Title : Recueil de cent estampes representant differentes nations du Levant...
Map maker : [LE HAY] FERRIOL, Charles de.
Date : Paris. Chez le Hay & Duchange Collambat. 1714 & 1715..
Size : 20.1 x 13.0 inches. / 51.0 x 33.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive colours, heightened with gold.

Description :The 100 engraved plates are beautifully coloured and heightened with gold. The colouring is recently added but in the style of the time.
Charles de Ferriol, who was the French Ambassador to the Sublime Porte from 1699 to 1709, commissioned the plates for this work. They are of particular interest since they cover both the Turkish Court, the military &c., as well as the various costumes of the peoples of the Empire: the Greeks, Armenians, Wallachians and so on.
The images themselves were engraved after drawings by the Flemish artist Van Mour, an inhabitant of Constantinople at the beginning of the eighteenth century.
Recueil de cent estampes is an elaborate costume book comprised of numerous plates depicting the exotic dress of Turkish courtiers, individuals from the different classes of Turkish society, and natives of the various countries that were part of the Ottoman Empire or "Levant" as it was known during this period.
These beautifully rendered images were engraved after drawings by the Dutch artist Jean-Baptiste Van Mour (1671-1737), who accompanied de Ferriol to Istanbul in 1699, where he avidly sketched views of the bustling city and its inhabitants and gained privileged access to the court of Ahmed III (1703-1730). Van Mour remained in Istanbul for 37 years and was later appointed Peintre ordinaire du Roi en Levant in 1725.
