ADELPHUS, Johannes. Die Türckisch Chronica von irem ursprung anefang und regiment/ biss uff dise zeyt/ sampt irem kriegen und streyten mit den christen begangen/ erbärmklich zu lesen. Strassburg, Johann Knobloch, 1516.Folio. Old vellum. With 26 half-page woodcuts (7 repeats). 48 lvs. First published in 1513 - A extensively illustrated Turkish chronicle from its beginnings to 1500, with special emphasis on the crusades. The work records the first Ottoman siege of Rhodos in 1480. The beautiful woodcuts show battles and other scenes from the Middle East, presenting Ottomans, European kings and noblemen, and crusaders bearing the cross on their clothes and banners. Some woodcuts show a perspective and style reminiscent of mediaeval art, while others are good examples of Renaissance work showing modern perspective and rendering each figure with personal character. (Koc I, p 27). Johannes Adelphus (1485-1523) was a phycisian from Strassbourg. He took a keen interest in Turkish affairs, producing also a Historia von Rhodis (Strassbourg 1513). He depicted the Ottomans primarily as a military force marching on horses and attacking cities and islands. (Hajdarpasic 2018)Göllner 80 (seltene Druck); not in Weber, Blackmer or Atabey.

AGRICOLA, George. Oratio de bello adversus Turcam suscipiendo, ad Ferdinandum Ungariae boemiaequ regem & principes Germaniae Basel, Froben, 1538.4to. Modern boards. With 2 woodcut printer’s devices. 18 lvs. First Latin translation of "Oration, Anred und Vermanung Herrn Ferdinandum zu Ungern" (Nuremberg, Peypus, 1531), an pamphlet on the Turkish wars in Hungary which began with the siege of Vienna in 1529. "Agricola gives a long-winded account of the Turks' cruelties and warns that Germany is now threatened by the Turkish forces. Hungary must be given every assistance." No writer has so praised the superiority of the Imperial armaments over the apparently weak Turkish weaponry. He stressed the superior arms of the German mercenaries, while the Turks had but flimsy pikes. Victory over a so poorly equipped enemy is nothing less than certain. His oration was written a few months after the siege of Vienna, which may explain his excessive optimism" (Kertbeny, p. 89 etc.). With preface by Georg Fabricius dedicated to Chemnitz and at the end a letter of Laurentius Bermannus to king Ferdinand, ex valle Joachimi April, 1530. A catholic with a broad humanistic education, George Agricola spent most of his life in Saxony as an educator, physician, scientist, and expert on mining and metallurgy. His outlook was more secular than that of the other pamphleteers. He viewed the Turkish question primarily as a militair and economic problem rather than as a divine visitation. In one respect his views resembled those of the other Catholic writers: he envisaged the eventual extirpation of the Islamic religion at the point of the sword.

With 2 title-pages printed in red and black (without the portrait as always, see Koç p.216). 192; 186 pp. First edition. - 'The true origin of these entertaining but fictitious memoirs will probably never be known, and indeed it is likely that different parts of it were written at different times and by different hands, composed in order to satisfy a market which was always hungry for news of the exotic and cirious; but a London origin might go some way towards explaining the false imprints of the earliest French versions. Claude-Alexandre de Bonneval (1675-1747) was, however, a real person. A French army officer, his temper and insolence led him into various scrapes: sentenced to death in 1704, he fled to Germany and later joined the Australian army, but fell out with Prince Eugene of Savoy; he was then exiled to Venice after another court-martial, and eventually ' turned Turk' and was put in charge of the Turkish artillery, at which point he was known as Kumbaraci Ahmet Pasa' (The Ömer Koç Collection I, p.216). The renegade Count Bonneval rendered valuable services to the sultan in his war with Russia. He advised on Ottoman diplomatic affairs and was highly regarded by the Grand Vizier. He was in Constantinople from 1720. These memoirs appeared just after Bonneval began to lose favour at the Ottoman court. He was exiled to Asia Minor in 1737, but later partly reinstated. He died in 1747 and his tomb is in the garden of the Teke of the whirling devishes at Peradied in Constantinople. - A fine copy.

Bosquier was born at Mons, studied theology at the University of Paris, and was sent to Rome where Cardinal Caesar Baronius became his patron. He was the author of thirty volumes of sermons and several plays, populist with strong moral themes, in which he attacks the Huguenots and the 'mondains'. Bosquier employs the same populist tone against the Turks, though he uses many classical and religious sources to back his arguments. He also includes a powerful plea for unity in the Church in face of the Ottoman threat. A rare work, that provides much insight into the Counter Reformation Church's reaction to the Ottoman invasion of Europe. Not in Apponyi, Blackmer or Atabey [Boeknr.: 32482 ]

BRÈVES, François Savary de & Louis de MAY, a.o. Recueil historique contenant diverses pieces curieuses de ce temps. Cologne, Christophre van Dyck, 1666.12mo Contemporary calf, spine gilt (extremities of spine sl. dam.). (4), 350 pp. This work, published two years after the Austrian defeat of the Ottoman army at Saint Gottard, gathers together ten essays concerning i.a. the war with the Ottomans.François Savary de Brèves was Henri IV’s ambassador to the Porte (1589-1605). He was a remarkably successful envoy: he had experience in Turkey, could speak the language fluently and appears to have enjoyed distinction and raised French prestige considerably in the eyes of the Turks (Koç, Istanbul, p.106)”Discours abrégé des asseurez moyens d’aneantir la Monarchie des Princes Ottomans”(p. 101 - 145) is a project for a crusade against the Ottoman Empire by Francois Savary de Brèves that originally appeared as an appendix to Jacques du Castel’s Relation de voyages de Monsieur de Breves (1628). In 1585, de Brèves accompanied his relative Jacques Savary de Lancosme to Constantinople when he became ambassador to the Porte. Savary de Lancosme refused to recognize Henry IV of France, leading to his imprisonment by the Ottomans and the nomination of Savary de Brèves as imterim ambassador. From 1591 to 1605 he was French ambassador to the Otoman Court. He spoke Turkish and Arabic and was famed for his knowledge of Ottoman culture. He tried to incite the Sultan to wage war against Philip II and to limit the activities of Barbary pirates on the French coasts of Provence, but in vain, leading to tense relations between France and the Porte. “Discours historique et politique sur les causes de la Guerre Hongrie” and “Discourse politique sur le traitté de paix fait entre Léopold et Mahomet dernier Empereur des Turcs” are by Louis de May and were first published in Lyon in 1665.

BURNABY, Frederick Gustavus. On horseback through Asia Minor. London, Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Riverston, 1877.2 volumes. Original pictorial green cloth. With mounted photographic frontispiece and 3 large folding maps. XXII,352; 24; XX,399 pp. First edition - Frederic Gustavus Burnaby (1842 - 1885) was an adventurer and traveller, who had successfully penetrated Russian controlled central Asia in 1875. This is a description of a five month-long journey in Asia Minor from November 1876 till march 1877, which is particular interesting in the view of the Russo - Turkisch war of 1877 - 1878 in which Burnaby commanded a Turkish brigade. He travelled through northern Asia Minor through Ankara, Erzerum, Mt. Araat, and from Batum on the Black Sea to the shores of Lake Van. Burnaby was well known for his very popular account of his journey, A ride to Khiva, 1876 (Blackmer p.52). His ride across Asia Minor in the winter of 1876 - 1877, was occasioned by his determination to see for himself how the Porte treated its subjects. He could be quite critical of the tales of massacres, torture and imprisonments with which the Greeks and Armenians filled his ears. In the course of five month Burnaby travelled over two thousand miles in Turkey. When On horseback through Asia Minor appeared in 1877, it went through seven editions. - A nice set of a classic travel narrative.Blackmer Collection 244; not in the Atabey Collection and Weber.

CANNING, Stratford. The Eastern question. By the late Viscount Stratford de Redcliffe. Being a selection from his writings during the last five years of his life. With a preface by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley. London, John Murray, 1881.Original green cloth gilt. With folding map, coloured in outline (with tear). XXIV,216; 32 pp. First edition, published posthumously. - Stratford Canning (Viscount Stratford de Redcliffe) spent much of his diplomatic carreer in Turkey. His first trip to Constantinople in 1808, when he accompanied the mission of Robert Adair that restored peace between Britain and the Turks. When Adair left Constantinople in 1810, Canning became minister-plenipotentiary, and it was Canning who helped mediate the Treaty of Bucharest between the Ottomans and Russia on 28 May 1812. He attended the Congress of Vienna and in 1824 he was appointed British ambassador to the Porte, a position he was elected several times, and he was resident in Constantinople for most of the period from 1825 to 1858, with several interruptions of different lengths. In 1828 he signed the Poros Protocols, which granted the new Greek state the islands of Crete, Samos, and Euboea., This move was disavowed by the government, and Canning resigned. Canning's next term in Constantinople lasted from 1842 to 1852, and in this period he came to be seen as one of the leading figures in Constantinople, as British influence over the Porte increased and the Turks came to be seen more and more as British clients. He returned home in 1852, but when Aberdeen's coalition government was formed, Stratford de Redcliffe was sent back to Constantinople once again. He came in the midst of a crisis caused by the dispute between Napoleon III and Nicholas I over the protection of the holy places. This crisis ultimately led to the Crimean War (See Atabey p.90).Not in the Blackmer Collection. [Boeknr.: 35192 ]

Jean Coppin (c.1615-c.1690) has writen an account of his journeys long after the fact, together with his attemps to spread his ideas of a new crusade. Coppin had first travelled to Egypt in 1638 where he spent two years. He later travelled to Tunis and Syria. In 1644 he was named consul at Damietta and he spent three years there. He returned to Europe in the hope of persuading the Pope to agree to a new crusade (Blackmer p. 85).The original work appeared in 1656, under the title Bouclier de l' Europe.... In this reprint, the title has been changed: the title of the first edition has become the title of the first chapter, and the title of the second part of the first edition has become the title of this second edition. This change can be explained by the fact that his idea to form a crusade wasn't really relevant anymore 30 years later, so Coppin put the emphasis on his voyages. - (Some staining).

XIV,253 pp. First edition. - In 1842 Curzon joined a conference at Erzerum to deal with the border incursions of the Kurdish tribes into both Turkey and Persia, and to determine the border between the two countries. The commission was formed by Turkish, Russian, Persian and English plenipotentiaries. Curzon, privat secretary to Stradford Canning, British ambassador in Constantinople, was joint British commissioner with Colonel W.F. Williams. The treaty was finally signed in 1847 and a new commission formed in 1848 to survey the border area, much of it wholly unexplored, extending to the east beyond Mesopotamia. The survey was completed in 1852. This is a very important work, and of especial interest for information on the Christian tribes in the area surveyed (Atabey p.159). Robert Curzon, 14th Baron Zouche (1810 - 1873 , was a notable Victorian English traveler, travel writer, and diplomat, active mainly in the Near East.

DE KAY, James Ellsworth. Sketches of Turkey in 1831 and 1832. By an American. New York, J. & J. Harper, 1833.Original boards (rubbed), with printed title-label on spine, in cloth box. With several woodengravings in the text. XII,527 pp. First edition; copy from the Wadsworth Library, New York. - 'In the following pages I have attempted to preserve a record of my own impressions, without reference to the descriptions of many preceding tourists, who seem to have taken a marvellous pleasure in exaggerating the vices and suppressing the good points of the Turkish character' (Introduction). De Kay’s presence in Turkey in 1831 was connected with the first treaty between America and Turkey and as part of an American presence connected with the rebuilding of the Turkish fleet destroyed at Navarino. De Kay was the son-in-law of Henry Eckford, a naval architect, who took over the Shipyard of the Turkish navy in 1832. The ship in which the whole party travelled, commanded by De Kay’s brother, was sold to the Sultan. At one time De Kay was suggested as American Consul in Constantinople. He has produced a very interesting work full of historical and political sketches, and including a special chapter on the first treaty between the Porte and the US. De Kay had a medical degree, but did not practice as a docter; he was close to American literary circles of the period and was a friend of James Fenimore Cooper and Joseph Rodman Drake (Blackmer p 101). Contains also lively descriptions of the neighbourhoods of Istanbul, and its Armenian, Greek and Jewish communities. - (Foxed).Atabey Collection 334; Blackmer Collection 465; Weber 210.

Sous la conduite de .. Duc de Lorraine & l’electeur de Baviere. Nouvelle edition revuë & augmentée.

An English edition was published in London in 1687 (?) An historical description of the glorious conquest of the city of Buda, the captial city of the kingdom of Hungary, by the victorious arms of the thrice illustrious and invinciple Emperor Leopold I. Under the conduct of his Most Serene Highness, the Duke of Lorraine, and the Elector of Bavaria ...A day by day account of the Allied advance on Buda and Pest in Hungary, resulting in the withdrawal of the Ottoman garisson and a Treaty of Peace. The wry joke "the operation was successful, but the patient died" might describe the liberation of Buda and Pest by the united Christian armies in 1686. The two towns were utterly destroyed, with only a few thousand people remaining alive inside the walls by the time the Turks were vanquished. Having survived the Turkish period intact, the royal palace was destroyed in the siege. Resettlement and rebuilding were gradual, and formerly Gothic Buda took on a decidedly baroque appearance during the process. Though it would never again be a royal seat, the palace was rebuilt and expanded over the years. Hungary was to be ruled by the victorious House of Habsburg until the collapse of the Habsburg empire in World War I. - (Titlepage restored).Extremely rare, unrecorded variant. Not in Apponyi.

Including a description of Constantinople with fine view. He was trying to take advantage of the interest in the Levant aroused by the Austro - Venetian - Turkish wars of 1684 - 1690. Many of the plates were based on engravings from Coronelli’s Memorie Istoriografische della Morea. All the Enderlin publications are related and made use of many of the same plates. There was one publication every year from 1685 to at least 1693 (Collection Contominas 239). The work was probably inspired by the increased interest in Ottoman affairs which followed the unsuccessful siege of Vienna by the Turks in 1683, rather than through any pressing need to communicate first-hand information about Constantinople to actual travellers (Koç p.175).

Volume II desbribes the author’s travels to Egypte, Palestine, Greece and Syria. According to Pingaud, Ferrières was in Aleppo in 1783. He travelled to Persia where he represented himself to the Shah as a precursor of the French envoy, and later he undertook a political mission for Vergennes, French ambassador at Constantinople prior to Choiseul-Gouffier. He also collected medals and antiquities for his patron Hennin (Blackmer p. 128).Der Franzose Louis Francois, comte de Ferrieres-Sauveboeuf (um 1750 - 1814) bereiste 1782 - 1789 das Osmanische Reich als Kaufman und war, nach seinem Zeugnis, mit einer geheimen diplomatischen Mission in Konstantinopel, Trabzon, Erzerum, Jars, Jerewan, etc. und lieferte Informationen über den russischen - türkischen Krieg von 1787 - 1792. Er war Anhänger der Franzosische Revolution und attackierte. in seinem Werk den royalistisch gesonnen französische Botschafter an der Porte Choiseul - Gouffier (Chatzipanagioti-Sangmeister, p. 216). Ferrières-Sauveboeuf (1762-1814) was notably critical of Choiseul-Gouffier's political mission for the latter's predecessor, the comte de Vergennes. Other sources, however, suggest that Ferrières-Sauveboeuf was involved in arms trading in Turkey on his own account, and had quarrelled with Choiseul-Gouffier before being expelled from Constantinopl (The Ömer Koç Collection I, 159). - A fine set.Atabey Collection 428; Blackmer Collection 590; Weber 598; Boucher de la Richarderie, I, p.199.
