First published at Venice in 1560 - 1561 without illustrations. With ownership stamps and bookplate of Loenis Olschki. - The work contains an important collection of source material of the Turks edited by Sansovino. It includes the report by the Bishop Leonoard of Chios on the fall of Constantiniople, written only a few weeks after the Turks took over the city, and also the important work by Spandugino comprising the earliest description of Ottoman manners, religion and government. Excerpts from Menavino, Cambini, Giovio and Barletius are also included (Blackmer p. 314).Francesco Sansovino was born in Rome in 1521 and brought to Venice following the sack of his native city in 1527. He studied law in Padua and Bologna. After attempting a career as courtier at the court of Pope Julius III, he eventually returned to Venice. There he married and lived quiet until his death in 1583. A more favourable view of the Turks was put forwards by the famous Venetian historiographer Francesco Sansovino, where he depicted a more enlightened vision of the Ottoman prince within the Renaissance framework, drawing similarities between the figures of the Greaco-Roman antiquity and certain Ottoman Sultan (Soykut 2003 / p. 58).Atabey Collection 1088 (ed. of 1560): an important and influential history; Blackmer Collection. 1487 (ed. of 1654); Göllner 1243.

Amsterdam, 1717.Engraved map of Hungary, Transylvania, Slavonia, Bosnia, Croatia and Dalmatia, decorated in the upper right corner showing a battle scene of the Austrian troops and the Turkish troops. Ca. 51 x 57 cm. Map of Hungary after Comte Luigi Marsigli (1658-1730), an Italian military engineer who surveyed Hungary and the Danube 1696-99 after the peace agreement between Austria and the Ottoman Empire.Depicting the Christian territories in Europe under Ottoman rule. In 1687 the Christian allies regained Hungary and the south of the Peloponnese fell to the Venetians. These wars diverted the attention of the public to the European frontiers of the Ottoman Empire. Numerous maps were issued to illustrate the fighting between the Ottoman and the West. Commercial publishers in the Low Countries such as Johannes Danckerts (Amsterdam / ca. 1690) and Pieter Schenk (Amsterdam / ca. 1695) produced maps of south - east Europe in large format. They refer to the “Christian kingdom” of Hungary, Greece and the Peleponnese, and a ‘Cristianised’ Apollo is the main feature of the decorative cartouche. The basic purpose of these maps was to provide the European public with cartographic images of the contemporary theatre of war. (Tolias 2011, p. 219 - 223) [Boeknr.: 35366 ]

Seine Wertung und Beschreibung türkischen Sitten und Gewohnheiten ist frei von den Vorurteilen seiner Zeitgenossen (Göllner p.112). Spandugino, or Spandounes, was a well-connected Christian of Byzantine Greek extraction (his mother was a Cantacuzene) whose family had settled in Venice after 1453. He seems to have travelled to Constantinople in c. 1503. He began compilling this account of Ottoman history as a way of coping with the shock of events. His text was first written in Italian in c. 1509 and published in a French translation in Paris in 1519, followed by a German translation in Bamberg in 1523; but he later revised the text more than once, with the final version being presented to Henry of Valois (later king Henry II) in 1538. Although Spandugino’s account was primarily intended to alert Christians to the dangers of Ottoman power, his descriptions are accurate and reliable, and the book remains one of the major sources of information about Constantinople in the early years of the 16th century (Angus O’Neill, Koç collection, 9). - (Some marginal foxing and light damstain to corner of some leaves).Atabey Collection French ed. of 1896 only; Gollner 912.

Aus dieser Mittelstellung heraus versuchte er einen Ausgleich zwischen beide Lagern herbeizuführen, um Ludwig XIV aus seinem Zweckbundnis mit den Türcken zu lösen. Der vorliegende Flugschrift ist der Form nach eine Würdigung des päpslichen Versuchs, dem Inhalt nach eine harte und eindeutige Darstellung des habsburgischien Position. Die Jahrangabe auf dem Titel ist offensichtlich fehlerhaft. Innozenz XII regierte von 1691 - 1700 und gleich zu Begin wird die Eroberung von Namur durch die Franzosen (1692) erwähnt.

LVI,274; 301; 252; 208 pp. First edition; with 2 armorial woodcut stamps of Henr. Petit. - Baron De Tott (1733-1793) was born in France of Hungarian extraction. He first visited Constantinople in 1755 as secretary to his uncle, the comte de Vergennes, who had just been appointed ambassador to the Porte; he stayed there for eight years, learning Turkish and gathering intelligence, then, after a spell in Switzerland, he was sent to the Crimea in 1767 as the French consul. He was commissioned by the Ottoman government to reform the army and the navy; his fortifications on the Black Sea and the Bosphorus helped defend the Ottoman fleet from the Russians in the Russo-Turkish war of 1768-74 (The Ömar Koç Collection I, p.262).

Amsterdam, 1785. 130,(1) pp.Tott inspired some controversy: the French writer and diplomat Claude-Charles de Peyssonnel (1727-1790) was one of his principal detractors, and it has been suggested that throughout his career, particularly during his expedition to Egypt with Sonnini in 1776-78, he was working as a French secret agent; but these memoirs, often reprinted, have always been appreciated for their objective view of the Ottoman empire (Koç p.262). - A fine set.Attabey Collection 1227; Weber p.121 (later editions only).

Most of the work is concerned with the Turco-Venetian campaign in the Morea 1716 -1717.Unique édition, très peu commune, de ce texte attribué au polygraphe Anthelme Tricaud (1671-1739) par Barbier. Il relate essentiellement les opérations menées en 1715-1716 dans le cadre de la Troisième guerre austro-turque, où Venise se trouva l'alliée des Habsbourg contre l'Empire ottoman: les Turcs voulaient en effet reconquérir la Morée (Péloponnèse), cédée à Venise par le Traité de Carlowitz (1699), et déclarèrent la guerre à la République dès décembre 1714, tout en menant une double offensive, terrestre et maritime, contre les possessions vénitiennes. Il fallut l'intervention des 70 000 hommes du Prince Eugène et la victoire autrichienne de Peterwardein (5 août 1716) pour soulager les Vénitiens, et mettre fin à la guerre. Par le traité de Passarowitz, signé le 21 juillet 1718, la Turquie cédait le Banat de Temesvar, la Valachie occidentale et le nord de la Serbie, mais gardait la Morée, que les Vénitiens avaient été incapables de reprendre.Navari, Collection Contominas, 748.

In 1667 he qualified for his medical license and in 1669 took his M.D. while practicing medicine in Gotha. His affiliation was Lutheran and published on alchemy. Wedel was an extremely productive author. In 1673 he assumed the chair of anatomy, surgery, and botany at the University of Jena. Later he assumed the chair of theoretical medicine. Wedel was Rector of the university some ten times. In 1679 he became the personal physician to the Duke of Weimar, and in 1685 to the Prince of Saxony. [Boeknr.: 29663 ]
