First and only edition. FOLIO, 33x22cm, pp. , 864, . Contemporary full vellum slightly soiled, manuscript title to spine, ottoman manuscript inscription in half title, engraved frontis, title in red and black. Complete with ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY SIX (176) fine copper engravings, of various size, in the text and 22 vignettes. Very light scattered staining, otherwise clean and fine. A very good copy. A SPLENDID PUBLICATION RICHLY ILLUSTRATED. Issued with Imperial patronage to celebrate the peace of Karlowitz and the Christian victory, this combined work is devoted to the Emperor Leopold. An extremely important and influential work which provides the most analytical image of the Levant and the full account of Ottoman affairs from 1664 up to the end of 17th century. Many parts deal with Greece. Most of the copper engravings had been prepared by the best artists of the time (many signed, other unsigned), specially for this Imperial publication and had never been re-printed, except ~20 engravings that are coming from Rycaut work (and has been used as vignettes) and very few other. Includes original impressive views of many cities in the Levant (Constantinople, Athens, Nafplio, Koroni, Kalamata, Korinthos, Iraklio, Halkis, Chania, Nafpaktos etc) and in Hungary, many scenes of battles and naval battles, important persons (Kings, Sultans, officers), maps (of Chios or Preveza, neither in Zacharakis), unusual scenes of everyday life in the Levant etc. Regarding Greece, it is certain that most (but not all) of the material came from eyewitnesses that had been in the places during operations, most probably drawings from officers of the Venetian army (as the drawings of Lefkada, Methoni and Nafplio attacks) or had simply visited the places (as Iraklio, Chania and the many scenes of life in the Levant). EXTREMELY RARE. Not in Atabey or Blackmer.
