  • E. G. Ravenstein
  • Journal of the Statistical Society of London, Vol. 40, No. 3 (Sep., 1877), pp. 433-467
  • In 1877, one of the most eminent geographers and expert in population migrations, E. G. Ravenstein published in the “Journal of the Statistical Society of London” an account with statistics after years of researches in reference to the populations of Russia and European Turkey. Its quite interesting that  Ravenstein’s analytical testimonies refer to Bulgarians and their western neighbours Serbs, Croats, Bosnians and Rascians but didnt found a single “Macedonian”, whike he verifies that Thessalonica and other Macedonian cities had a predominant Greek population. On the other hand its clear, major cities of modern FYROM such as Uskub, Monastir had a predominant Bulgarian population. The Lie of ‘pseudoMacedonism’ started a little later.
