Regular price $40.00 Sale

Title continues: "Ou Lettres Et Memoires d'un Envoy secret de la Porte dans les Cours de l'Europe: o l'on voit les descouvertes qu'il a faites dans toutes les Cours o il s'est trouv, avec une Dissertation curieuse de leurs Forces, Politique & Religion." The first edition of the work began publication in 1684, when a volume in Italian entitled "L'esploratore turco" and a French version entitled "L'espion du grand seigneur" were published at Paris by C. Barbin. Authorship is disputed, but it is generally agreed that the first fifty letters (the original four volumes) were written by Marana. Barbier, on the authority of La Monnoye, ascribes the two volumes which appeared in 1696 under the title, "Suite de l'espion turc," to C. Cotolendi--LC." (Source, The Internet Archive)
