[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).

Pp. (ii), xxiv, 298, errata (1) ; (ii), x, 303, errata (1). Contemporary sprinkled calf, spines gilt ruled in compartments with red and green morocco title labels. Bookplate (Sir Edmund Antrobus). First edition. Ferrieres-Sauveboeuf was a French diplomat who for many years travelled throughout the Levant, Persia, Arabia and Caucasia including several visits to Constantinople. He was fluent in Turkish and Persian. His account is rich with information of the countries, people, characters, religion, etc. and mainly based on his own observations. Further he records much details about the Turkish-Russian war of 1788-9. He was engaged to undertake secret missions in the area under the ministry of Vergennes who earlier had been French ambassador to the Porte (from 1755). It might explain his loyalty to Vergennes and the vitriolic attacks against Comte de Choiseul Gouffier who was the ambassador in Constantinople at the time (1784-91). Atabey 428 (second ed.).
