The Torch of the Ottoman Empire presents the life and work of a truly remarkable person, Ignatius Mouradgea d'Ohsson, and through him, the Ottoman Empire of the late eighteenth century. In revolutionary Paris d'Ohsson published in 1789 what is maybe the best description of the social history of the Ottoman Empire, Tableau General de I'Empire Othoman. D'Ohsson's book was extravagantly illustrated with the help of the best artists in Constantinople qorking for Abdulhamid I and Selim III. The most renowned artists of pre-revolutionary France then executed the gravures in Paris. Some motifs, reproduced also in this present book, still remain quite unique. Through these engravings, an intimate reality is revealed to us, bringing us very close to a universe long since vanshed. Original bdg. Dust wrapper. Fine. Oversize and very heavy volume.
