About this Item: Paris, Chanlaire & Mentelle, 1798-1799., 1799. Original outline colour. Dissected and laid on linen in two sections, 880 x 940 mm & 660 x 940 mm. A two-sheet wall map showing Prussia, Turkey, Egypt and Abyssinia in the west, and the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan, Persia, Arabia and Somalia in the east. Two inset maps show the routes from Siré to Gondar and from Gondar to the sources of the Nile. According to the inscription, the map is based on that of "the late J. B. Laborde" (Jean-Benjamin de Laborde [1734-94], a traveller and musician), with amendments; however we have been unable to trace a map of the region by him. - The vast map was published to satisfy French interest when their seemingly-unstoppable General Bonaparte turned his attention to the conquest of Egypt in 1798. Napoleon had captured Malta en route to Egypt, and the oval title vignette shows him overseeing the burial of the French dead under Pompey's Pillar after the capture of the important port city of Alexandria (July 1798). - After the defeat of the Mameluk army at the Battle of the Pyramids it was Napoleon's intention to subdue the rest of the Ottoman Empire before moving to threaten British interests in India. However, as the political situation in Paris was deteriorating, Napoleon decided to leave his army in Egypt in 1799, returning to France to become First Consul. His army was less fortunate, surrendering to the British at Alexandria in 1801. - This map is very scarce: the French citizens' interest in maps of the Orient evaporated as quickly as Napoleon's.

Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient, gesammelt auf: Mayr, H. von

About this Item: München, Heinrich von Mayr, 1839-1840. Oblong elephant folio (39.4 x 51.7 cm). Ten instalments, each of six finely lithographed and hand-coloured plates with one explanatory text leaf, for a total of 60 plates, and a hand-coloured lithographed pictorial title and dedication page; in ten uniform hand-coloured pictorial wrappers.= Very rare complete, hand-coloured copy, as issued, of the magnificent, large, illustrations of the Holy Land, Middle East and Malta. The original wrappers are hand-coloured as well. The Nuremberg artist Heinrich von Mayr (1806-1871) accompanied the Duke Maximilian II of Bavaria (1811-1864; from 1848 onwards King of Bavaria) and his entourage as a personal painter on an eight-month "Grand Tour" from Bavaria to the Orient and back. "Ermunternd wirkten die ersten Aufträge des Herzogs Maximilian, welcher, nachdem der junge Künstler 1832 und 1833 am Hofe des Fürsten von Thurn und Taxis mehrere größere Gemälde, Cavalcaden, Jagden und dgl. ausgeführt hatte, denselben als artistischen Begleiter auf seine orientalische Reise 1838 und 1839 mitnahm. Die Titelverleihung zum herzoglichen Cabinetsmaler war nur eine auszeichnende Förmlichkeit, da der Herzog den Künstler persönlich hochhielt und mit wahrer Freundschaft ehrte. Als Frucht dieser Aegypten, Nubien, Palästina, Syrien und Malta umfassenden Reise gab M. die beiden großen, damals gerechtes Auffehen erregenden Prachtwerke heraus "Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient" (München und Leipzig 1839 ff., lithogr. von F. Kaiser, 60 Blätter)" (Deutsche Biographie). They travelled from Munich to Venice, Corfu, Patras, Athens, Alexandria, and Cairo to the Holy Land. They then travelled via Malta back to Munich, arriving in September 1838. The illustrations depict ancient monuments as well as ordinary life, including views of street life in Cairo, various views of Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem, Karnak, and Luxor; the Sphinx and Great Pyramids of Gizeh, and many others, including Alexandria, Malta, etc., etc. Each illustration has a different, broad, pictorial border. Some letterings heightend in gold. The text is in two columns: German and French. Title with two pieces of paper stuck to the back, some small marginal tears and an occasional brown spot. Overall a fine, clean copy of this rarity. Kainbacher, 265 ("RRR - Rarität"). Seller Inventory # 67631

About this Item: , 1859-60., 1859. Albumen print from a waxed paper negative (calotype). Image Size: 26.5 x 19 cm. (10.5 x 11.5 inches). "Born to a wealthy family in the north of France, Louis De Clercq [1836-1901] was a military courier for Napoleon III during the Austrian campaign of 1859. When he was sent by the Marquis de Vogüé to Latakieh in early September 1859, Louis De Clercq was twenty-three years old and already a passionate archaeologist. He was to join the geographer and explorer Emmanuel Guillaume Rey in his exploratory mission of Syria. Rey was also actively involved with photography, and it is likely that the two photographed together, and even influenced one another in their work. However, Rey’s photographs remained unknown, while De Clercq, upon his return to France, published his ‘Voyage en Orient, 1859-60,’ six extraordinary albums of photographs in five volumes, consisting of 222 plates of rare beauty as well as of scientificand archaeological interest. The area covered during De Clercq’s trip was from Syria in the north to Egypt in the south. Most of his photographs deal with the ancient architecture of the Near East, but they are of a most unusual fashion and seen as never before through a modern eye" (Perez).Though De Clercq self-published these volumes in a reported edition of 50, only about a dozen sets--both intact and broken--are known to have survived, most of them in institutional collections.

This 1811 edition is based on Chardin?s classic account of life and society in Persia, complete with new plates, coincided with renewed French imperial ambitions, aimed at rivaling the British possessions in India. Chardin a Frenchman was the son of a jeweller. He set out in company with a Lyon merchant named Raisin in 1665 for Persia and India. After a highly successful journey, during which he had received the patronage of Shah Abbas II of Persia, he returned to France in 1670. He set out again for Persia in August 1671. This second journey was much more adventurous than the first and did not reach Isfahan till June 1673. In Isfahan he was appointed the Shah's personal jeweler by Suleiman I.

Voyages du Chevalier Chardin, en Perse, et: CHARDIN, Sir John.

About this Item: Le Normant Paris, 1811. With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4, with additional large folding map of Asia with outline coloured by hand by P. Lapie, 1810, engraved by Blondeau, all protected with original tissue guards. Recent half-calf over marbled boards. Attractive, fresh example of the atlas, uncut, from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. Printed on thick paper and extra-illustrated with a large hand-coloured map of the whole region. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

About this Item: Paris & Strasbourg, Veuve Berger-Levrault & fils, 1859., 1859. Folio (465 x 310 mm). Title, 2 pp. (list of plates), 147 plans and tables (the majority folding). Contemporary half cloth with original printed boards. The monumental atlas volume of this French General Staff account of the most famous operation of the Crimean War. "This book was compiled by General Charles Auger (1809-59), Deputy Chief of Staff of the artillery of the army of the East, based on the original notes of artillery officers who took part in the siege; it was reviewed by the General Thiry, artillery commander of the Eastern army" (cf. Brunet). The Siege of Sevastopol lasted from September 1854 until September 1855, during the Crimean War. The French, Ottoman, and British allies landed at Eupatoria on 14 September 1854, intending to make a triumphal march to Sevastopol, the capital of the Crimea, with 50,000 men. The 56-kilometre traverse took a year of fighting against the Russian forces. Major battles along the way were conducted, and finally, Sevastopol surrendered in September 1855. During the siege, the allied navy undertook six bombardments of the capital, on 17 October 1854; 9 April, 6 June, 17 June, 17 August, and 5 September 1855. The Russian field army withdrew before the allies could encircle it. The siege was the culminating struggle for the strategic Russian port in 1854-55 and was the final episode in the Crimean War. - Boards soiled and rubbed along edges, scattered spotting throughout, some paper flaws. Bookplates of the Bourges Artillery School on the pastedown, cancelled and with later bookplate "Cercle militaire de Fontainebleau", marking this as a gift of the French War Minister.
