Contemporary limp vellum, covers ruled and decorated in gilt with fleur-de-lis. Bookplate (Paul de Fleury). Originally published in Vienna 1683.A scarce news pamphlet which tells the story of Kulczycki (1640-94), a Polish Lithuanian nobleman who was considered a hero for his actions during the Battle of Vienna in 1683. He volunteered as courier of Prince Starhemberg, the commanadant of Vienna, to make contact with the forces of Duke Charles of Lorraine. Disguised as a Turkish soldier Kulczycki left Vienna and managed to cross the enemy lines to meet the Duke, and then return to Vienna with a promise of imminent relief. Because of his message the defenders held out until the allied armies relieved the city on September 12 1683. The text follows with information about Kulczycki's dealings with coffee. According to a legend Kulczycki, as a reward, was allowed to keep large quantities of coffee beans left behind by the beaten Turks as personal booty. He was the founder of the first coffee house in Vienna called "Hof zur Blauen Flasche". Hnersdorff, Coffee Bibl., pp 815-6 (a copy with slightly different engraved portrait; also forming the title).
