18 Cox, Samuel S. The Isles of the Princes; or The Pleasures of Prinkipo
New York & London G.P. Putnam & Son 1887 First Edition Cloth Good with no dust jacket 
ix + 381 pp + ads. Frontis + 27 plates. First edition of this extremely scarce book, which recounts the authors sojourn in Prinkipo, a former Greek island then under Ottoman rule (now part of Turkey). Author is very chatty, talks at length about the Greek church and its "curious" but "heroic" customs, (including a description of a mnemosimo which is still practiced the same way today), but also describes such details as the different languages his barber spoke, and how many different tongues could be heard on the island. Includes lots of descriptions of old customs, Greek Monasteries, visits to mosques, information on the government and history, fishermen, gardening, birds and wild life, a trip to Halki, Plati and Oxia, cloisters, the library, views of the sultan, information on dress of the various ethnic groups on the island and much more. Wonderfully illustrated with plates that show how "exotic" this island was at the time to the Westerner, as well as a folding map showing the Bosporus and the Isle of Prinkipo. Condition of this book is good antiquarian. The dark red cloth cover has brilliant guilt minaret with gilt crescent moon, corners rubbed, spine tips chipped and spine a little darkened. Interior title page and frontis have been tipped back in and fore-edges are a little chipped. Signatures are showing, pages are clean and unmarked. Nice copy of a very scarce title. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
