Paris Merigot & Piget 1747 - 2 volumes, second edition, 4to., titles in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved frontispieces and 28 plates, some folding including large folding panorama of Constantinople, contemporary mottled calf gilt, neatly rebacked to style, red and green labels, an excellent set. Guer was something of an "armchair" traveller and the text was compiled from Grelot, Busbecq, Belon, Rycaut, etc. However the engravings make this a valuable work: "This charming work contains views, genre scenes and costumes of Turkey, engraved by Duflos after designs by Boucher and Hallé." Atabey. Cf. Atabey 534; Blackmer 732; Koç, Constantinople I, 125. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
