Title : Memoires, historiques & geographiques du Royaume de la Moree, Negrepont, & des places maritimes jusques à Thessalonique. Recueillis & enrichis des cartes des païs & des plas des places..
Map maker : CORONELLI, V..
Date : Amsterdam, 1686.
Size : 6.1 x 3.9 inches. / 15.5 x 10.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Important work, with 41 (of 42) folding engraved plates, maps, plans and views showing cities, fortifications, Greek islands etc., engraved by A. Meijer, after Coronelli. First French translation: Wolfgang, Waesberge, Boom, & van Someren, 1686.

The original Italian edition appeared earlier that same year, and the French translation by Barbin appeared in 1687 only. The work starts with a geographical description of the mountains and rivers of Greece, then it treats the various cities and isles of Greece, each with their own history, illustrated with plates of fortifications, views of cities and harbours. At the time, Greece was in the centre of Europe's interest for it was the battle-field where the Venetian Republic defeated the Turks, pushing the ever threatening Ottoman Empire back to their own territory. The battle between Venice and the Turks of 1685 and the victory of the Venetian army in 1686 are also described.

A copy with the 42 plates sold here in March 2008 for $ 6,000 (not including buyers commission)!



Condition : Worn and damaged contemporary calf. No title label to spine, loose boards. Interior with good impression, plates/maps in good condition, a few with short repaired splits/tears. One plate with slight loss to bottom corner. Slight browning and soiling, occasional faint dampstaining. Still a good copy of this valuable book!
