WORTLEY MONTAGU, LADY MARY:
Lettres, écrites pendant ses voyages en diverses parties du monde. Traduits de l'anglois. Nouvelle édition. Beacoup plus correcte que les éditions qui viennent de paroître. Two parts in one volume. Paris, Duchesne, 1764.
. 12mo. Pp. viii, 240; (ii), 223. Contemporary calf, richly gilt, gilt inner dentelles, rubbed. Front cover and the first part of the book have small wormholes running through the text, more severe at pages 79-139 with slight loss of text. A French edition of Lady Wortley Montagu famous Letters first published in London the previous year. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was the first lady to travel abroad for mere curiosity's sake. In 1716 her husband was appointed Ambassador to the Porte and she decided to join him, which was considered a scandalous decision. They settled into a hilltop palace at Pera in Constantinople, which became their home for 18 months. Her letters (written after her return to England) provide an intriguing example of authorial selectivity. She treats the political, historical and social morals of the Germans, Austrian and Turkish courts. She became a great admirer of Turkish culture and her work includes insights that were exceptional for their time; the paradoxical freedoms conferred on Muslim women by veil, the value of experimental work by Turkish doctors on inoculation and the beauty of Arab poetry and culture. Cf. Atabey 829-30. Cox p. 229. Robinson p. 32.

 ZILBERTI, FRANCESCO:, [OTTOMAN TRADE OF ALUM IN THE 15TH CENTURY]. [Two autograph letters signed to Marco Bembo in Constantinople, concerning Venetian trading of Turkish alum mined at Foça in Anatolia]. Pera & Foça, March 1480.
ZILBERTI, FRANCESCO:
[OTTOMAN TRADE OF ALUM IN THE 15TH CENTURY]. [Two autograph letters signed to Marco Bembo in Constantinople, concerning Venetian trading of Turkish alum mined at Foça in Anatolia]. Pera & Foça, March 1480.
. Two hand-written letters (22 x 30 cm) written in Italian (mercantesca), ink on paper. The first is dated Pera, March 1480 (duplicating letter sent from [Foa February 29, 1480 ?]) comprising one and a quarter pages. The second is dated Foa March 5, 1480 comprising one page. Both on single sheets with manuscript address panels penned on verso, old folds, well preserved. Both letters were sent to Constantinople addressed to Marco Bembo, a Venetian nobleman and merchant who at the time was based in Pera, by his business partner Francesco Zilberti. The letters were written at Foa (close to today's Izmir) on the Aegean coast of Anatolia. Zilberti reports about the negotiations for purchasing a cargo of alum, a valuable commodity used as a mordant for textile dyes which for centuries had been imported into Europe from the Byzantine Empire. After the Turks captured Constantinople in 1453, alum became more difficult to acquire. A decade later large quantities of alum were found in the vicinity of Tolfa, a small town not far from Rome. The mines were owned by the Papacy which was determined to ensure maximum profits from this source. The Papacy formed cartels of miners, bankers, refiners, and traders, and thereby tried to create a monopoly on alum in Europe. However, the Venetians, having signed a peace treaty with Mehmet II in 1479, continued to trade in Turkish alum, ignoring threats of deportation. In the first letter Zilberti explains that a dispatch of a cargo of alum has been delayed because the local pasha is away observing a local religious holiday bayram. Zilberti describes in detail the negotiations concerning his differences of opinion with the pasha and various notaries on the weighing of the cargo, noting the variations between the Turkish, Venetian and Genoese cantara (a unit of weight). Further he informs Bembo about the qualities of sacks best suited for transporting alum, observing that those they brought with them were considered unsuitable, smaller half-size sacks of tight-woven cotton being better to prevent leakage through the cloth. He writes about the locusts having ruined the cotton crop in the three previous years, barter is being possible in the village below as there is no currency in circulation, etc. In the second letter Zilberti reports about the difficulties with delivering the required documentation to Gallipoli, with some further details about the cargo of alum, and that he has sold some scarlet yarn from Padua to the pilot of the ship, Nochin, who used it for the purpose of ransoming a local slave, etc. The papers provide a good insight into Venetian trade communication during the late 15th century, especially with regard to Ottoman alum imported from Anatolia.
