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]
