MOURADJA (MOURADGEA) D'OHSSON, IGNATIUS:
Tableau général de l'empire Othoman, divisé en deux parties, dont l'une comprend la Législation Mahométane; l'autre, l'Histoire de l'Empire Othoman. Dédié au roi de Suede. Volumes I-II. Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Monsieur, 1787-1790. AND: Tableau général de l'empire Othoman. Tome troisème, publié par les soins de M.C. D'Ohsson. Volume III, parts I-II (text only). Paris, Firmin Didot, 1820.
. Large folio. The first two volumes: Pp. (vi), xii, 320, (8) with extra engraved title, four tables (A, AA, B and C) and 24 engraved plates illustrating 38 figures; pp. (iv), viii, 357 with 41 engraved plates depicting two tables and 95 figures. As usual figures 13 and 19 (volume one) are not present because these images were printed later and consequently delivered after the publication of the book. Several of the plates are double page. Contemporary half calf (Swedish binding), expertly rebacked to style. The third volume: pp. (iv), 128, 133-281; (9v), pp. 283-474, table (8). Text complete but without the plates. Contemporary marbled boards, calf spine with title lettered in gold, lightly rubbed. Library stamps. First edition of this monumental work on the Ottoman empire printed by the renowned French typographer Pierre-Franēois Didot, and illustrated by the foremost French artists of the time. D'Ohsson was an Armenian dragoman, born in Pera and for many years in the service of the Swedish embassy in Constantinople. He was ennobled in 1780 by the Swedish king Gustav III and D'Ohsson gratefully dedicated his work to the monarch. After his death a third volume was completed by his son in 1820. D'Ohsson's work is devoted to the Ottoman history, Muslim practices and contemporary life including information about dress, architecture and cooking. Praised because of its authenticity and truthful images. The impressive illustrations are derived from paintings made in Istanbul, either copies of earlier works (imperial portraits or illuminated manuscripts) or original works. Through D'Ohsson's connections with the court hierarchy he had access to official annals and was able to get drawings of the interiors of libraries, mosques, chapels, etc. Atabey 846. Blackmer 1164. See: Elisabeth Fraser "Dressing Turks in the French Manner", Ars Orientalis 39, Smithsonian Inst. 2010, pp. 199-229. "Writing in a fraught political context following the Russian defeat of the Ottomans, Ohsson forthrightly cast his publication as a defense of Islam and the Ottoman Empire. More than a textual apology, his illustrated book embodies a supreme act of cultural crossing." (Fraser, "Dressing Turks in the French Manner"). Provenance (two first volumes): José Moreno Landaburo Daoiz with his signature on front paste downs, Spanish diplomat in Stockholm, married to Amelie (Amalia) who was the daughter of Nils Gustaf Palin (1765-1842) and Mouradgea DÕOhssonÕs daughter Claire-Lucie. Palin was a Swedish diplomat who served in Constantinople at the end of the 18th century and again 1806-24. Subsequently this book belonged to the Hammer library and H.J. Lundgren (with bookplates).
