Jehannot R., “Voyage de Constantinople pour le rachat des captives”, Paris, 1732. First and only edition. Contemporary full leather rubbed, inside clean. Pp. ,401p., without the only one plate (as Blackmer’s and Atabey’s copies), very good overall. Jehannot was sent to Constantinople in an attempt to ransom French captives (a list of the captives is given at the end of the work). He travelled through the Greek Archipelago visiting some islands (Patmos, Dilos etc) and later travelled to Anatolia visiting Nicomidia (Izmit) and Nikaia (Iznik). He gives a very detailed image of Constantinople, describing the Turkish administration, the monuments of the capital and focusing in the multinational society of the city and the customs of each nationality. VERY RARE. Atabey 617, Blackmer 871.
