Byelgorod Academy, suitably annotated throughout, as a gift to the Committee's Chairman, our Most Noble Ruler, Grand Prince Dmitry IV Dmitrovich.
Let all who read do so with a circumspect eye, as some of these sources are less than completely accurate. Thankfully, Pyotr Afanasyovich has provided helpful clarifications and footnotes to assist the reader in sifting the grain of truth from the chaff of falsehood.
The summary of the Baron's most diligent studies are presented in the attached dossier for the approval of the Committee and Chairman.
In the words of our nation's motto, "Let our friends take heart and our enemies tremble!"
