BOSKOVI'C [BOSCOVICH], RUDJER JOSIB:
Giornale di un viaggio da Constantinopoli in Polonia. Con una sua relazione delle Rovina de Troja. Bassano, a spese remondini di Venezia, 1784.
. Pp. xxiv, 231. Contemporary calf, spine gilt in compartments, rubbed, red edges. Bookplate (Library of Ericsberg castle, Sweden). First Italian edition of a travel account devoted to Turkey, Bulgaria and Moldavia, and includes a chapter about Troy based on Pietro Correr's report from his visit in 1761. Originally published in French at Lausanne in 1772, translated from Boscovich's manuscript by Pierre Henin. Rudjer Josib Boscovi'c was born in 1711 in Ragusa (Dalmatia) and became a Jesuit diplomat and polymath who made several scientific and diplomatic missions around the world. He joined the British Ambassador Sir James Porter to Constantinople in 1746. On his return journey he travelled through Bulgaria and Moldavia before he reached Warsaw where he stayed for several months. It's possible that his ms was translated during the time in Warsaw since his friend Pierre Henin served at the French embassy there. Cf Atabey 137. Whyte p. 220.
