XXVI,623; XIV, 690 pp. First published in 1888. - Charles Montagu Doughty (1843-1926) was an improbable candidate for Arabian laurels. He was also tactless and uncompromising, refusing either to conceal his Christianity or to affect any sympathy for Islam ('the most dangerous grown confederacy and secret conspiracy, surely, in the whole world', he called it). Not surprisingly his travels became a succession of trials and humiliations. The wonder is that he survived at all (Keay, World exploration, p.73). - A classic of travel literature of a European colonial perspective on the Middle East.Europe and the Arab world, 70.

EPPENDORFF, Heinrich von. Convolute of 4 works dealing with the first crusades, the conquest of Constantinople and Rhodes by the Turcs, for the first time translated into German by the humanist author Heinrich von Eppendorff (1496-1551). His extensive translation activity deserves greater attention in terms of style and content. He played a major part in making popular prose in Germany popular and, with its powerful proverbial, latinizing sentence formations, having inserted a disparaging language into the thinking of the German people. Strassburg, Georgen Messerschmidt für Hans Knobloch, 1551. 4 volumes in 1. Folio. Later boards. (4),153 lvs. FONTANUS, Jacobus. Der schönen Insel und porten Rhodus verlust/ die Solimannus der Türckische Kaiser im M.D.XXII jar/ am hailigen weihenacht tag/ in seinen gwalt bracht. The Order of the Knights Hospitaller had participated in the crusades and in 1309 established itself on the island of Rhodes. The island had withstood Ottoman sieges in 1460 and 1480. In 1522 Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent dispatched a force. The fortress of Rhodes held out for several months; the island, however, proved untenable. Starved, Grand Master Philippe de Villiers surrendered 21 December 1522. On January 1523 the Knights withdrew. In 1530 Emperor Charles V. transferred the island of Malta to the Knights. Fontanus was a Flemish jurist, later judge of the appeal court in Rhodes and attaché to Giles Caoursin the vice-chancellor of Rhodes. Fontanus lived through the siege and capitulation, and was an eye-witness of such important events as the audience of the Sultan with the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes on the 26th and 29th of December (Blackmer p.133).

Die belegerung und eroberung der Kaiserlichen statt Constantinopolis/ welche Mahomet der Türck als man nach Christi geburt, M.CCC. und liii gezahlt/ dem Kaiser Constantino abgedrungen.Leonard of Chios was Dominican and Archbishop of Mytilene In 1452, Cardinal Isidor of Kiev stopped at Lesbos on his way to Constantinople to conduct negotiations for a union between the Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches. He invited Leonard to join him and the latter arrived at Constantinople in October 1452. He was an eyewitness of the capture of Constantinople by Mehmet II in May 1453. He participated in the councils of the defenders and in the defence of the sector of Saint Demetrios, that Isidore commanded. Both Isidore and Leonard were captured, but soon released or ransomed. Leonard was able to buy some books from the Turks and managed to find passage to Chios, from where he wrote to Pope Nicholas V a detailed account. Written in Latin, he "describes the conquest in a fashion hostile to the Byzantines and Venetians but favorable to the Genoese".

Into Afrique and the Greater Asia. - 'In 1627 Herbert travelled to Persia as a member of the entourage of Sir Dodmore Cotton, accompanied by Sir Robert Sherley. Cottton had been appointed ambassador to Persia as a result of the return of Robert Sherley in 1623. The embassy had produced two rival ambassadors, Sherley and Nagd Ali Beg (Nogdi Ali Beg), each of whom had denounced the other as an imposter. James I therefore decided to send Cotton as his ambassador to Persia to clarify these matters, accompanied by the two interested parties, Sherley and Ali Beg. Thomas Herbert was to accompany the mission. Sailing via the Cape of Good Hope, Madagascar and Goa, the party landed at Surat on 27.11.27. There Ali Beg deliberately took on overdose of opium and killed himself .. Herbert sailed on 18.12.27 for Persia and landed at Gombroon .. they continued to Teheran, and then to Qazvin where both Robert Sherley and Cotton died of dysentery. Herbert, however, continued his travels, visiting Lar, Shiraz, Esfahan, Tehran, Qum, Kashan and eventually returning to Gombroon. From there he made his way to Surat (December 1628), and in April 1629 sailed for London, visiting en route Ceylon, the Coromandel coast, Mauritius and St. Helena' (Howgego p.503/504). Herbert 'gives a description of Persian coffee customs which is probably the earliest in English language' (Hünersdorff/Hasenkamp p.686). Pages 188--192 contain the Ontdeckingh van America door Madoc ap Owen Gwyneth.

Contemporary half calf (spine ends restored). With engraved title-page, 6 engraved maps and 61 plates on 41 leaves, engraved by Romeyn de Hooghe. Only a few complete copies are known of this collection of etchings by Romeyn de Hooghe (1654-1708), one of the greatest Dutch etchers of the late 17th century. They were first issued in the book by Simon de Vries, Curieuse aenmerckingen der bysonderste Oost en West-Indische verwonderenswaerdige dingen, Utrecht 1682. The plate-work contains a world-map, map of Europe, Asia, Africa and 2 maps of America and very fine etchings of the far and exotic continents. The etchings give a baroque profusion of images, every engraving overflows with pictorial elements composed through and next to each other. They depict beautiful scenes of plants and animals and views and belong according to Landwehr to the most interesting of the artist's work. They also depict Viginian ceremonies, Brazilian sugar production, Indian ship-building, a diamont-mine, Japanese Gods, Japanese trade, Chinese court ceremonies, an Abyssinian march, a Turkish prison, and many other views and scenes of daily life and of local industry of the East and the West , all of great artistic value. Romeyn de Hooghe's work about America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa gives us a look between blinkers, it is the image of prejudice, but it was the expression of the society of which he was a part. We may not, due to the fact that we are undoubtedly full of our prejudice, blame the artist, but it is good to analyze his vision, especially because the reverberations of such interpretations of colonizing powers are still felt today (Van Veen's Introduction to the facsimile edition of 1979). - Incredibly rich and interesting collection of plates in fine condition of the East and West Indies..Landwehr, Romeyn de Hooghe, 58; Hollstein IX, 1039-1086 (incomplete); Sabin 32805; Cat.
