    Eighteenth-Century Account of the Middle East

    Charles M.D. Perry. A View of the Levant Particularly of Constantinople, Syria, Egypt and Greece. London: T. Woodward, C. Davis and J. Shuckburgh, 1743.

    First edition. Folio. xviii, [8] subscriber's list, 524, [4, index] pages. 33 engraved plates on twenty sheets, several folding.

    Attractively bound in modern old-style full-panelled calf, gilt-tooled spine compartments, gilt-stamped red leather label. Oval impressed crease to first forty pages or so, light foxing to title page, otherwise a near fine handsome copy.

    First edition of the very informative work on the Levant by Charles Perry (1698-1780). Giving special reference to Egypt - most of the plates are of Egyptian antiquities - the work also contains an account of the Janissaries' revolt in 1730, with a portrait of their leader Ali Patrona.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
