London/Paris (Fisher, Son & Co.), n.d.. 23, (1)pp., 20 lithographs including illustrated half-title (most with pale yellow tint), printed by C. Hullmandel. Tissue guards. Folio. Publishers cloth gilt (somewhat soiled, expertly rebacked with portions of the original backstrip). Blackmer describes another issue, differently tinted and paginated, and with one further plate: ?First edition. About half the plates (the Turkish subjects) have been lithographed from drawings which appeared as steel engravings in Walshs Constantinople and the Scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor, 1838. Allom had contributed to that work along with several other artists, and Fisher and Son were also its publishers. The plates here have been lithographed in a grey tint by Hullmandel. Allom traveled in the East probably between 1836-1837.... Nothing seems to be known of Emma Reeve; this appears to be her only publication (Blackmer). Blackmers allusion to Emma Reeve is not a misprint; the Blackmer Corrigenda notes that NUC lists two issues of the work, with different collations: one, like the present copy, credited to Emily, dated , and another to Emma, dated . Our copy conforms to the collation of those at the Library of Congress and Harvard. The series consists of twelve Italian subjects, and eight of Turkey, embodying many peculiarities of custom, manners, and dress, which have been seldom referred to by travellers, and never given to the public in a form like the present (preface). Intermittent foxing, as is usual with this work, confined mostly to the margins and versos of the plates. (Inventory #: B149186-1)
