Fisher's illustrated Constantinople is a prime example of illustrated travel books of this era. This , the first series, has 48 tissue guarded steel engraved plates, including the frontispiece, vignette title and map of Constantinople - collated and complete. NOTE - the contents only calls up 47 plates, but this volume seems to have an additional one [Ancient archway and cavern of the Balkan mountains] that is not referenced. Maroon leather binding with a very fancy blind embossed pattern to both boards and the backstrip. This book has been rebound in leather with the original leather overlaid. The only loss to the original leather is at the top / tail of the backstrip and along the backstrip edges. Corners / edges worn. Replacement endpapers. Some brown spotting throughout, more prominant towards beginning and end of book. aeg. 28x23 cm. Allom was an architect and topographical illustrator and founder member of RIBA. Known for his meticulous work this, together with his architecural origins, are quite apparent in this work. [Houfe] The engravings herein are truly atmospheric and accomplished, taking in the 'humdrum' of every day life, such as in the village of Babec, to the majesty of some of the building interiors such as the Mosque in Santa Sophia to the truly impressive views such as Constantinople seen from the Golden Horn. It is truly fascinating.
