First edition of both parts, complete and not listed thus in library catalogues. Until recently auction records used to consider the first part as being lost. It illustrates numerous samples of Islamic ceramics and their different decoration, ornament and colour.
A very attractive set illustrated with finely chromolithographed selection of plates. The second part depicts Islamic architecture and architectural details drawn from numerous mosques including Konia, Brousse, Sivas, Constantinople, Yenicheir, and Iznik. It also depicts Islamic calligraphy, domes on two spread sheets, doors, windows, wood carvings, and ornaments.
Bibliographic references for Part II only as follows: Atabey 1015; Creswell 445; not in Blackmer.
