Ex.: Latere halfleren band, op het schutblad een exlibris van Adolf Melchior, goed exemplaar. Bibl. verw.: van Eeghen/vd Kellen II, 488; Nijhoff/Van Hattum 277; Lit.: NNBW V, 703. De befaamde beschrijving van de stad Haarlem en zijn geschiedenis, met levensbeschrijvingen van zijn belangrijkste inwoners, geïllustreerd met prenten van Romeyn de Hooghe, Jan Luyken en Jacobus Schijnvoet. Vooral De Hooghes etsen van kerken en gebouwen zijn bijzonder fraai; oorspronkelijk hadden de platen - elk ruim 18 bij 24 cm groot - als randversiering gediend op de grote plattegrond van de stad die hij in 1688 had gemaakt. Schrevelius (Haarlem 1572 - Leiden 1653) was rector van de Latijnse school in zijn geboortestad tot hij in 1624 wegens vermeende godsdienstige onrechtzinnigheid werd ontslagen, waarna hij in Leiden hetzelfde ambt ging bekleden. In 1647, op 72-jarige leeftijd publiceerde hij zijn grote werk over Haarlem, in het Latijn, waarna hij zelf de Nederlandse vertaling verzorgde (1648). Deze ruim honderd jaar later verschenen, uitbundig geïllustreerde tweede druk is uitgebreid met de geschiedenis van Haarlem na 1647, waaronder een verslag van het pachtersoproer van 1747. Naast die van De Hooghe bevat het boek vele prenten, waaronder een twaalftal van Jan Luyken, met afbeeldingen van historische gebeurtenissen, zoals de belegering van Haarlem door de Spanjaarden in 1573 en het aanspoelen van een walvis, en van landschappen, gebouwen en ruïnes in de omgeving van Haarlem. En natuurlijk mocht bij een beschrijving van de stad van Laurens Coster, toen nog beschouwd als uitvinder van de boekdrukkunst, een afbeelding van een drukkerij in vol bedrijf niet ontbreken. De twaalf fraaie etsen van De Hooghe, elk 18 x 24 cm, betreffen: Het stad-huys, Vleesch-hal, De Waegh, De Oude Doelen, Heeren logement, Bakenesse Kerck, St Jans Kerck, Groote Kerck, 'Innemen van Damiaten 1188 en nieuw stads wapenschild', 'Belegering der Spaensen van 1572 en 1573', De Nieuwe Kerck en Prinsen Hof.$ Ook leverbaar: een exemplaar in geheel leren band uit de tijd, compleet met alle prenten, maar wat smoezelig in de marges en enkele prenten met scheurtjes en restjes van plakband, voor 1500 euro.

        Relazione della città d'Athene, colle provincie dell'Attica, Focia, Beozia, e Negroponte, ne'tempi, che furono queste passeggiate da. l’anno 1674. E dallo stesso pubblicata l’anno 1688.

      Parma, Galeazzo Rosati 1688 - In 4°, pergamena coeva con tit. ms. al dorso (piccoli forellini di tarlo marginali ai piatti), tagli spruzzati; pp. (8), 135, (1 b.). Ritratto dell’autore, in medaglione, inciso in rame in antiporta, pianta della città di Atene incisa in rame e ripiegata f. t. e altre 5 tavv. incise in rame f. t. raffiguranti il “Tempio di Teseo”, la “Lanterna di Demostene”, il “Tempio de Venti”, il “Tempio di Minerva”, “Cerere”. Edizione originale. Bell’esemplare, su carta forte e ad ampi margini. Cornelio Magni partecipò al viaggio archeologico del Marchese di Nointel (Louis de Béchamel, ambasciatore francese a Costantinopoli) in Oriente, risultando uno dei primi viaggiatori europei a descrivere accuratamente e a delineare graficamente i monumenti che osservava e che si erano resi inaccessibili dopo la conquista turca della Grecia del 1456. Parlando del Partenone ad esempio, dopo averne descritto la struttura, gli ornamenti, le statue e lo stato di conservazione, si abbandona a questa considerazione: “. Vero è, che, e dalla caducità del tempo, e dall’istabilità de’ Governi, e dalla cieca superstitione de’ Turchi, e dalla indiscreta curiosità de’ stranieri, restano così lacere queste grandi opere, che una parte di esse senza teste, altre senza mani, e braccia, in fine quasi tutte mutilate invitano gli occhi alle lagrime di chi invaghito di così eccellenti manifatture nutre un animo tutto venerabondo per la loro perfezione, et antichità. Io per me colmo più d’ignoranza che d’erudizione, sono esente da queste passioni; Tuttavolta o sia per la conversazione di persone in mia compagnia in ciò di profondissimo intendimento, o per il male stato, in che le trovo, non ho potuto non ammirarne il lavoro, e non compatirne la desolazione”. Come è noto, pochi anni dopo queste considerazioni del Magni, nella guerra turco veneziana del settembre 1687, l’Acropoli, utilizzata come magazzino di polvere da sparo, fu colpita da un colpo di bombarda veneziana che provocò danni ingentissimi. La straordinaria importanza di queste relazioni, oltre che nella descrizione di opere e monumenti perduti, oltre che nello sguardo dell’autore, sta anche nella testimonianza che ci offre sullo stato di quei siti dopo oltre due secoli di dominio ottomano e di chiusura al mondo occidentale. Un lungo periodo che pare non sia stato né distruttivo né di particolare tutela della sua conservazione. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Endimione: favola per musica da recitarsi nel Reggio Teatro di Torino. Alla presenza della loro A.A. R.R.Turin, Giovanni Battista Fontana, 1699. 12mo. With the woodcut coat-of-arms of Victor Amadeus II, Duke of Savoy on the title-page. Contemporary stiff wrappers covered with gold-brocade paper.

      B. Forment, "Moonlight on Endymion: in search of 'Arcadian opera,' 1688-1721", in: Journal of seventeenth-century music XIV(2008), pp. 1-36, the present ed. at p. 16; ICCU (2 copies); KVK (3 copies, including the same 2). Very rare libretto printed for distribution to the audience at one of the earliest performances of the 1692 Arcadian opera Endimione, based on the classical Greek myth of Endymion and written in Italian verse by Francesco Lemene (1634-1704). It includes extensive additions to the text that probably appear here for the first time, making it an essential source for any study of the myth's history and development. It may also be the only edition to name the creators of stage sets for the opera, designed for the 1699 Turin production by Ferdinando Galli Bibiena (1657-1743), a well-known architect, designer and painter in service of the Duke of Parma, and executed by Pietro Gio[v]anni Abbati (1683-1745), who had been his apprentice and was active in Parma and Turin. Endymion as revived in the 1690s has been called "a paradigm of the earliest operatic endeavors of the Arcadian Academy" (Forment). The Accademia degli Arcadi was a utopian reaction against the Baroque, attempting to turn Italian culture back to its glorious Renaissance roots. Directly or indirectly it probably inspired many of the later renditions of the Endymion story, including Bach's 1713 Hunt Cantata and Keats's 1818 poem that begins, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever".Owner's inscription. With a faint water stain at the foot in the first 2 quires, minor foxing, small defects in the paper of 1 leaf, and some small black spots on the title-page, but still in good condition. The wrappers are slightly rubbed with a couple bent corners and an occasional small tear or stain, but also in good condition.

        The Alcoran of Mahomet, Translated out of Arabick into French, by the Sieur du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and Resident for the French King, at Alexandria and Newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that Desire to look into the Turkish Vanities.

      Randal Taylor, London 1688 - We offer here a sound early copy of the Koran, freshly rebound in full calf. The volume has four raised bands and is titled in gilt on leather title-label with gilt rules, while the headbands are hand-sewn. This modern binding is not elaborate, but it is strong, plain and workmanlike making the book ideal as a reference copy. The volume comprises title-page, 16 pages of essays, 18 pages on 'The Life of Mahomet' and 511 pages of the Alcoran itself. The top edge of the page block is darkened and has a water stain near the spine which has absorbed to some extent into the book.This very old area of damp, long since dried out, has faintly stained a portion of the text extending to about an inch-and-a-half in a triangular shape fanning out from the centre of the pages.In addition to this, there is slight foxing and darkening of some pages in places, while others are slightly creased. There is a small contempory inked ownership inscription at top of title-page and two smudged ink words on the top of last blank end page. Otherwise the text is in remarkably clean and clear condition for its age, while the volume is now very sound and quite smart in its new binding.

        Lima, Ciudad de los Reyes, Corte y Emporio del Imperio Peruano

      First edition. The map was engraved to illustrate a rare work made for the beatification of Saint Alfonso de Mogrovejo (1538 - 1606) by Francisco Echave y Assu, La estrella de Lima  convertida en sol sobre sus tres coronas el B. Toribio Alfonso Mogrobexo. However, only a few copies of the plan appear to have been printed as the plan is almost always lacking on copies of the book. By the end of the 17th Century, Lima was an important city, both as the Capital of the Viceroyalty that controlled most of Spanish South America, and as a regional trading centre. Mulder's spectacular delineation of Lima surrounded by coats-of-arms, portraits of Saints, and animals, is the first engraved plan of Lima. It "is the first engraved plan of Lima", cited by Winsor. "This rare volume was unknown to Antonio," states Sabin who did not give the location of a copy and whose collation mentions neither the engraved portrait nor the plan." (Nebenzahl). In fact, according to Medina, only copy is known to have the map. Sabin, 21765 (for the book, not mentioning the map).

      Cat. bibl. Natura Artis Magistra 1323 (erroneously counting 31 plates); STCN (5 copies); cf. Bradley III, p. 116 (first English ed.); not in Nissen, BBI & ZBI; for the author: DSB II, p. 390. First and only edition of the Dutch translation of a philosophical overview of nature by Richard Bradley (1688-1732), examining minerals, flora and fauna, in an attempt to demonstrate their practical applications, particularly in agriculture. It is therefore an early example of the conceptualization of the productive and profitable aspects of the natural world. It also includes a description of infertile lands in England with suggestions for improvements, a description of gardens in Great Britain with improvements for the growing of fruit trees, and a chapter on the maintaining of grapevines. It was first published in English in 1721 as A philosophical account of the works of nature. The present edition is translated from the second English edition of 1739, which adds an appendix on fleas and lice, Flemish agriculture and some suggestions for speeding up the growing process of several crops."Bradley was a prolific science writer, ... His style was clear and readable, and his reputation immense; indeed, his publications did much to encourage a scientific approach to gardening and husbandry" (DSB).Minor dampstain on the bottom of the inner margins of the first 15 leaves and some leaves slightly browned. Spine a bit soiled. Very good copy.

        Sud America [Chile, Peru]

      published in Venice. 1688. - 42.7 x 29.3 cm, copper engraving. One of the EXTREMELY RARE GLOBE GORES depicting different parts of the world. Map shows the Western Coast line of South America, and a small vignette of native boats. This exceptional series of globe gores was originally engraved for a 110 cm. diameter terrestrial globe in 1688 - as here. They were subsequently reissued in individual sheet format in Coronelli's "Libro dei globi" and in his World Atlas Isolario in the 1690s. "Coronelli seems to have sought to omit nothing that might be of interest to geographers, navigators and explorers.

        Neuer, vollkommener, verbesserter und ergäntzter Pferd-Schatz.Frankfurt am Main, Johann Philipp Andrea for Georg Heinrich Oehrling, 1688. 2 parts in 1 volume. Small folio (31.5 x 20.5 cm). With engraved frontispiece and 25 engraved folding plates (with figured numbered 1-40). 19th-century half calf.

      Dejager 136; Nissen, ZBI 3185 (calls for 24 plates); VD17 3:311219G (7 copies, incl. 2 incomplete). Second, enlarged and corrected edition of a "very elaborate compilation of the available literature on horsemanship, Pinter von der Au referred to his sources without restraint, from Xenophon and Vegetius, via Rusio and Ruellius to Carraciolo and Zechendorff. Quotations from Cicero and Caesar, Strabo, Plinius and Varro testify to his classical education. With regards to the methods for dressage Pinter leans heavily on Antoine Pluvinel and he is much less inclined to use cruel methods and devices than other stable and riding masters of the 17th century. ... The work is divided into three main parts: (1) on horses in general, horse breeding, care and treatment of horses, livery stable and stud farm, (2) on riding, training and dressage, including bits and reins, and (3) on horse medicine" (Dejager).With library on frontispiece. Binding slightly rubbed and some small restorations to the spine. Some minor thumbing in the margins of the frontispiece, a couple spots on the plates, large tear in the first plate and some false folds; a good copy.

      Antwerp: ex officina Plantiniana Balthasaris Moreti, 1688. Folio, pp. [60], 488, xcix, [1]; bound with: Supplementum missarum pro monasterio Salem, [Salem?: ca. 1700], 8pp. bound with: four single sheet special masses. Printed in red and black throughout, engraved vignette title-p., 3 full-p. copperplate engravings are found before the proper op the season, the ordinary of the mass, and the feast of the Assumption; bound in at the back is an 8-p. supplement for the Cistercian Monastery at Salem in southern Germany; bound in contemporary full black morocco, gilt-tooled paneling on both covers, gilt fillets on spines, leather thongs with brass clasps (one clasp missing); gold and red Dutch floral pastedowns, a.e.g., top and bottom edges gauffered around headbands; some finger soiling throughout, occasional mild dampstaining, but in all a very good, impressive copy. A Catholic altar missal according to the Cistercian use, and employing the black notes and red staves of the Georgian musical notation. This copy was acquired by the Cistercian monastery in Salem in southern Germany (Baden) following the fire in 1697 that destroyed many of the buildings. The monastery secularized in 1802 and the library was moved to Peterhausen, and thence was sold to the University of Heidelberg. A portion of the library, including this volume, was acquired by Baron von Lassberg. The Lassberg collection of post-incunabula was sold en bloc to an Anglo-American bookselling consortium in 1999. The Cistercian Monastery at Salem was an important imperial abbey, founded in 1136 by Bl. Frowin (a companion of St. Bernard of Clairvaux). It was noted in the Middle Ages as being the most beautiful and richest monastery in all of Germany. At the beginning of the 14th century no less than 285 monks called it home. The Church was not destroyed until the fire of 1697, and the rest of the monastery was beautifully rebuilt around it. But by 1698 the monastery had only 49 priests and 13 choir monks. In September 1802, as a consequence of Napoleon's policies, the abbey was secularized and became Schloss Salem, a summer residence for the Margave of Baden. An impressive volume, beautifully printed, and enhanced by the presence of the additional Supplement and single sheet masses at the back. Not in OCLC.

With their astrological observations, and their remarks of natural philosophy, geography, hydrography, and history. Published in the original, by the express orders of His most Christian Majesty. And now made English, and illustrated with sculptures. Octavo (180 x 107 mm). Contemporary unlettered panelled calf, red sprinkled edges. Additional engraved title page and 30 engraved plates, views, and maps, mostly folding, many after Hendrik Claudius. With license-to-print on verso of title page. Page 308 misnumbered 298. Some neat professional repairs to the joints and corners, front free endpaper renewed, ownership inscription erased from front pastedown, slip of plain paper pasted to pastedown, front free endpaper removed, a few trivial marks, most noticeable in the first quire, outer leaves of final quire a little dusty and creased at foot, overall a very good copy. First edition in English of Tachard's Voyage de Siam des pères jésuites (1686); one of two issues, this issue with a cancel title. The first French mission to Siam (modern Thailand) came about as a result of an invitation of Constantine Phaulkon, a Greek adventurer who by a curious twist of fate had become prime minister of Siam. In response to Phaulkon's urging that the king of Siam was ripe for conversion, Louis XIV agreed to send an embassy. The Marquis de Chaumont was selected as ambassador, assisted by the Abbé de Choisy. Six Jesuit fathers were willing to accompany the mission. Tachard stayed with the Siamese mission as geographer; the other five continued to China, where they helped establish the French mission at Peking. Tachard returned to France with the ambassador in December 1685, taking with them Kosa Pan, an official of the Siamese court, as an ambassador to the French king. The embassy reached France in June 1686 and stayed there until March 1687, during which time Tachard wrote this account, before himself returning to Siam on a second expedition. The book also describes the expedition's sojourn at the Cape Colony, where, despite Dutch suspicion of French designs in the region, they received a hospitable welcome from the governor, Simon van der Stel, and the Cape Commissioner Van Rheede. Tachard describes Van der Stel as popular and efficient; they had long conversations and discussed the governor's expedition to Namaqualand and the plants and animals observed. While at the Cape the Jesuits were given the use of a house and a building in the Company's garden from which to make astronomical observations. Local Catholics flocked to visit the Jesuits in their "little observatory" where Tachard made a determination of the longitude of the settlement. Tachard's friendship with Van der Stel's artist, Hendrik Claudius, caused concern as it was thought that Claudius was giving too much political and economic information to the French and later led to him being removed from the Cape. Mendelssohn mentions that Claudius gave Tachard a map of South Africa showing the distribution of "the inhabitants of the country and the rarest animals". This could be the map facing page 66. The illustrations include two pictures of the inhabitants of the Cape Colony (one of Hottentots and one of Namaqua people), as well as several animals and reptiles. The book is well-held institutionally but scarce in commerce: auction records going back to 1957 show only four copies sold in that period.

        Historia general de las conquistas del Nuevo Reyno de Granada.

      - Amberes (Antwerp), Jean Baptiste Verdussen, [1688]. Folio (29.7 x 20.9 cm). Title page, three finely engraved plates (title page and frontispieces preceding chapters) by J. Mulder, [xvi], 599, [vii] pp. Contemporary vellum. Spine with contemporary script title.l A very rare work, in a very good contemporary binding, by the Spanish writer, bishop, and gouvernor of Panamá, Lucas Fernández [de] Piedrahíta (1624-1688). According to Sabin (vol. 15, p. 97) this is "a work of the highest importance for the early history of New Grenada". The work deals with the conquest of the Americas by the Spanish. It is particularly interesting because of the descriptions of the habits of the indigenous people of the Viceroyalty of New Granada" (present-day Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Guyana, southwestern Surinam, parts of northwestern Brazil, northern Peru, Costa Rica and Nicaragua). It also contains a detailed history of the Spanish invaders in the area up to the year 1563. Piedrahíta was born in Bogotá, and probably partly of Indian descent. He became a bishop and was captured, tortured, and later released by the famous English pirate Sir Henry Morgan after sacking the town of Santa Marta. The finely engraved title pages show battle scenes, and both the foremost Indian (chapter one) and Spanish (chapter three) leaders. Old, short annotation on the half title, rear flyleaf with some marginal paper loss, a few skilful paper repairs. "The work in any condition is very rare" (Field). Only very few copies came to auction over the past 45 years and this is definitely the one in the best condition. A fine copy. Field 1215; Sabin, 62704.

He describes the arrival of the French fleet on 26 June, the diplomatic actions between the French and the ruler of Algiers, and the subsequent bombing of the city. The bombing led to reciprocal trials and executions by Algiers's government against the non-native inhabitants of the city, including Espinosa. Algiers was an important base for pirates, who started attacking French ships after the city signed a peace treaty with Great Britain. The French responded with bombardments in 1683 and 1688, which led to a peace treaty in 1690. Browned and with a water stain in the head margin, otherwise in good condition.

        De Beschryving van de Reysen Pauli, en van de Andere Apostolen, met des Selfs Landen en Koningryken daar si het Evangelium Gepredikt hebben

      Amsterdam 1688 - Storica e decorativa carta del parte orientale del Mediterraneo, adornata con 8 vignette di episodi biblici. I alto: la discesa dello Spirito Santo che segna l'inizio della predizione apostolica; Pietro e Giovanni Pietro guariscono uno zoppo; un uomo peccatore crolla ai piedi degli Apostoli, e la lapidazione di S. Stefano. In basso a destra il cartiglio mostra episodi legati alla vita dell'apostolo Paolo: la fologorazione sulla via di Damasco; Dopo l'arrivo a Damasco, uno dei suoi discepoli è stata curata con l'imposizione delle mani; la conversione al cristianesimo. Come missionario, Paolo compì tre viaggi in Medioriente, indicati sulla mappa. Dopo aver terminato il terzo viaggio, tornòa Gerusalemme, dove fu fatto prigioniero dalle guardie romane, portato a Roma e ucciso. Incisione su rame, coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Testo olandese al verso. A decorative map showing the eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor that extends from Rome in the west, Babylon in the east and to Cairo in the south. The eight illustrated cartouches each tell a biblical story. The story begins with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Apostles beginning to spread the Christen faith. As part of this missionary work, Peter and John healed a lame man, a sinful man collapses at the feet of the Apostles and St. Stephen was stoned. At the bottom right the cartouche shows the episodes of the Apostle Paul. On his way to Damascus he met God, who took his sight. After arriving in Damascus, one of his disciples was cured by the laying of hands on his blindness, whereupon he converted to Christianity. As a missionary, Paul made three trips and they are numbered on the map up to 64. After finishing the third trip, he returned to Jerusalem where he was taken prisoner by Roman guards. He was then taken to Rome for his execution. His voyage is clearly illustrated on the map. The figures above the cartouches hold Christ's cross and the sword he was beheaded with in Rome. The center of the map in the black sea has the title cartouche and a mileage scale above it. Copper engraving, hand coloured, in very good condition. Dutch text on verso. Dimensioni 470 360mm

På bagsiden af titelbladet et portræt af Erik den Røde i træsnit og på sidste side et træsnit af en hvalros. Meget rent og velholdt eksemplar af i alt 4 islandske sagaer indbundet i halvlæderbind fra omkring år 1800 med 'The Society of the Writers of the Signet's superexlibris på forpermen. Bind med lette brugsspor. Fire af de første tryk, Hendrick Kruse udførte i bogtrykkeriet i Skalholt, Islands gamle hovedsæde. Bogtrykkeriet, der blev oprettet 1685, har i alt fremstillet 41 tryk, som i dag hører til de største sjældenheder inden for den islandske litteratur. Islandsk produktion af trykte bøger var indtil 1773 karakteriseret ved, at den var underlagt kirkens folk, som kunne fastholde, at der kun var plads til ét trykkeri i Island. Dette trykkeri, som gennem tiderne havde en skiftende geografisk placering (Hólum, Breidabólstad, Skálholt), var i skiftende privat eje, men lå i regelen tæt på et præstekald. I perioden 1594-1685 lå trykkeriet på Hólum, og de bøger, der blev trykt her, var hovedsagelig med et klart religiøst indhold. I 1684 døde indehaveren af trykkeriet på Hólum, Gisli Thorláksson. Dennes bror Thordur Thorláksson, havde da været biskop i Skálholti siden 1674, og han fik overdraget trykkeriett og flyttede det til Skálholts i 1685. Hermed påbegyndtes en af de vigtigste tidsperioder i islandsk bogproduktion. Det vigtigste år er året 1688, for i dette år udgav trykkeriet 'Islendiga-bók Ara fróda Thorgilssonar', 'Landnáma', 'Kristni saga' og 'Greönlandia' af Arngrim Jónsson. Året efter blev første bind af 'Olafs sögu Tryggvasonar' udgivet, og andet bind udkom 1690. Dette er de første oldskrifter, der er trykt på Island og udgivet på islandsk. Trykkeriet i Skálholt virkede i 13 år, og kun i denne periode samt i året 1756, blev der trykt oldnordiske skrifter, herunder sagaer og middelalderlitteratur, i Island.

        Théâtre de la Turquie où sont représentées Les Choses les plus Remarquables, qui s'y passent aujourd'hui. Avec Les Moeurs, le Gouvernement, les Coutumes, & la Religion des Turcs, & de treize autres sortes de Nations qui habitent dans l'Empire Ottoman.

      Jacques Le Fèvre, Paris 1688 - 4 to. [18], 558 pp., + [11], contemporary full calf, title gilt on raised decorated spine consisting of six compartments, brown calf, minor cracking to the spine, decorated gilt spine, last page reprinted with new publishing title saying: "printed for the 1st time on November 13, 1687", book plate Dubois de Fosseux, uniform, scattered spotting and foxing throughout, 3rd impression of the 1st edition. Paris, 1688 (1682). The author of this book was a missionary and orientalist named Justinian de Tours, who by his own account spent 18 years wandering in the Levant. He had taken the religious name Giustiniano when he joined the Capuchin order, and wrote under the pseudonym Michel Febure or Fèvre. He published this book first in Italian, Le Teatro della Turchia was edited in Milan, the first French publication was in 1682. This is a report of the "disorders of Turkey," as he mentions to the reader in his preface. His wish in this work is to denounce the Turks and enlighten the European opinion on the Turkish power, by describing the fragility and the decadence of the empire that he calls the "Babylon of confusion" and by calling for a military re-conquest. He mentions among others, the absence of printing as one of the sources of ignorance,as well as bad government, social and political organisation, the informal practice of religion, superstitions of the people, their weaknesses at sea, etc. His goal was "to make known (for the sake of Christianity) the truth concerning the weakness and impotence of the Turks, by showing the ruin & the disorder of the empire and he is hoping to get Europeans to realise that the conquest of this great empire is much easier to achieve than they think, as once they lose the impression that the Empire is strong, the conquest will be achievable."
