[KOLCZYCKI, JERZY FRANCISZEK (KOLTSCHITZKY, FRANZ GEORG)]:
[Head title] Curiosa relatione del viaggio fatto da quel coraggioso Soldato che portae fuori di Vienna le Lettere à S.A. di Lorena, e riportae le risposte, con tutto ciae che gli è successo in quello. Tradotta fedelmente sa una stampata in lingua tedesca. Venetia, per il Boso, 1683.
. Small 4to. Pp. (8). With engraved plate depicting a portrait of the author in his Turkish disguise and with the city of Vienna in the background. 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". Hünersdorff, Coffee Bibl., pp 815-6 (a copy with slightly different engraved portrait; also forming the title).

 BERGGREN, GUILLAUME (PER) (PHOTOGR.):, [CONSTANTINOPLE - EXCEPTIONELL PANORAMA]  [Attractive grand panorama view of Constantinople composed of fourteen photographic sections]. Constantinople ca 1874-5.
BERGGREN, GUILLAUME (PER) (PHOTOGR.):
[CONSTANTINOPLE - EXCEPTIONELL PANORAMA] [Attractive grand panorama view of Constantinople composed of fourteen photographic sections]. Constantinople ca 1874-5.
. An impressive large-scale panorama about 480 cm long. Fourteen sepia toned photographs, each ca 34 x 26 cm, joined together and mounted on a heavy quality paper made by the renowned French paper manufacturer Canson & Montgolfier. Recently the paper has been professionally restored and the whole laid on an Aero linen made of natural fibres and neutral pH. (The total size is about 500 cm x 53 cm). The panorama shows a view of approximately 270 degrees of the Old City of Istanbul taken from the Galata Tower. The great old mosques (mostly former Byzan tine churches) with their minarets are clearly visible in the background, including the Hagia Sophia and the Suleiman Mosque. Visiible in the foreground are the busy waters of the Golden Horn with numerous steamers and boats approaching the Galata Bridge on the right. Superb quality of the prints. Berggren has signed by hand at the right hand corner of the paper (no printed signatures on the photos as usual). We assume this is a special issue, perhaps for a special occasion or person, most likely made before the smaller folded versions. Guillaume Berggren was born in Stockholm but lived most of his life in Constantinople, where he arrived in 1866 and stayed until his death in 1920. He opened a photographic studio in the fashionable area of Pera. "G. Berggren's photographs are characterized by all the seriousness and creative talent of the serious artist. As a depictor of Anatolia, the Bosporus, Constantinople, and Thrace, he was regarded by his contemporaries as unsurpassed". Leif Wigh, Photographic Views of the Bosporus and Constantinople, Fotografiska Museet 1984.

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.
